It's Happy Harbor's annual comic-making marathon fundraiser: 24 Hour Comics Day!
This year the fruits of our comic creating labours will support
Boys and Girls Clubs / Big Brothers Big Sisters.
24 Hour Comics Day is a worldwide event celebrating the art of making comics.
Comic creators are challenged to make a complete 24-page comic - written, pencilled, and inked...
in just 24 hours!
We're continuing our decade-long tradition of using this event to raise funds for important community organizations. In order to participate, each entrant is required to collect monies for Boys and Girls Clubs Big Brothers Big Sisters. We ask that each person try to collect a minimum of $100 towards our goal of matching last year's total $6167.50!
Fundraising is easy! Family, friends, and co-workers are usually happy to give $5 or $10 for your efforts, but there are even more creative tactics you can employ. Incentives like putting donors into your comic, offering custom art or drawing lessons, or even making cookies and other snacks to sell to fellow comic-makers at the event are just a few ways to draw attention to your fundraising efforts.
And as if supporting charitable community organizations weren't enough, the top fundraiser will receive a $250 gift certificate for Happy Harbor! Second Runner Up will get a $150 gift certificate and the next 3 top fundraisers after them will get $50 each!
Want to be a Donor?
You can support any individual artist's efforts or donate directly to the cause! Either way, we'll make sure you get a shout out for your contributions. All donations over $20 will receive a tax receipt from Boys and Girls Clubs / Big Brothers Big Sisters.
