The Komikero Artists group would like to make an announcement with regards to fundraising efforts through auctions at this Saturday’s Komikon. We planned these fundraising event a few months ago, initially to benefit our fellow Komikero in need, Vergil Espinosa for his medical needs. Then the earthquake in Bohol happened, and Lui Antonio contacted our group if we could help raise funds for that calamity as well. We agreed.
We will continue with our fund raising efforts for Bohol Earthquake victims as well as for Vergil at this coming Komikon.
We are fully aware of the great and unimaginable tragedy that has befallen our country within the last week due to Typhoon Yolanda. We understand that many of you would wish to help those victims as well. Please do not worry as we will have plenty of opportunity to do so. For this Saturday, we do wish to go ahead and raise funds for our original recipients: Bohol and Vergil, as this is what we have already promised to do.
There are now plans to have another fund raising specifically for Typhoon Yolanda victims. Since it is still currently being organized, we cannot share more info about it, but rest assured it is being put together will all due haste as we understand that the need is great and immediate.
Thank you for your understanding.
*The above ELMER illustration is one I will donate to benefit Vergil Espinosa specifically. It’s pen and ink on 11″x17″ art board.
