12:43pm: HEROES 4 HAITI
from Mike Cavallaro:

Hi everyone,
We've all heard the horrible news coming from earthquake-stricken Haiti this week. There are a number of organizations offering to turn our donations into aid for the people who need it most. In an effort to respond to this tragedy in some helpful way, we're suggesting that artists, collectors, and others in the comics and animation communities, as well as other groups, put a piece of artwork or other collectible or service up for auction on eBay, with 100% of the proceeds going to your charity of choice via eBay's "Giving Works" option.

To help spread the word about this initiative, we've created an information webpage at:
http://www.heroes4haiti.com

and a Facebook page for easy sharing of recent updates at:
http://www.heroes4haiti-fb.com

If you have artwork you can sell, backissues, other collectibles, or if you can auction off an art lesson, etc., to raise money for the charitable organizations on the front lines of the relief efforts, please consider doing so.

Also, PLEASE do whatever you can to forward this message and spread the word to people both in and outside the comics and animation communities so that we can make our efforts as beneficial as possible.

From the HEROES 4 HAITI website:

Help The Victims of the Haitian Earthquake!

Heroes 4 Haiti is a grassroots movement of artists seeking to raise money for organizations helping victims of the recent Haitian earthquake. Heroes 4 Haiti is not an organization, it's a collective response to human tragedy. We're asking everyone to donate a little bit of their talent, money or time towards helping those in need.

Please join us in helping our fellow human beings by creating art and auctioning it off for charity by listing it yourself using eBay's Giving Works program, by bidding in these auctions, by donating to relief organizations, or by volunteering your time to helping rebuild Haiti in the wake of this catastrophe.
