Too often, we are led to feel guilty by people wanting us to give to charity. Well, here’s a proponent of charity who will put his money where his mouth is. Bearman at Bearman Cartoons has recently started his “Third Annual Bearman Cartoons Charity Challenge.” It’s an initiative with a twist.
Notice the ad on this page to the right of this blog. By placing this on my site, dear old Bearman will cough up $5 to feed the hungry by way of the Cincinnati FreeStore Foodbank. But placing an ad on a site isn’t the only way to get him to donate. Last year I came across Bearman Comics right as he was doing the Charity Challenge 2010. I followed him on Twitter and he donated some cash because of it. I was new to Twitter and all this social media stuff and it really opened my eyes to the possibilities.
Check out what he’s doing at http://beartoons.com/2011/05/01/bearman-cartoons-charity-challenge-2011. If you’re like me, you’ll stick around and chuckle at his comics. I really like his stuff because it’s such a refreshing view on editorial cartoons. Some of the ones in the paper and such are a bit stuffy for me. Beartoons kicks pop culture and politics in the groin and makes it funny.
I wish Bearman the best in this effort. Take a few seconds and give him a visit. You’ll be glad you did.
