In addition to being a cartoonist, I am a volunteer at Chicago’s CHIRP Radio, which is a not-for-profit, volunteer-run, community focused internet radio station. Even though we are 99% volunteer, CHIRP still need money to run (rent, streaming costs, etc), so we have fund-raising campaigns periodically.
I’m trying to raise $200 for CHIRP in the next two weeks… and since I’ll be at SPX this weekend, I came up with an idea:
At SPX this year I’ll be selling $5 sketches to raise money for CHIRP. All money from the sketches goes straight to CHIRP. Look for me at table C10.
(The sketches above are Chicago musicians Daniel Knox and Liam Davis, if you were wondering. )
If you won’t be at SPX, I have a slightly different offer, which I’ll post about tomorrow. Watch this space for details.
(I am a DJ at CHIRP and will be on air spinning tunes this Friday morning, 6-9am Central Time, if you’d like to check it out. You can listen at chirpradio.org, or via iTunes, under “Radio”, under “Eclectic”. CHIRP is pretty important to me. I think we do good work, and I really appreciate your support.)
