Heroes for Haiti announced

201001151449 Heroes for Haiti announcedEvents beyond our fantasy world continue to unfold, and no one vaguely human can fail to be horrified and moved by the images coming out of Haiti’s devastation. Artist Mike Cavallaro has organized a website, Heroes 4 Haiti with information on how concerned creators and readers can help:

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.

  1. I love this idea, so I’ve just listed 2 pieces of my original art on ebay, and plan to add a third in a short while. Here are some links:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110481892245

    These 2 pages are original art from my 2007 Tokyopop manga, “Battle of the Bands.” Later I will add a Catwoman drawing.
    Please check them out, and bid! 100% of the money will go to Doctors Without Borders. THANKS!

  2. And here’s that Catwoman drawing:

    You know, if “manga” isn’t your thing! ;)

  3. Just wanted to say thanks to The Beat for helping to spread the word.

  4. Don’t think Chuck Dixon will be contributing: http://dixonverse.net/board3/index.php?topic=1974.msg35655#msg35655

  5. Um, ouch. :(

    This is a fantastic idea & although giving to good causes like MErcy Corps or Doctors w/out Borders is also key, I am happiest to help out in a way that I feel does the most good, given access to resources. I’m gonna dig up a piece of art that we can auction for Heroes for Haiti by Monday. Then use the unfortunately high # of social networks I’m on to yap about it.

    Extra heads-up/thanks to Charles Brownstein of the CBLDF for pointing this out to be a coupla days ago! Loooove, you internets..

  6. I’m in. Two pieces of original concept art from “Planet Hulk,” with the proceeds benefitting Doctors Without Borders.

    Bidding for my original art sale ends Friday night.
