Jade's Gift Foundation
Bryan Raines, who used to create a webcomic called Into the V.A.S.T., was one of the first people in the webcomic community I got to know a little online when I started Lindemannade, and he's always seemed like a good, genuine guy. He disappeared online for several months though to support his loved ones when going through some tough times and reappeared on New Year's Eve with a message none of us wanted to hear.
His fiancé's daughter Jade, his step-daughter to be, whom he'd posted some touching photos with online previously, was born with Cerebral Palsy. In a heartbreaking start to the new year we learnt that she had sadly passed away a month earlier. BUT, out of this terrible loss, the family are trying to start something good in honour of Jade's memory.
Jade's Gift Foundation is a charity they are hoping to set up to essentially give whatever help they can to ease the burdens of families of children with severe disabilities. It might sound a little ambitious, but I've seen the internet rally around great causes before so who knows where they can go with this, but I can say any donation you do give I'm certain will be put to the best of use. Click here to go take a look and I can assure you any donation you make will make their day.
If you've gotten this far, thanks for reading, here's a stupid picture of the Mario Bros. as thanks. Hell if you donate $10 and leave them a comment saying I sent you I'll draw you a similar MASTERPIECE of your (SFW) choosing*
Thanks for reading, a new comic will appear as usual this coming Monday, January 5th.
*I think I'll be able to have Bryan help me contact you via your Indiegogo contact info but if not just hound me at the usual places and I'll make sure you get your absolutely stupid doodle. As I said, safe-for-work suggestions only and I'll email you/'social-media'-you your desired stupidity!
