Third Annual CBLDF Fund Drive

It's December, so it's time for YACB's Third Annual Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF) Fund Drive.

It's styled on the matching-funds pledge drives that my local NPR station does (but without interrupting Wait Wait Don't Tell Me six times in an hour...)

For the period between now and December 29, if 10 people join as CBLDF members at the $25 level (or higher) I will donate $250 to CBLDF.

(To donate, go to the CBLDF Website, click on the link across the top that says 'Membership', the scroll down to the join link.)

Just email me the confirmation email that you get from CBLDF when you make your donation. I'll post periodic updates until the goal has been met. (Please mention in your email if you'd prefer to remain anonymous.)

From the CBLDF site: "The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund was founded in 1986 as a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of First Amendment rights for members of the comics community."

UPDATE: The Fund Drive is over, and alas we did not meet the goal this year. Only seven people donated; I've sent in my matching gift of $175. Hopefully we'll do better next year!

Thanks for supporting the Fund with this drive! Every bit helps enormously, so I tip my hat to you for taking the initiative to get folks on board!
