Over the last few years Team Cul de Sac has grown not only in the amount of money we have raised for Parkinsons research but also from people who have been inspired. The Coffee Cup Challenge was brainstormed by our very own Heather Mobley Peagler.
She helps every year (with a bunch of other fine friends) in making the Heroescon Drink and Draw the most awesome event ever!
Heather is right, what if we give up a coffee, eating fast food or wine for one day and we donate it to TCDS!
I say YESI I am in and I hope you joining us on October the 8th. Nuff about my thoughts here it is. Thanks Heather!
Team Cul de Sac has been inspired by the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and is issuing its own challenge with the Coffee Cup Challenge scheduled for October 8, 2014. Nuff about my thoughts here it is.
The Coffee Cup Challenge is simple. We are asking supporters of Team Cul de Sac and the fight against Parkinson's Disease to give up their daily coffee and donate that amount to Team Cul de Sac. Maybe you're not a coffee drinker, but can't start the day without a nice icy Diet Coke or celebrate Half Price Wine Bottle night at your favorite restaurant on Wednesdays, instead of making those purchases, make a donation! It's a small sacrifice that can make a big difference!
We selected October 8 as our challenge day as it is Richard Thompson's birthday. What a great way to honor a wonderfully talented man by helping the fight against a devastating disease!
We hope that you will join us on October 8, but putting the coffee down and clicking on the Team Cul de Sac fundraising page and making a donation. Share with friends and family that you've taken on the challenge with #CoffeeCupChallenge on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Robin Williams was one of the brightest stars in my universe. With the recent news of Robin Williams having Parkinson's I have had people ask me what Team Cul de Sac could do. Any cartoonist this week that has done a Robin Williams tribute cartoon and would like to donate the original art to Team Cul de Sac, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and follow us Team Cul de Sac on facebook and check out email@example.com . We will auction all the art we recieve to the Michael J Fox Foundation in Robin Williams honor. He loved comics and is there a better way to remember Robin?
Please Share and ask your favorite cartoonist for a donation:
Nobody has made me laugh like Robin did. I will miss him more than I care to admit. Today we found out Parkinson's had decided to attack another comic genius. I hate Parkinson's. I hate how it has destroyed people I am close to. This is why I fight for a cure. After you read the Variety article please watch the video below. Smile and laugh and remember the great Robin Williams.
The power of Bill. That is what Stephan Pastis said about Bill Watterson in Comicriffs today. I can't agree more.
We could spend all day telling you what a difference Bill Watterson has made in our Team Cul de Sac but we won't embarrass him too much.
I will say this about the guy. He is wonderfully kind, humble, a great friend and if my cat Gizmo ever escapes the house, I am calling Bill to rescue her.
