At first I was skeptical about the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise awareness of ALS (otherwise known as Lou Gehrig's disease).I wondered how people dumping ice water on their heads could do anything to help. But it turns out I'm an idiot.
As of Tuesday, the ALS Association had received $22.9 million in donations nationwide compared with $1.9 million during the same time period last year (July 29 to Aug. 19), according to the organization’s website.
Since the widest reach that I have is with my comic strip, I thought it would be fun if in addition to donating $100, I had Skull take the challenge and then call out some of his friends in the funny pages. So Jim Davis, Jeff Keane and Bill Amend, Skull has called out your characters to take the challenge and help spread awareness. Your characters have 24 hours to respond. (fans, encourage these artists to draw something. They have an incredible reach with their features).
