Disaster relief fundraiser

My mother passed away in Texas five years ago tomorrow (August 29). In her memory, I’m running a quick fund-raiser: almost any About Comics products sold and printed by Amazon by the end of tomorrow (and if you order today for immediate delivery, printing by tomorrow is likely), the About Comics profit will be sent to a disaster relief organization. This includes It’s Only a Game by Schulz and Jim Sasseville (whose birthday is today!), the Bridge Mix selection of those strips, and Dear President Johnson, among many other books. The order has to be Amazon selling it, not a third-party seller (if you see “Sold By someone else” over at Buy Now, click on the “13 New from $9.99”-type link, and it will take you to a list that includes Amazon as a seller.) So if you’ve been thinking of ordering any of these books… or a Negro Motorist Green Book, or Mort Drucker’s JFK Coloring Book, or any of many other books, this is the day to do it!
