Draw-A-Thon Charity is a continuous 18 hour charity event. Though participants only need to be there for at least 5 hours; artists, volunteers, and spectators are more than welcome to stay for longer! Artists make art with the materials provided, which will be ordered to the demand of artist sign-ups. During this time the event is broadcasted live over the internet and for the general audience to view. Audience that would like to contribute to the cause can donate money and/or buy works created in Draw-A-Thon through e-Bay auctions.
The charity that Gourd Visual Artists will be helping is Child's Play (http://www.childsplaycharity.org/). This charity will help us by promoting our event on the internet as an official event of Child’s Play as well as facilitate the donation process and make most if not all proceeds go directly to charity.
Since we will be having the help Child’s Play, this year’s theme will be video games and its pop-culture. All mediums are welcome and provided.
Artistically challenged? No worries we need all the help we can get. Besides being an artist you can sign up to be part of the film crew, broadcast crew, sales crew, or any other crew for that matter. For full volunteer descriptions check this Google Doc.
Oh! Did I forget to mention free food? So what are you waiting for sign-up below!
Truth be told, we could sit here and draw all day. But it would all mean nothing if it weren't for you, the donors! There are three ways you can help:

Bid on works that are produced at Draw-A-Thon.
Tell your family and friends! Share on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, anywhere! The more people we get the more money we'll collect.
