Drawing A Day #93: Bench warmer

December 15th, 2010

My last D.A.D. of 2010 is inspired by a suggestion from my friend and former teammate, Kate — we used to play on the same women’s competitive ultimate frisbee team. She suggested Bench warmer, and my addiction to knitting snuck its way in:

As an aside, Kate never played the role of bench warmer (that would’ve been me :) — in fact, her frisbee-playing and on-field butt-kicking is still going strong (while I retired years ago).

And speaking of kicking butt… we just submitted our first donation to the Canadian Cancer Society yesterday. Wanna see???

We are sending them our donations on a quarterly basis. This is from our sales, starting on our  June 7 launch up  until September 30 — totalling $1808.81.

When we started this thing, we said “If we sell one print a week, then that will be over $500 to the CCS in our first year. And then hopefully things will grow from there.”

Obviously, and with your help, we’ve kinda blown our original goal out of the water… THANK YOU so much for all your support, feedback and rah-rah-rahs. We are overwhelmed, humbled, and we know our Dad is somewhere beaming with pride.

    Yep, somewhere your dad IS beaming with pride, as are we all. You found opportunity in the most unlikely of situations and the world is a better place for it.
