Thinking Ahead to Make a Better Christmas

Tutorial / 13 October 2020

Of course, I know my favorite Halloween, hasn't come yet, but I'm already thinking ahead.

I'll explain why. 

We all know 2020 has been an absolute shit of a year. Worse than any I can remember in my lifetime. Genuinely for the first time, I'm not certain about the future of society.

It's been very hard, emotionally and financially, for a lot of people. 

And it made me realize this the other day; A lot of kids are going to have a very shitty Christmas. 

So, I think I'll start planning ahead now. Buying. Saving. To make a decent sized toy donation to a kids toy charity in my area.

In fact, if I thought that trick or treating was actually going to happen this year, I'd buy a pile of toys and hand them out instead of Candy. 

So, there's got to be a way to make this happen on some scale. 

If you're out there reading this and want to join in, make it bigger, have ideas, know of a good children's toy charity, anything like that, feel free to drop me a line and let me know. 

Of course, it doesn't have to be a big event, especially if you live in a different region or country than me. Just find a charity in your area and do what you can, even if it's just spreading the word.

In the meantime I made some art:
