OK GUYS. In July 2010, I spent about a month in the Volta Region of Ghana. While I was there, I had the chance to spend time at New Seed International, an amazing NGO in the city of Ho. New Seed International provides care and support for people with HIV/AIDS, including a community clinic, an orphanage, and a school.
Esinam, 13, is in the care of New Seed International and she wants to go to school and become a doctor one day, but she needs facial surgery before she can do so. Both of her parents died when she was young, and her grandmother who was taking care of her has recently had a stroke.
Only $130 of her $10,000 goal has been raised in NINE months!
Every dollar helps! And even if you can’t donate, please just reblog this and keep her in your thoughts.

New Seed International’s website and facebook:
oh my god, you guys, this is unbelievable. We are Tumblr and it is *not acceptable* that we can’t get the word out about this fundraiser and help this girl have the life she wants. It’s just $10,000. We pooped out that much for a new Veronica Mars movie in .000002 seconds, but it’s taken Esinam nine months to get FIVE DONATIONS. We NEED TO DO THIS. We CAN do this.
Stop what you are doing and reblog this post. Go to the donation page. Chip in. Please. If every person following me just threw in 5 bucks each, we’d be 75% funded overnight. You guys. LET’S FUCKING DO THIS FOR HER.
Please reblog! I know some people may be reluctant because it doesn’t match their main blogs theme but there’s a little button that lets you delete posts you make. Leave it up for an hour or so so it can get around. Just get it around. There’s always someone out there willing to donate if you aren’t!
Donate of you can! If you can’t afford, please reblog!

Waahahaha do waaaant!
My roommate and I are so drift compatible it’s not even funny and last night we were talking about what our jaeger would be named (Tiny Dancer [and yes, that song would play to celebrate our victories and as we get ready for battle]) and that I would totally be that pilot who loves the celebrity status, hamming it up at every interview, talk show, and red carpet…and then this happened.
This is such a winner.
I would cancel the apocalypse all day long for you. Lawdy.
Just messing around from this past few days.
So I think I forgot to tell you guys that I got a job like a week ago?? Which is mostly to blame for my absence (sorry, I’ll try to be better (I know, I say that a lot though)) but I like it and the people are cool and friendly to me which is good. Anyways, one of them asked me if I would draw them Balto’s Muk and Luk and she’s sooo nice, I had to accept. And honestly, HOW do I say no to drawing these two?? I don’t, I just don’t.
Also, toned paper is so much fun, I love it.
