Last week marked the end of the current financial quarter and the end of the second period of collecting money for charity from our sales of carrier bags.
This is our first full quarter and together we raised £8.15!
Last time I made a donation to Shelter in support of Paul Cornell's Beard For Lent. This time I'm making a donation to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. Created in 1986, the CBLDF is a United States non-profit organisation dedicated to the protection of the First Amendment rights of the comics art form and its community of retailers, creators, publishers, librarians, and readers.
You can find out more about the CBDLF at their website. Neil Gaiman is a supporter of their work and he talks about his involvement in this interview.
Thanks everyone. The next carrier bag donation will be after the end of September. If you have a charity you'd like Proud Lion to support, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
