Every so often, the comics-making community comes together to help those in need. One recent example is the Comics Express project, where creators like Dave Roman Raina Telgemeier, and Jennifer & Matthew Holm (and many others!) have come together to make a free, kid-friendly comic book to hand out to children affected by the recent tornado in Joplin, Missouri.
They've raised enough money to cover printing and shipping costs, but you can still donate money to go towards the Joplin Public Schools' Adopt-A-Classroom Fund to buy new school supplies.
