Ziggy – Million Dollar Challenge for LiveStrong
Believe it or not the author of the world famous Ziggy cartoon (Tom Wilson) also lives in Cincinnati. My we are a talented bunch. And a generous one.
I mentioned before that Tom had written a book called Zig Zagging: Loving Madly….Losing Badly…How Ziggy Saved My Life. I bought the book several months ago and read it in one sitting. It delves into Tom’s personal battles with survival both after taking over Ziggy from his father when he became ill to dealing with his wife’s battle with cancer and her ultimate death from it.
Not an emotional person but twice this year something I read or saw has made me cry unexpectedly. The first was watching UP and the second was reading this book. It is a great book and what makes it even better is that to celebrate his wife’s life, Tom is giving all the proceeds from his book between November 18, 2009 (the anniversary of her death) until January 19, 2009 (her birthday) to LiveStrong (The Lance Armstrong Foundation).
I created a fan art toon to promote this great cause. So if anyone needs a gift for a cartoony loving friend/family member, get this book.
