46 Million

There are still a couple of days left for this fundraiser (by way of eBay) to assist in positively influencing the current health care debate. Started by Chicago cartoonist Anders Nilson, "46 million" refers to the number of people not covered by health insurance in this country. More info from Lilli Carrre's site...

Anders Nilsen has organized an online art auction and fundraiser to promote universal health care. Money raised will be donated to Democracy for America Now, a national advocacy group that is running television ads to push the Public Option in democratic swing districts and offering support to congress members who take a stand for the policy.

contributing artists are:
John Porcellino, Genevieve Elverum, Chris Ware, Ivan Brunetti, Dan Clowes, Phil Elverum (Mount Eerie), Jeffrey Brown, Paul Hornschemeier, Todd Baxter, Sonnenzimmer Print Studio, Adam Henry, Kevin Huizenga, Jay Ryan (The Bird Machine Print Studio), Lynda Barry, Lilli Carre, David Heatley, Kyle Obriot, Stephen Eichhorn, Buenaventura Press, Sammy Harkham and the organizer, Anders Nilsen.
