National Doodle Day
May 12 will be National Doodle Day, a day where children's book authors and illustrators' doodles, along with that of celebrities, will be auctioned off on Ebay. Funds raised will benefit NF, Inc., an organization assisting people and families affected by neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder. Organized by publishers Albert Whitman & Company, Chronicle Books, Gibbs Smith Publishers, and Running Press, National Doodle Day will feature doodles by a number of children's book profs, such as Eric Carle, Jon Scieszka, Peter Reynolds, Annie Barrows, and Neil Gaiman. Before the auction begins on May 12, doodles can be seen at doodledayusa.org.
