National Doodle Day

 
The kids have some art for sale!

National Doodle Day is an annual project in which celebrity doodles are auctioned off to raise money for a charity.  Past doodlers include people like Jay Leno, Tony Bennett, and Barack Obama.  Proceeds from this year's sales will go to help people suffering from Neurofibromatosis, a disease in which tumors grow along the nervous system.

Someone from the National Doodle Day committee saw an article about the Z-Kids in the newspaper, felt they qualified as celebrities, and invited them to participate.

Here are the Z-Kids' doodles:








Many of the other folks who donated Doodles this year are also involved in children's literature.  Here are a few examples:

Calef Brown


Eric Carle


Neil Gaiman


Daniel Pinkwater


Peter Reynolds


Andy Runton


Michael Slack


Mo Willems


Aaron Zenz
