This all started with a cartoon I did of Illinois State Representative Jaime Andrade and Machine Boss Dick Mell:
Although my politics are serious, I am okay with some good natured fun, even with those I would never, ever, ever vote for. Especially for a good cause.
When Representative Andrade offered to make a $200 donation to the International Dreamers Scholarship Fund for a signed copy of the cartoon I drew of him and Dick Mell digging up dead voters, I quickly agreed.
The International Dreamers Scholarship Fund raises money to pay for undocumented students to attend college.
And in exchange, Andrade asked me to publicize a current bill, HB143 which allows Illinois tax payers to check off on their tax bill for the same purpose.
I quickly agreed.
The bill is currently in the Rules Committee and probably needs some help to move it along. An email to your state rep would be a good idea.
Meanwhile I am waiting for State Representative Andrade to send me verification of his contribution, or a check made out to me and I will forward it. And send him the signed copy of the cartoon.
Those who ordered prints and sent me a check should receive their prints in the next few days and the donation has been made to the IDSF.
