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
