Second Attempt Raises the Necessary Funds
Kids Comics Con and the Color of Comics exhibit will be going to Senegal, Africa, thanks to supporters who helped raise $5,201, passing the needed goal of $5000. Alex Simmons said the fundraiser continues
until Tuesday, October 26th, at 6 PM (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2018979378/kcc-expo-2-africa
), so additional funds are still welcome.
“We love that our colleagues, comic fans, and supporters believe, like we do, that answering the call and sharing our art is worth supporting,” Simmons said. “When we were asked to bring the Kids Comic Con to children and teens in Senegal, we wanted to say yes but the funding wasn’t there. Now it’s very satisfying that so many friends agreed with us and made sure this beautiful international moment will happen.”
