Sweet Tooth Cover Being Auctioned!

The Cover Art for Sweet Tooth #10 will be auctioned tomorrow night at The Gladstone Hotel in Toronto as part of a charity fund-raiser for JUSTICE FOR CHILDREN AND YOUTH. Details below. Any non-Toronto residents who are serious about placing a bid on the art contact me via email and we can arrange to place a bid for you and have the work shipped. Bidding will start at 200, but covers generally sell for 1000, so this is a chance to get one for a good price!

JFCY is a non-profit, legal clinic that provides legal assistance, advice and information to low-income children and youth in Toronto and across the province. We pursue the rights of children and youth through outreach and education, community development, policy and law reform, and test case litigation. Since 1978, JFCY has been empowering children and youth to obtain fair and equal access to legal, educational, medical and social resources.

We also run a specialty program, Street Youth Legal Services (SYLS), the only organization in Toronto reaching out to street-involved and homeless youth on their own “turf” – at drop-ins, shelters and health clinics – to make legal information, advice and referrals readily available. SYLS also conducts regular training sessions at some 25 youth agencies to educate the frontline staff who interact with street-involved youth every day.
