BearLove Good. Cancer Bad.

I'm trying to raise $20k to donate half to the National Wildlife Federation (for the bears), and half to the American Cancer Society (because cancer is shitty).

I run a comedy website called The Oatmeal.

Last year I wrote a blog post about another website called FunnyJunk which stole a bunch of my comics and hosted them on their website without giving me credit.  They apparently didn’t like my blog post and recently FunnyJunk sent me a letter stating that unless I pay them $20,000 in damages they’re going to file a federal lawsuit against me. You can view the letter along with my response here

Instead of mailing the owner of FunnyJunk the money, I'm going to send the above drawing of his mother.  I'm going to try and raise $20,000 and instead send it to the National Wildlife Federation and the American Cancer Society. 

I’m hoping that philanthropy trumps douchebaggery and greed.
