Doodle Day is more than just a day, it is the set of all days between May 8 and May 18 inclusive. The purpose of naming this period of time is to draw attention to neurofibromatosis (NF), a common neural disorder. May is NF Awareness month, and to participate in Doodle Day, some celebrities are offering drawings and photographs for auction on eBay. All the proceeds go towards NF, Inc. for research for a cure and education about this disorder.
You can browse some of the celebrity offerings here, and I have to say I’m not familiar with all of the artists. If you’re interested in art by Candice Bergen, Jim Davis, Jeff Bridges, or Mickey Dolenz, you can purchase their doodles and support this particular charity. As of last night, the works of art going for the highest prices were created by Seth Green, Neil Gaiman, Gillian Anderson, and Ellen DeGeneres.
Have you ever participated in a charity auction?
