I will get to it, yes?

My son, Harrison, was born with Polycystic Kidney Disease ( PKD ) on World Kidney Day in 2012. There's a killer in pursuit, and so must I pursueth. The only way I know how to save his life is through art, entrepreneurism and philanthropy. Kidney Disease affects an estimated 1 in 10 North Americans ( over 30 million ) and kills more people annually than Breast Cancer and Prostate Cancer combined. Half of all PATRONAGE will go towards the fight against Kidney Disease. HELP ME SAVE MY SON, the millions worldwide and KILL THIS BLOODY DISEASE.


This is how my Patreon works: Fans pledge per month. This is NOT Kickstarter, it’s a recurring pledge of a smaller amount, ( the price of a coffee ) not a single one time donation. You can set a monthly max, so you never go above your budget. I draw. You pledge. Together we save my son. Easy.

*IMPORTANT*
Those with Kidney Disease should avoid HIGH SODIUM FOODS. So, in honor of your PATRONAGE, Harrison's BROTHER WILL EAT ONE SPICY PICKLE. Filmed Each time, see for yourself. Enjoy
.

The Pursuit of Mandy. This is my weapon, I mean comic strip. The extraordinary benefit of your monthly pledge...



'The Pursuit of Mandy' is about a little girl, Mandy, and her three imagined friends, Parry, Sam and Fenton. Together and totally unbound, they experience the extraordinary wonder of childhood to its fullest, escaping the clutches of age and time and remind us, panel-by-panel, that it's never too late to go back.



"Touching and tender, crazy and delightful, sweet, silly, poignant, and sad. I think you captured that childhood imaginative streak beautifully...you're in a class with Bill Watterson and the top strips of Jef Mallett." - FAN





I make a comic and a bit of money
and HALF of that bit goes where?? Good Question.

Your PATRONAGE will help support The Polycystic Kidney Disease Foundation of Canada.

The PKD Foundation of Canada leads the national fight against polycystic kidney disease (PKD) through research programs, education, awareness and support to help discover vital treatments for PKD and improve the lives of all those it affects.


Your PATRONAGE will help support POP Remedy.
POP Remedy is a comic strip syndicate married to social innovation. Imagine a place where current syndicated comic artists, retired comic artists, and new and upcoming comic artists could create and fuel great projects that help people and planet causes...all for GOOD...always? A comic strip syndicate to remedy the world...This is POP REMEDY.  www.popremedy.com

Your PATRONAGE will help support KIDNEY GRIT.

KIDNEY GRIT IS A PASSIONATE & PERSEVERANT SOCIAL INNOVATION TO CRUSH KIDNEY DISEASE. Kidney Grit is a social enterprise, charity and foundation. We invite people to be part of a MOVEMENT, not just a brand. We bring attention, awareness, education and action through passionate and perseverant marketing for the cure of kidney disease. With innovative, funny, shocking, simple, beautiful, GRITTY campaigns we will inspire current and new global kidney community and forums to match and surpass what others have done personally and financially for lesser global diseases.

“Grit is passion and perseverance for very long-term goals. Grit is having stamina. Grit is sticking with your future, day in, day out, not just for the week, not just for the month, but for years, and working really hard to make that future a reality. Grit is living life like it's a marathon, not a sprint.”
- Angela Lee Duckworth

AT KIDNEY GRIT WE BELIEVE THESE 5 THINGS…

  • that Kidney Disease is amongst the leading causes of death globally.
  • that marketing towards disease campaigns determines survival for those diagnosed.
  • that currently early detection and living organ donation and soon new dialysis technology, 3D Bio-Printed, Artificial and Cloned Kidney breakthroughs can and will end kidney disease.
  • that Social Innovation such as nonprofit compensation, advertising & marketing, the taking of risk in pursuit of new ideas for generating revenue, time to grow, and profit are more important than low overhead if problems are actually getting solved.
  • that GRIT, a passion and perseverance towards long term goals such as curing and ending Kidney Disease, is a trait one must have beyond any.

"Finally, cartoonists are finding a way to make the planet a better place.
This is a great concept - check it out." 
- Jim Toomey, Sherman's Lagoon

What else have we done to fight this fucker?

We have raised thousands for The Kidney Foundation of Canada. Below are links to the many other achievements.
