My brother-in-law, Mike Schmidt, was diagnosed with Leukemia last week. Over the past few days, I've learned everything I can about the disease and what I garnered from the research is that I want to help him and his family as much as I possibly can.
What you need to know about Mike: He's one of the kindest people you'll ever meet. Soft-spoken, humble and hard-working. A true stand up guy in the truest sense. Mike is the sole breadwinner of a family of 8, busting his ass trying to make a small local service and gas station afloat. With his diagnosis, Mike will be out of commission for at least the next month, which means he won't be able to work. Which means his family needs some support.
I can't do much, but I can draw. So I've approached some of my friends and with the gracious help and special arrangment of my friends at Steve Jackson Games, I've been allowed to create a Limited Edition Munchkin Print featuring the characters Spyke and Flower. The print is called "Kick Down the Door To Cancer" and it depicts the two characters getting ready to kick leukemia's ass. It comes in two flavors: a digital download or a physical print that comes signed by me. Print size is 8.5 x 11.
This print will only be available until November 30. 100% of the sales of this print will go to help Mike's family. I'm not keeping a dime. In fact, I am currently in negotiation with the printing company to get the printing donated as well so I can maximize the amount of money I can send them. Prints will be sent out in early December when I will get them printed.
Please consider buying a print and helping out. On behalf the Schmidt family, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
