I’m reading vintage manga for charity!
Hi guys! I’m doing everything I can to support my favorite charity, The Time In Children’s Arts Initiative. Time In teaches opera through hands on art as well as literature through manga with entire classes of kids from 3 of NYC’s most underfunded schools. Time In happens during the school day for a half-day every week, alternating weeks between studio time and gallery hops to NYC’s most fabulous galleries and museums. The program keeps getting bigger, and next year, Time In kids will go all the way from Pre-K through the 5th grade, serving 800 kids!
In the pictures above, you can see some of the wonderful Time In Kids’ drawings of characters from Benjamin Britten’s opera of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and vintage-manga-inspired princesses of the sea from Rimsky-Korsakov‘s opera Sadko.
To help support this incredible organization, I’m doing a vintage manga charity-read! I’m starting with the 9 manga in the first picture. To help me out in my charity-reading quest, I would love it if you would donate as little or as much as you can. I’ll be giving updates on every manga on the list. Don’t be shy, every dollar counts!
