I hope you enjoy these and I would really appreciate your spreading the word. My stories are spread by word-of-mouth so this is the way that others might also see them.

This strip was originally published October 23, 2013. Newer readers probably haven’t seen it yet so I hope the reprise is appreciated!

Donations are actually hard to come by for Charities and other not-for-profit organizations. Consider what you might be able to donate. It might be a good time to clean that closet, attic, cellar, shed, or garage! You might have someone else’s next treasured possession. everywhere!

Do It Yourself Lemonade — Wheel Tales of Willow City

I published “Do it Yourself Lemonade” over a year ago here (Oct 21 2013), but thought I would republish it for new readers…

Home-Made Do-It-Yourself Lemonade Kits — by Donation!

Newer followers of the strip might not have seen this cartoon from over a year ago, so I’m reposting it.

I hope you enjoy these and would really appreciate your spreading the word. My stories are spread by word-of-mouth so this is the way that others might also see them.

This strip was published as “Wheel Tales of We’ll Make Cents” previously but we thought it would be better to publish more independently — hence the change in venue and name.

We were originally published in “We’ll Make Cents“. They are an organization that helps support a number of not-for-profit causes which might get overlooked. Why not pop over and give them a look.

Donations are actually hard to come by for Charities and other not-for-profit organizations. Consider what you might be able to donate. It might be a good time to clean that closet, attic, cellar, shed, or garage! You might have someone else’s next treasured possession. Perhaps you don’t live near Auckland and We’ll Make Cents, but there are people in need everywhere!
