#RoboCharity Auction: Francesco Francavilla’s RoboCop Sketch
  |  @   |  

Artist Francesco Francavilla is currently holding an auction on his website for a RoboCop sketch, with all of the money going to the #RoboCharity for Forgotten Harvest. The sketch shows the crimefighting cybog serving food to the hungry in his mission to protect and serve the people of Detroit.

Bidding on the sketch will end at 6pm EST on Sunday, February 27, 2011.

#RoboCharity came in response last week to the news that fans had raised over $50,000 (currently over $60,000) for Detroit to get a RoboCop statue (one the city officials neither asked for nor do they seem to want). While most agreed that banding together to raise money for something like this was very cool in theory, many people felt that money should actually go to help the people of Detroit. Thus the @RoboCharity Twitter account was created and #RoboCharity hastag to bring awareness to Forgotten Harvest, an organization that gets food out to the hungry in the Metro Detroit region.

I should point out that on the RoboCop Statue Kickstarter page, the majority of backers donated $1 and they made a difference, so why not consider sending the same amount (or more) to Forgotten Harvest? According to the Forgotten Harvest website, just $1 provides 5 meals, so no matter how small your donation is, it will count in a big way.
