Crippen posts his favourite christmas card cartoon / 15 December 2009
This time of year I'm often asked to produce cartoons for christmas cards for the many groups and organisations of Disabled people throughout the UK.
This year however, there's been a noticeable reduction in these requests, mainly due, I'm told, to the fact that many of these organisations are just too strapped (lacking funds) to be able to afford to have cards printed and posted this year.
So, in the spirit of good will and co-operation that exists at this time of year I thought it would be a nice idea to post one of my favourite christmas cartoons and dedicate it to all of those organisations of Disabled people that are continuing to fight for their very existence.
And if you haven't received a card from your local Crip group this year, please accept this one on their behalf. And why not make it your New Year resolution to pop down there and see if there's anything you can do to help raise the funding needed to continue their vital work during 2010.
