So… I’ve been turned into a trading card. And, yeah, I feel a bit silly. But it’s for a good cause!
Kawartha Local has created a series of “Community Superheroes” cards that will be sold as a fundraiser for The Warming Room. The six cards feature MP Maryam Monsef, Coun. Diane Therrien, CHEX weather analyst/actor/comic/everyman Mike Judson, PtboCanada co-founder Neil Morton, writer/marketing consultant/promoter of everybody/bombshell Michelle Ferreri, and some writer/communications dude/local food promoter (I’m being recognized for my work with Farm to Table Peterborough). It’s a limited run of 100 sets, with 600 cards signed and numbered by the artist.
The artist, by the way, is Jason Wilkins — he and card designer, Jeff Macklin, have made some lovely pieces of pop art.
Cards will be sold in packages of three for $17.70, online at kawarthalocal.ca, at NaKeD Chocolate and Black Honey.
The launch is TODAY (Saturday, February 6) at 4pm at Black Honey Dessert and Coffeehouse. It’s been confirmed that the entire “Super Six” will be popping by the launch — which means I can hide behind Diane Therrien.
I’d love it if y’all popped by to support this project — and gave some $$$! Or bought a couple of packs of cards at participating businesses.
Oh, and I’ll trade you four Donald Frasers for a Maryam Monsef!
