Ondoy has left a lot of fellow artists with almost nothing – their homes submerged in flood water. There’s Melvin Calingo, Carlo Vergara, Gilbert Monsanto, Jay David Ramos who lost everything. Rico Rival, Danny Acuña, Jun Lofamia, Clem Rivera, Noly Zamora and Steve Gan.

Gerry Alanguilan brought to us his idea to help.

Mr. Alanguilan will be auctioning original artworks at the KOMIKON 2009. All proceeds shall be distributed to the artists affected by Ondoy.

Komikon Auction for A Cause
Komikon Auction for A Cause

We encourage other artists who have artworks or other items they would like to auction during the event, please email us at and let us know if you wish to contribute to this cause.

We shall be accepting donations in cash or kind as well at the KOMIKON table if anyone is able and willing to help our fellow artists.

We hope that everyone who will attend KOMIKON 2009 will participate in this cause!
