Cartoonists Against Terrorism (CAT) was conceived on the evening of September 11th, 2001 and established online on September 14th in response to the acts of terrorism perpetrated on September 11th, 2001. It is a forum for cartoonist, creators and the public at-large who were outraged by such heinous acts of violence against civilians of the US and the world!
CAT founder Rick London is proud to announce that the project has attracted works of over 30 cartoonists and writers from around the world (including five Londons Times Cartoons illustrators) regarding 9-11 and the following War On Terrorism.
London, also the founder of Londons Times Cartoons http://www.londonstimes.com is working with licensing agent Shary Klamer of Artistic Licensing (firstname.lastname@example.org) to locate a publisher for a compilation of the cartoons. The majority of profits will go to benefit the families of victims of the 9-11 attacks on America. Artistic Licensing is also working on locating manufacturers to license the images for product. (Due to the difficulties charities had providing aid to the victims' families, licensing profits will now go to the Salvation Army, due to it's record of being one of the most efficient and effective charities of it's kind)
The project has received positive feedback worldwide including the Association of Uniformed New York City Firefighters. The site won the "Hot Site Award" for its contributions to the cause by the Texas City, Tx. Fire Department.
