Dave never asked for help. But a few of us are offering it anyway. Want to help us help Dave Simons?

1) Donate cash directly to Dave via PayPal at davidlsimons@earthlink.net -- If you want to remain anonymous, PayPal Dave's art agent Bob Shaw and he will get the cash to Dave, every cent of it.

2) Donate art or signed books (with values of at least $10) for a series of on-going auctions designed to benefit Dave. Items should be sent to Dave’s art rep, Bob Shaw is establishing an eBay account solely to assist Dave (Help_Dave_Simons). Auctions will proceed as items come in; all money will go directly to Dave. Items should be sent to: Bob Shaw, PO Box 650, Derry, NH, 03038 - USA.

3) Contact Dave and commission a drawing. This keeps Dave active and you'll get a nice piece of art! Dave is swamped with commissions but is still taking on more. With this in mind I'd ask people to be patient as Dave gets to them all - rest assured that he will be able to complete all commissions put before him, so don't hesitate to ask.

4) Spread this message on blogs and message boards.

For more information, contact Daniel Best or Bob Shaw.

Clifford Meth has kindly offered to send cash via the sales of his own books. You can find details on this offer at his blog: If you want any of his books, send him a check payable to DAVE SIMONS for the price of the book. Cliff will cover the shipping.

Dave is somewhat surprised at the level of support he has been given and has expressed a desire to thank everyone who has made contact, donated immediately and arranged commissions with him.

Let’s all help Dave, a great fellow and artist who gives much and asks for little.

Good, I saw these on Ebay and was just about to write you to see if you were the one who started it. I'll be bidding!
