just monkeying around…

…aka Doodling with a purpose. It sounds a bit weird that such seemingly mindless activity as doodling might benefit some kind of important charitable cause (well, besides the two Doodle Days (one here and one in England) we already discussed on this blog). But it’s true! Etsy seller Cloudery is on a mission to support the charity First Book. With each sale of every drawing or print, a donation of at least two new books is made to children from low-income families, providing them the opportunity to read and own their first new books.

How cool is that? Not to mention that Cloudery’s inky doodles are all one-of-a-kind, and quite frankly gorgeous? See for yourself:
