If You Buy Original Art by CNN’s Jake Tapper, You’re Donating Right to Wounded Veterans

Donald Trump, take notes!

We’ve already been over how great Jake Tapper‘s Twitter account is, but his online presence is deeper than a few gifs and retweets. He’s using eBay to auction off comics that he’s drawn and then donating the money to wounded veterans.

100% of the proceeds from the sale of Tapper’s drawings of the cartoon character Dilbert will go to Homes for Our Troops. Better yet, this has been happening all week! Dilbert’s creator, Scott Adams addressed the fundraising effort in a blog post, saying this:

I wrote six daily comics for the week and Jake did the art … Jake suggested auctioning the framed original art on eBay to raise money for Homes for our Troops, and that sounded great to me. HFOT is an organization that builds mortgage-free, specially designed homes for disabled veterans.

This is the page where the drawings from Monday through today are available and you still have time, so go check them all out.
