Art Attack: Doodling For a Cause!

United Kingdom :When you doodle for a cause, then it is art right from the heart! UK doodlers are being enticed to rub shoulders with the Who's Who clan, to name a few- Rula Lenska, Ricky Gervais, and Helen Mirren, and contribute their mite for the third National Doodle Day on March 3.

This event is a fund raiser for the Epilepsy Action and The Neurofibromatosis Association, and is growing popular each year, attracting wide participation. Scribblers, can use this forum to scribble seriously to assorted themes ranging from Puzzles and portraits, to pets and passion. Keen doodlers are required to send in their doodles to a Freepost address at just £1 per entry. Actor and author Maureen Lip man, the Doodle Day patron, will preside as the judge and certificates will be awarded among different age categories. Winners' work will find a place in the hall of fame chapter on the National doodle day website.

Paul Tranter, fundraising manager of Epilepsy Action, said: "Since Doodle Day started in 2004 people have doodled everything and anything from puzzles, patterns and portraits to pets, passions and places. All you have to do is let your imagination take over and enjoy yourself! "In the last two years doodling has raised £80,000 to help support people with epilepsy and neurofibromatosis. And we have had such a good response so far to this year's event that it looks as if it is going to be even bigger and better."
