We just saw on Facebook that Pinoy comic artist Vergil Espinosa aka “daVerge” had a kidney failure and needs help. His cousin Etey Buendia has posted the message below, and thanks to local pinoy writer Budjette Tan this message is spreading in the comics community very quickly. Read the message and stay tuned to Flipgeeks for more info on how to help out.
“Dear family and friends, please support me in my “Superhero Run for daVerge“…Vergil “daVerge” Espinosa is my cousin and is my Superhero. He is a comic book artist and is part of a group from different parts of the country (and some based overseas) who does collaboration work to revitalize the local Comics industry. They created Bayan Knights, a fictional superhero team from the Philippines. He is diagnosed w/ Kidney Failure due to arthritis in the knees & elbows and is undergoing dialysis 4 times a day. I am doing a fundraising project for my cousin, daVerge. Per Kilometer logged = $0.25 or P5 (donation)…i’ll post more details on how to send your donations.“
