PLAYTIME! A Charity Art Show by The Autumn Society

The Autumn Society is proud to present it’s first charity art show! Toys bring children joy, spark imaginations and inspire creativity. Help others in the Philadelphia area so that less fortunate children can still have the joy of a new toy this holiday season. What was your first toy? Your favorite? What amazing adventures did you go on with your action figures? What distant planets did you explore with your spaceship? The Autumn Society will show you their visions of childhood favorites - somewhere between plastic molding & imagination.

There will be a donation box on site for new, unwrapped toys for our local Philadelphia Chapter Toys for Tots. And a portion of the proceeds will go to Toys for Tots nationally. Join us this December on First Friday for the art, the nostalgia, and the gift of charity.

The objectives of the U.S. Marine’s Toys for Tots are to help needy children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation's most valuable natural resources - our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.

Toys for Tots accepts new, unwrapped toys. If you forget to bring a donation, Brave New Worlds offers a variety of great toys. The donation box will be on site until mid December. Toys will go directly to the Philadelphia Chapter Toys for Tots. Our artists have individually selected 25%, 50% or 100% of their artwork sales to go to the Toys for Tots national charity. Brave New Worlds Comics will be generously donating 100% of their standard commission.

Hi everyone,
I really enjoyed being a part of The Autumn Society's Video Game Gore Show so I pitched an idea I had for December and got the green light. If you are the area please join us at Brave New Worlds of Old City on December's First Friday. Special thanks goes out to Peter Wonsowski for his awesome illustration on the flyer.
