Turkeys and Tutus for TBI

Today we're featuring a very special episode of Holly's Blog.

A few months ago I was contacted by Elizabeth Reininger, who sells these awesome pre-made and custom-made tutus on Etsy. She is organizing a virtual run for Zach, a young man with a Traumatic Brain Injury. 100% of the proceeds will go towards a Duet Bike for Zach so he can ride with his mom. Elizabeth and Zach are both superhero fans.

(Check out Facebook and Etsy for more details and how to donate)

So what we have here is a combination of superheroes, tutus and a fundraiser.

What it means for yours truly is that I am extremely proud and honored to contribute artwork to be used as prizes for participants in the virtual run. And it just so happened that I drew a couple new tutu-heroes at Boston Comic Con, just before getting an email from Elizabeth:

Along with a selection of heroes in all their graceful and balletic glory, I included a print just for Zach of his favorite superhero:
The idea that my artwork might be of real benefit to someone is quite rewarding and fills me with warm fuzzies. 

Big thanks to Elizabeth for inviting me to be a part of this fundraiser and best of luck to Zach who is the real superhero here!

...And for anyone who has a comic convention to go to and hasn't a thing to wear, Elizabeth does plenty of superhero-inspired tutus along with the custom ones and SPARKLY LIGHTS!!!


  1. Thank you so much!! This is so perfect. I can't wait to see the prints!!

  2. You have made my heart smile. To be blessed by people who truly love what they do. There are so many to thank for what you have done and continue to do for not just Zach but to others who you bless. God sees what you do and will bless you for all you do. God's love and ours
