The Oatmeal Creator Shares Photos Of Charity Money
Matthew Inman is best known for being the comic artist behind the web comic The Oatmeal. Inman took photos of the $211,223.04 in cash that his supporters raised for charity. About one year earlier, Inman wrote a blog post bashing on FunnyJunk for stealing his comics and not linking back to his website.
It took about one year for FunnyJunk to react and they asked for $20,000 in defamation damages. FunnyJunk’s lawyer and media attorney Charles Carreon became a target of Inman’s comics. Inman decided that he would rather raise $20,000 for charity, take a photo of the money, and mail it to Carreon along with a drawing.
Instead of raising $20,000, he was able to raise over $200,000. Above and below are a couple of photos that Inman was able to raise.
