Child Poverty Action Group is auctioning on Trade Me a set of three Tom Scott cartoons, originally drawn for the Inside Child Poverty documentary shown on TV3 last year just before the election.   View the auction and make your bid please click here

The brilliant cartoons cover a turbulent time in New Zealand’s history and, in a nutshell, sum up the neo-liberal reforms of the 80’s and 90’s.   The cartoons are a prize for collectors and anyone who lived through New Zealand’s economic revolution.  They feature fabulous caricatures of Robert Muldoon, Roger Douglas and Ruth Richardson.  View the doco clip the cartoons feature in here

What a prize these cartoons are for collectors - they could be yours!

Tom Scott has kindly donated these cartoons to Child Poverty Action Group to help raise funds towards its 2012 Appeal: A fair go for all Kiwi Kids.   Tom with sign each cartoon once the auction has been won, personalising them for the lucky winner.

Help CPAG continue to fight for the rights of New Zealand’s poorest children.  One in five children in poverty cannot be our future.  To make a donation directly to the Appeal, please click here.

Let all your family, friends, work colleagues and wider networks know too!
