Hey folks,

Every hour of every day, one Canadian is newly diagnosed with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis. This includes a very important family member of mine. Their diet has become heavily limited, and though they follow it intensely there are still times where it isn’t enough and hospitalization or even invasive surgery is a real threat.

As it takes guts to find cures, I am getting gutsy by participating in Crohn’s and Colitis Canada’s Gutsy Walk on Sunday, June 3 in Collingwood.

Today, I’m asking you to get gutsy with me by making a donation to my personal fundraising page. Every person who donates $50 will get a custom magical girl/boy/nb avatar bust sketch (from my webcomic at xiicomic.com) from me! Those who donate $25 will receive a thank you card from my characters Willow, Georgia or Emma of their choice.

Everyone who donates (with their name public) will get an Honour Roll shoutout on xiicomic.com!

How will your generous gift make an impact? Your donation will be invested in world-class research, empowering patient programs, advocacy efforts and elevating awareness plus all those cool sketches!

When you donate, send a private message of your contact email so you can send me a photo of the person you want magicaled. (You can still remain anonymous on the page if you’d like.)


Together, we can move towards a future free of Crohn’s and colitis.

Thank you for showing you have the guts it takes to find cures.

Kristen Kiomall-Evans
