Doodle Day

Did you know that September 22 is National Doodle Day? What is Doodle Day, you ask? Here in the UK, celebrity doodles are auctioned off on eBay to raise money for the charity Epilepsy Action, which helps those affected by epilepsy. It’s drawing for a good cause! We thought we’d share some of our favorite doodles from the auction.
