MAD DON MARTIN-needs help

https://13thdimension.com/13-cartoons-a-don-martin-salute/

                          LET ME STEAL YOUR ART WORK and YOUR NAME 

              Don Martin was a world famous cartoonist who died in 2000.  His work
 appeared in MAD and CRACKED magazines and in pocketbooks. He had millions
 of fans of all ages and there are hundreds of internet sites discussing his art and
 his funny sounds.  Click on the one appearing above for an interesting and
 illustrated look at his life and work. 
 
            He made other people rich.  But he was only rich in talent.  I am his widow 
  living on social security, and I am trying to keep MAD and DC Comics, who are
 owned by AT&T, from stealing his name, trademark and work.  How are they
 doing this and why should anyone care?  Every creative person strives for
 recognition.  It represents their talent.  Whether a writer, painter, musician,
 poet, cartoonist, dancer, and so on, they all appreciate recognition.  Everyone
 knows someone like this.  This person may be someone very close or even
 yourself. 

            If AT&T wins the case I have been fighting all other creative people can
  just as easily lose control over their names and work too.  My opponents have
 been using Don's name on books and magazines all over the world as if it is
 their property.   They have been putting his name on work he did not create
 That is what I am fighting.  I have done the best I can but will soon need the
 help of real lawyers. And big companies fight hard and dirty.  Law is a
 complicated animal and I do not know enough to keep on fighting without
 legal help. But I will go on doing the best I can. 

                   If Don loses his name and work countless others will also
 Please don't  let this happen. The funds are needed now and through the
 next eight to ten months months.  I know many people do not like lawyers
 but their experience  and training helps us.  I have no way of knowing
how much or how little it will cost, but anything you send to this account
                    https://GoFundMe.com/artists-rights-don-martin
 big or small, will be appreciated.  

              Funds  that are not needed will be contributed to Doctors without
 Borders or other worthy charities
.    You will be helping Don's heritage
 and countless other creative people who can just as easily  lose control
 over their work and names.  Please tell others.  I know I can,  should, and 
will win with your help.    REMEMBER---ALL CREATIVE PEOPLE WILL
WIN, WHEN I WIN.  Don't let the big companies own the arts...

Thank you for your help
