What actually caught my eye last week was an article in The Leaky Cauldron reporting that a number of actors from the Harry Potter films had already donated doodles for the auction.
There are a number of ways to get involved, either as a group or individual. You can have a local event, bid on celebrity doodles or "Do a Doodle - Donate a Pound" for the National Doodle Day Competition. Prizes will be awarded to the winners in 6 different categories.
The National Doodle Day website also has a section that goes into a fascinating explanation and analysis of The Meanings of Doodles.

In the US there is a National Doodle Day also know as Doodle 4 NF. NF stands for Neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder that can be fatal. This annual fundraiser for the Neurofibromatosis Network collects celebrity doodles all-year long and conducts an 10-day auction. This year it begins on May 8, 2014 and ends on May 14.
