I have been searching the internet in the last couple of days as I am interested in using some of my art for charity and came across this great blog by Kelly Light:
This blog was started to support and raise money for the animal victims of the Deep Water Horizon Gulf Oil Spill.
It also provides me and you with an opportunity to contribute and help with the cause; how? well "We may be too small as individuals to do some grand gesture- but together our small gestures can be grand.
This week's Illustration topic is "Ripple" and I ask you to consider creating your work as a small 2.5" x 3.5" sketchcard. The subject should pertain somehow to the Gulf - the oil spill - the oceans and the creatures that live in it and around it. The cards can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org as a jpeg along with your links and a few sentences about you (ie: where you live, etc).
These will be made available for a small donation of $10.00 to either The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies (http://www.imms.org/) or The International Bird Rescue Research Center (http://www.ibrrc.org/). I have no affiliation with them. Every penny will go. When the cards sell, We ask for a donation confirmation and you will be asked to sign the back with a thank you. Then mail them to the address you are sent. If we all do small acts together- we can cause a ripple- and it can grow. We can DO SOMETHING. Thank you, thank you for checking this out and thinking about it."
