365 Day Charity Challenge

Today, I am officially announcing the commencement of my new charity project!
 

What it is / What I am doing
Using my artwork for charity!
Each day, for 365 days, I will paint or draw a small original piece, post them online for sale at the end of each week, and donate ALL PROCEEDS to charity.

How you can get involved / Where to Purchase
Can you get involved? Yes, you can! In fact, please do!

Here are two big way you can help:

1) Spread the word! Share, repost, re-blog this post, the youtube video, the general information of this project, or where the paintings/drawings for this charity project can be purchased.

2) Purchase one of the artworks for the charity.

The paintings/drawings will be for sale in my Etsy store: Etsy – My Store

Pieces size 2.5 x 3.5 inches will be priced $7 (+$1 shipping), and pieces sixe 5 x 7 inches will be priced $15 (+1.50 shipping).

The Charity

I am currently researching and contacting charities that fight against human trafficking and modern day slavery. This is an issue that I am very passionate about bringing awareness to and fighting against. (For statistics and information on this issue, please visit this site: Polaris Project )

Since I have not decided the exact charity, I will not be placing the artworks up for sale until I do announce which charity sometime in September. In the meantime, I will post weekly the completed pieces and post them for viewing.

Check back in September for the announcement of the chosen charity!

Inspiration

I got this great idea from an artist I follow on deviantArt.com. She did this charity challenge last year – and didn’t miss a singe day! She raised over $2,000 for her charity. Check out her work here: http://secrets-of-the-pen.deviantart.com/

The Video

Please support me and get involved with this charity project!
Be sure to check back for more updates.

Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,  I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’”
Matthew 25:34-40
