Donate your art to help animals????

Hey there -

Every few months a charity (different ones – some local – some national – all American) contacts me for donations to sell at their silent auction fund raisers. Right now it is the SPCA of the Triad in North Carolina ( . The contact person is Misty Cope at

You can email her or call her at 336-605-0040 and inquire as to where to send any items you want to donate to the silent auction & how to get tax credit for it etc.
I typically donate 3 or 4 photographs & include a handful of business cards to both attend the print when given to the winning bidder & to put on the table at the auction for passers by to grab. You could donate a collection of 6 greeting cards, a calendar, a t-shirt – even framed prints. Whatever you feel comfortable with. It is a great opportunity to get news eyes on your art AND help abandoned & abused animals. I am quite certain that the art not necessarily be pet-themed – though the nature of the event assures a crowd that will respond to that kind of art.

Also – most of the pet groups decline journal entries so if you could help spread the word – that would be great!
