This is just the beginning. We know there are many deserving causes and in time we intend to increase our outreach. Until then, we needed a place to start and these charities have meaning to us in our journey.
We encourage you to visit each site and learn more about each cause. We do not have any official affiliation or endorsement from any of these organizations and it is our choice to support them in any way we can. However, we do vet each charity via Charity Navigator, nationally recognized for its reliable and unbiased evaluations. Twenty (20%) percent of each print sale goes to your choice of charity. We also must note that your purchase donation is not tax deductible. We hope your support is driven by the passion to help, to tell a story and to enjoy the arts.
We do believe there will be some “cosmic write-off and return” as your good deed will come back to you in a positive way not only from the financial support you give to the causes, but some reward for doing the right thing - so keep your eyes open!
