we are not all conscience, don't get me wrong, but art and charity seem to go together - tangible little tokens that people can take home in exchange for a donation.
dready has chosen though, not to wait to be asked, but, to actively think about things, or people that have a distinct meaning to us - things that involve children and the environment, both are our future.
above is a new york skyline that made up part of an original commission for a family whose charitable focus was children's tumor foundation; and so every skyline sold, no matter where or to whom, donates to the tumor foundation.
we're off next week to begin an adventure with The Jamaica Environmental Trust - JET, is an activist/action and lobbying group deeply interested in protecting the Jamaican environment … they have an uphill battle.
one of JET's projects is the saving of goat island, a fragile little slice of uninhabited ecosystem, so, last month dready set aside 3 pieces of art, with a possible 2 more to follow, all featuring goats, that would, when sold, no matter where, donate a portion of dollars to JET.
these are the continuing little gifts, simple, easy giving … if you're interested all you have to do is buy, the rest takes care of itself.
peace and love
