My work will be included in an online art auction called "Create for Syria." All funds from sales of the work will go to support of Syrian refugees. Please consider purchasing an artwork for this important cause! We will donate funds to the International Rescue Committee.
A few weeks back a little Syrian boy sat in an ambulance seat staring into our eyes through the window of Social Media. He was covered in blood, dust, and debris. He was alone. He was confused. He was small and helpless. At first we reacted. Wanting to hold tightly to that little boy and whisper in his ear that everything will be okay. The hollow shallow feeling of doing nothing no longer felt good in our hearts. We have decided to take action; by creating.
There are many more like the boy in the ambulance still in need of help. We have come together, and hope you will join us too, to purchase art made by professional working artists to benefit the refugees in need. All proceeds going to the International Rescue Committee (IRC) where money will go to those working on the ground to supply food, shelter, school supplies and all the other day to day needs of refugees.
On September 22nd we are going to hold an online auction with 100% of proceeds going to the International Rescue Committee where money will go to those working on the ground to supply food, shelter, school supplies and all the other day to day needs of refugees. Artist throughout California and western states are taking part. Please follow this page for more news as we get closer. Thank you!
