Several sellers have made generous contributions to the "Help the Gulf Coast" shop on Etsy. A quote from the shop's announcement...
"This is a collective etsy shop to help the gulf coast recover from the massive BP oil spill. Etsy sellers have donated their items so that 100% of the proceeds can be given to charity. We've set up a separate paypal account for this shop. 100% of the proceeds (after etsy & paypal fees) will be donated to OxFam America and the National Wildlife Federation. Both organizations have given us permission to fundraise on their behalf."
I have donated prints of my original painting, "Fairy Tale Forest" and 5 CDs of my album, "The World Beyond" to this shop. If they sell quickly, I will probably contribute more. Even though it seems small in the face of something so huge, it makes me happy to be a part of a larger effort that is working to make positive changes!
The print is 8.5" x 11" and comes sealed in a protective sleeve. I sign and date all of my prints on the back, and they are printed with a professional Epson printer on heavyweight paper.
The CD includes Oblivion, Firefly Rendezvous, Fairy Story, A Waltz in the Woods, Nocturnal Sonata, The Arrival, Midsummer Muse, Nereides, First Snow, Timeless, Majestic, Mirabella, The World Beyond, La Vie en Roslyn, and Fall. (53.3 minutes)
