A Good Cause

Y'all, I got an email from a friend and artist this weekend. He's a good friend from college. When he ran for student body something or other, I was his campaign manager. The highlight of the campaign was his sidewalk chalk art. And the light up yoyos. Yeah - the yoyos were my favorite. I'm pasting most of his email here, as I thought it might interest some of you (no yoyos - sorry):

The American Cancer Society is having a holiday arts and crafts show next Saturday, November 1st. ... I will participate with almost 20 other arts and crafts persons, and selling my art, greeting cards and prints (I am also printing eight of my past Christmas card designs to sell). ACS is asking that we donate at least 10 percent of our sales revenue, so I'm going to donate 20 percent.

If you can't make it to the show but are interested in purchasing Christmas cards, please go here.

I will donate 20 percent of the sales of these cards to ACS (even after the show on Nov. 1st) through Christmas 2008.

These cards are similar to my other greeting cards, but a little larger with a folded size of 4.5" x 6". Each is handmade with original signature on the back and clear packaging. Interior is blank and white envelope is included with every card. Prices are $4 each, or any six for $20.

Dave does phenomenal work. I've enjoyed and saved his handmade cards every year. Being the campaign manager has its perks, you know. While you're at his site, check out his Route 66 art. I loves it, too. Dave lives in Parker, CO, so if any of you near there are interested in viewing his work in person, email me and I'll send you the info.

Until I write again ...
