Artists and Charities

To all our Artists:
We have been supporting two charities now for 10 years. During that time we are so happy to report that we have given them each approximately $5,000. We hope that this year we will be able to continue supporting them with 20% of the profits from the sale of YOUR art! So you should also be happy that you have made a difference in a lot of children's lives!

We are all connected. We all rise together. Carry on!
