The monster tornado that hit Oklahoma on May 19th has left behind terrible destruction and many people in need. This challenge is a fundraising auction to raise money to help our friends, family, and neighbors, near and far, affected by this and other tornados in Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, Missouri, and nearby states.
In our first DPW Fundraiser Challenge
in March of 2011 hundreds of fine artists and buyers came together to help the people of Japan after the devastating tsunami and raised almost $30,000. In October of 2012, over $12,000 was raised to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy. We hope again to witness the same outpouring of generosity and love.
You do not need to be a member of DPW to submit an entry - all artists are welcome!
Each artist who participates in this fundraiser agrees to donate 100% of the proceeds of their sale, minus their shipping costs, to an aid organization of their choice, such as the American Red Cross
- or to a family member or friend in need because of the storm. Please indicate in your entry's description, when submitting, to which organization or to whom you will be donating.
There are no requirements or restrictions on what you can submit to the challenge, except that it be original, natural media, 2-D art created by you.
While DPW manages the fundraiser and the auctions, the actual purchase is directly between the artist and the buyer, with the artist making the donation.
