Cool. Very cool. I've made my donations but I would rather have done this.

I did make my phone calls tonight, though.

I would love to have two of the prints being offered, but I have a feeling these are going to go for thousands.

I have an aversion to straight out donating $ to political campaigns. They spend a small fortune on buying ads to badmouth each other that they could have spent on feeding the poor or community healthcare or whatever is their cause du jour. I can, however, see myself buying art for a cause. At least then I get something tangible out of it.

Speaking of tangible, a little package arrived from Kiwiland today.... thank you!

Wow, that was quick. And you're most welcome.
