A Simple Request

Hi,
  Today it's just a simple request.

  From today through July 4 I will be donating 100% of profits from the sale of my artwork on Fine Art America to the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Equal Justice Initiative, equally divided. Both SPLC and EJI* are well established, worthy organizations. 

  I hope you will consider buying something to support this effort. The purchase of even a single greeting card will send $1 their way.  Of course a 60" print will contribute even more but I'm not greedy so buy what you will; support what you can. 

  Of course you can always send them money directly and I encourage you to do so. I'm merely offering an incentive to make the effort. 

  If you find that you don't like any of my work then buy a card you don't like and send it to someone you dislike. A worthy organization will be grateful. Someone you dislike may also be grateful. 

  How this works:  On the 15th of each month Fine Art America sends me a payment for sales from the previous month, i.e. my July 15th payment will be for sales from May 15th to June 15th. So, donations to the above organizations will occur on July 15 and August 15.  On those dates I will post whatever donations I've received. 

  I would appreciate it if after reading this you send it off to others who may wish to contribute.  If you think this is a bit wacko then send it to someone who you think is a bit wacko, they'll understand.

  Thank you for considering this offer.

  Stay well,
        Joe
