Illustration Friday: Help



Doing something to HELP is always a good thing...


Katrina - it was the worst. I did what I could do to help. This is one
of the prints I sold to raise money for the Red Cross Hurricane Relief
Fund. I raised, I think, $650 for them. Not much, I know...but, it was
more than they had before, and at the very least I felt like I was doing
something positive to help, no matter how small, and maybe helped
inspire someone else to do their own thing to help, as well.

Good one Kathy! I think that'a awesome what you did for the Katrina survivors. Good for you :)
I gave money to the animal rescue efforts. So sad :(

I'm trying to upload my image and I keep getting bounced off...no error message or anything! Did you have trouble?

That's wonderful Kathy! You're such a good egg : ) Even if it were only a dollar, your heart is way in the right place! I'm not surprised this piece brought as much as it did, it's fantastic!

lolo, I emailed you!! :) Man, Katrina was just heartwrenching. I was so torn even with which organization to donate to - can you imagine that being a problem? In the end, I chose Red Cross, but there are so many great groups who helped and continue to help so much - for people and pets alike.


Mrs. B - thanks so much!! That is very kind of you!! I sure wish that 'blogger' tool wasn't acting so flaky right now - the larger image does not show up when you click on the graphic - don't know why - it should, and i like to show more detail than is available in this smaller graphic.

Thanks, Kathy...that was my problem exactly! I'm so hooked on this site, I think I'd have trouble sleeping if I couldn't be a part of it :)
(Drama Queen!) Keep up with your wonderful work!
Lolo
