First off, let me start with a huge, huge THANK YOU to everyone has pledged a heart or already sent a heart - this is what makes the blogging community such a great place! (Please click Hearts for Haiti for more information.)
PLEASE REPLACE THE HAITI BADGES ON YOUR BLOG!! I've added the word Art to this badge so that we are not confused with nor in conflict with another organization by the same name! (If you need a smaller size of the badge, please look at the bottom of the post.)
I've received some questions:
Can I send more than one heart? At this time, yes! If the response it so huge (I'm dreamin' big here!!) that I have to limit it to one, I'll let you know. At this time, send me what you've got!!
How do I know if it's hi-res? The size of the digital file should be larger than 500K to be used for printing and other applications. If it's larger than 500K, that's fine, send it! Remember to send it as a jpg.
Can you just snag a copy of the art from my blog? No, please email it to me. This is to cover both of us and to make sure I wind up with the right piece of art.
Where should I send my art? Please start sending your art to ArtHearts (at) gmail.com. Replace the (at) with the @ sign.
I am pulling together info on possible auction(s), I am looking to get a magazine to pick this up, and would love help and/or ideas on what else can be done to create awareness around this campaign so that we can raise more funds for Haiti's recovery. If you know of a contact in the publishing industry that might help, please contact them or send me the contact info and I will contact them.
If you have ideas beyond t-shirt designs, prints, and auction(s), I'd love to hear them! There's a lot of power in this community and if we put our heads together, we can do something really worthwhile with a lot of impact! So throw me your ideas - big or small! Don't want to leave them in the comments? Email me at the ArtHearts address above!
Again, THANK YOU for the outpouring of support and for your "pieces of heArt!!!"
