Art Hearts for Haiti - Mea Culpa! Mea Culpa!

11:52 AM

It is with my sincerest apologies that I have not moved forward on this initiative before now. We are back on track and the derivative art has been created:

You should be able to click on the art to enlarge it and see the details. 

On the last two pieces of art, I have placed the words "Art Hearts for Haiti"....I am open to suggestions for alternative wording/no wording/additional wording on any/all art. Once the wording is added/changed, I will be opening up an ImageKind store later today to make the art available on T-Shirts and other items they have available. All funds (after tax, tag and title) will go to either the Red Cross Haiti fund or to Doctors Without Borders - your choice. (Please leave your choice in the comments.)

Last but not least, I am proposing an auction on eBay of any of the ACEOs available for purchase. I propose the auctions be started on Tuesday, April 6th, with a closing of Monday, April 12th with a minimum bid of $10.00. The auctions would be branded as "Art Hearts 4 Haiti" and plainly state this is to raise funds for Haiti's rebuilding efforts. If you have an Etsy store or other outlet and would like to offer the art through these outlets rather than eBay, please do so. As the art sales, send me a total of the profits and I will keep a running tally of the money raised in the effort.

I approached several other auction/retail venues and found most were overwhelmed or the ACEO art style was not conducive to their auction/fund raising efforts. I think it is best if each person handles their own auction/sale of the artwork as this spreads the workload around to all of us. I am open to other suggests and ideas!

Thank you for your kindness and patience!

  1. Wow--these all look great, Laure! I appreciate all the work you've done on all of this. I would definitely wear a T-shirt with any of these on it, and I'd help promote the efforts. I'm happy to make a donation, too. I don't have an etsy store, but I'll do my best to contribute some funds. Thanks for all your hard work!

  2. ps
    I realized I didn't state a preference for causes--I think the Red Cross comes to mind as an excellent way to get help to people who need it, but I'm also a huge proponent of Doctors without Borders, so I'll support either. Hate to be wishy-washy. They're both excellent.

  3. So cool, Laure! I'll definitely be checking out the ImageKind store. Great job!

  4. Oh Laure, how wonderful all your hard work and effort turned out. I would love to have a t-shirt of the circle one that my piece is in, and know some of my family would as well.

    Thank your for all your work.

  5. I'm fine with either Doctors without Borders or Red Cross.

    These combined images look FANTASTIC!! I can't wait to order 'something'. Thank you so much for your HOURS of work on this!! I'll be happy to auction off both of my ATC cards. Maybe we could all list them with some common words at the front of the title for our listings -- so someone could search and bring up all the available ones.

  6. all look great! Thanks for your hard work on them Laure! I think both groups would be good to donate the money to.

  7. I love them all. The hearts best and then the spiral and then the word Haiti. Wonderfully done. Lots of options, choices.
    Either charity if fine with me.
    Thanks for starting this, and for getting the end product together.Bravo to you.

  8. Excellent choice of charities. Either is great. I like what you did with the cards.

  9. They look great! Especially the designs on the black background. Really makes the artwork pop. Knitters have given over $1,000,000 to Doctors Without Borders -- it's a great organization. I always like to support the Red Cross, too. Great job, Laure, and all the participating artists!

  10. Looks great to me. I agree with everyone else on choices.

  11. Looking good! I'm happy with either choice too.

  12. My gosh, Laure. These are soooo absolutely cool. I think my favorites are the last two. I love the spiraling circle and the letters... On either a black t-shirt or white (or any color) them!

  13. I love all the designs and will definately buy a t-shirt or two. You've done an awesome job! I agree with the rest, both charities are good - I lean a little more towards Doctors without borders.

  14. I took another look at this tonight so I could get the link for Martha. It made me think of a new idea tonight -- I think I would buy an extra T-Shirt to use to make a pillow with... A heart shaped pillow would be fun with some sort of print on the back and maybe a ruffle - or maybe a black back and black ruffle. It could be fun.
