Those of you who know me personally or those of you who are regular readers of my blog know how much i love the Gulf. My family spends our summer vacation annually in Gulf Shores, Alabama. Remember this and this?
Living in Indiana, so many miles away from our beloved Gulf, i have felt helpless. We are bombarded with the horrible news coverage every day. So...i was inspired to create the illustration at the top of my post, of so many of the Gulf's residents. It is listed in my etsy shopfor $20. $15 of every sale will go to the National Wildlife Federation and the Gulf Oil Spill Restoration Fund that they have established. The remaining $5 covers shipping and the cost of printing and shipping it to you. I promise to keep you updated from time to time about how much we have raised.
So, if you've thought to yourself, "how can i help?"...this is it. If you've ever spent time on the Gulf of Mexico, if you have made memories there...and want to contribute to the efforts to save it, think about purchasing one of these prints.
From the bottom of my broken heart, thank you.
