The #get20give100 campaign has come to a close. All totaled we raised $3035.00 through the sales of my artwork. Fucking-A Awesome!
I’ll be making the donations this weekend. That’s $303.50 per org – not bad at all. I’ll round that up to $305.
More on this in the coming week – once again, thanks to everyone that purchased a piece in February. The effort doesn’t stop here though; I’ll keep donating at least 30% of all sales to orgs fighting to protect clean water and our environment. Now more than ever we need to do what we can!
If you’re in the TC’s or surrounding area you have some hot jams to choose from this month. F3T is rolling through River Falls, WI and Minneapolis this week. Lund’s, Bob Mitchell’s and Mend are all getting down and helping out with the festivities…FAM! Trout on Tap goes off on Thursday to get things rolling (see above). Later in the month, the Great Waters Fly Fishing Expo runs the 17th – 19th at some new digs in the city proper. It’s looking like a tight pre-season for fishy folk.
One week left to get 20% off my art. One week left to have 100% of that sale go to organizations fighting to protect clean water and our environment. Through these sales so far, we’ve raised almost $3000 for 10 different orgs!
Since starting the #get20give100 campaign on February 1st, things haven’t gotten any better for environmental protections here in the U.S. Let’s be honest – we may be facing some of the greatest threats we’ve ever seen.
If you are in the market for art, or have been eyeing up a particular piece for while, then get that 20% off and do some good in the process.
Get on it, shop here, and make sure to use the code: GET20GIVE100
At the beginning of March, I will tally the total and announce the the total donations. I will make said donations (divided equally) to the 10 orgs, and provide evidence of each respective donation the best I can.
Also, after this campaign I will still donate 30% for every sale to the 10 orgs – I’m committed to this effort for the long run.
Thanks to everyone that picked up a piece, and thanks to everyone for their continued support, and thanks for supporting the orgs below!
I’ve decided to step things up a notch. I need to do more. We need to do more. So, I’m going to start with where I can…
Starting Feb. 1st, 2017 all of my work will be 20% off…and 100% of the revenue made will be donated to organizations that fight for environmental causes I believe in. The goal here is to raise as much money as I can through my art, while giving you, the patron, a decent discount (incentive) to help me raise that money. I feel like it’s a win-win ya know?
Work is available on my Etsy shop. Use this coupon which will be valid from Feb 1st, 2017 8am – Feb 28th, 2017 midnight:
100% – I’ll even include money I make through commissions, licensing fees, etc – all of it is going to 10 organizations.
I will compile the total money raised on March 1st. I will divide the total amount 10 ways evenly to the 10 organizations listed below. I will also share a list of the works sold and the buyers as a way to give them a high five/thanks for helping to raise some needed funds. I will also share receipts of the donations, because I want to be transparent about the campaign and share the info.
These are the organizations that could benefit from buying some of my work!
First off, thank you for the support and interest in 2016 and every year prior; knowing that there are people out in the world that dig what I’m doing motivates me and helps keep the fire burning. Cheers.
Second, a special thank you to a few companies and organizations for including me in their 2016 activities and output.
I used to sell my work. I made some money; sometimes good, sometimes just enough to cover my overhead costs. When I started creating work in earnest about 4 years ago after a small hiatus of serious production, the thought of actively pursuing sales didn’t interest me. I tried selling prints through a third party, and although the service and quality was great, I never felt 100% committed to the endeavor…so I stopped. I was content to focus on the work itself and share it with other via social media and my website.
