Despite the slow down of the media reports, many families are still struggling after Hurricane Sandy. Many lost their homes and have been jumping from hotel to hotel because they lost their homes. Some have been completely displaced and living with friends and family far away from where they call home.
One of my fellow New Jersey Digital Moms, Cindy Dudas, told me about this great fundraising event being organized by Hurricane Sandy Support – South Jersey Facebook page. They’re having a Sandy Treasures Art Auction to benefit Waves for Water’s Hurricane Sandy Relief Initiative. This fundraiser is going to be a huge help for many families.
Waves for Water provides clean water solutions worldwide through ongoing projects. You can read more about the amazing work they do on their website.
They’re looking for artists who would like to submit their artwork for the auction. The deadline is March 15, 2013.
There’s only one guideline – that the “artwork needs to incorporate a shore theme – shells, driftwood, sand, lighthouses, birds, ocean, etc. – something that will bring a nostalgic feeling of the Jersey shore”.
Go to their registration form for complete details. It’s a great cause and will help a lot of families.
If you’re an artist please help. If you’re not, please spread the word. Every little bit helps.
