Campaign to watch: Arts, crafts and photographs.
We spotted this campaign from photographer Allison Jean out of Brownwood, Texas. On Monday, she auctioned off art, crafts and photographs to raise funds for water projects. She exceeded her $1,000 goal and raised about $1,600 — all for clean water!
In Allison’s words…
After doing our show, “A Collaboration of Differences” last semester I started dreaming about the possibilities of joining the artists I know for a cause. The work of charity: water has always resonated with me. Water should never be a commodity… it should never be something the privileged have access to and the poor don’t. If I believe that people have a right to life, then I believe they have a right to clean water. I also love how charity: water shows the connections between water and other facets of life like health and education.
Take a look at some of the auctioned pieces, donated by artist friends:
Thanks to Allison and friends for using your creativity to change lives.
