"BOM Bear" - Aid for children in the Horn of Africa

    " BOM Bear", oil on linen on panel, 6x6 inches

100% of proceeds going to aid the children starving in the Horn of Africa

Daily Paintworks, has invited all its participating artists to join in a fundraising challenge which will aid the children of Africa presently suffering the ravages of famine.

From Daily Paintworks:

"The UN has said up to 400,000 children in the Horn of Africa could die without aid and up to 11 million people require food assistance.  In March of this year, over 1,500 artists and buyers stepped up and sold and bought fine art, through their Help Japan Challenge to help the people of Japan.  We hope to create the same opportunity to help the children starving in the Horn of Africa"

100% of the proceeds from the sale of this painting will be sent to aid an organization helping children in the Horn of Africa.  Shipping costs for the painting will be borne by the winning bidder.

My donation will be going to Oxfam Canada - in turn the Canadian Government will match the donation (by September 16, 2011).

I will provide a receipt to the buyer as proof of the donation, however, it is the artist who will receive the tax benefit.
