Well another print of my gannets got bought by someone in Australia! I'll have to print that one up today and get to the post office again. My listing is number 295 if you want to have a look.
I hope the charities are making lots of money off of this donated art! Please consider donating some yourself! You upload it to upload it to http://ripplesketches.blogspot.com/, she posts it on http://ripplesketches.blogspot.com/. People make a donation to either of these two charities, she emails you their address, and you send out your sketch. Can be anything on the topic.
"The $10.00 is a donation to help the animal victims of the Deep Water Horizon Gulf Oil Spill. Every penny is donated. The two Non-Profits that are benefitting are The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies and The International Bird Rescue Research Center."
But what are they going to do with all the animals they are saving? They can't just release them back into the wild or they will get soaked in the oil again. Build a humongous new sea world for turtles and birds? And keep them there how long, before it's safe to release them back into the wild? How long will it take until the fish are safe for the birds and turtles to eat? How long until there are some fish and microbes, and right down the food chain, to sustain life in the Gulf? So many questions I would like to ask the experts. So sad at this devastation.
