"Brush Out Breast Cancer"
Well here I go again!
I've registered with The Weekend to End Breast Cancer which is a two-day, 60-kilometre walk through the neighbourhoods of Toronto.
Breast Cancer has affected me both through family and a close friend -so I have that desire to do 'my part'.
So...now it's all about fundraising,training walks, more fundraising....did I mention fundraising?
To participate in the Walk, the minimum that needs to be raised is $2000, but I hope to surpass that through my art!
Times are tough that's for sure, but I think
my fundraiser called "Brush Out Breast Cancer" will enable me to reach my goal and surpass it.
I'll be asking boutiques,galleries,restaurants and whomever else that will listen, that I'll do a painting 'live' on the premises - and while I work,people can donate and watch as I bring a canvas to life.
The finished piece then may be bought by the
business, auctioned off, leased or bought by a customer with all the proceeds going to my fundraiser.
Tax receipts for donations of $20 or more are issued.
Art and raising money to conquer Breast Cancer- how can you go wrong----well, you can't!
If you have any suggestions,ideas or thoughts as to businesses that may be up for this -let me know, there's alot of work to do between now and the end of August -so any help is greatly appreciated!
If you would like to donate here's the link or you can send me an email...
