If you recall an earlier post from the end of February, I donated a couple of paintings to the college art program as they were doing a fundraiser for the Somali Community Center that had recently been damaged due to flooding. The donated artwork was shown on the art center Facebook page for the past few weeks to create interest. The fundraiser was held at the college this past Thursday and primarily targeted faculty, students and staff as far as those who would be purchasing the donated artwork. I priced my pieces according to the population and received an awesome email at the end of the day Friday. Below is the email:
Your two paintings sold and raised $50 for the fundraiser. Several students and staff members really loved them, and one student saved up especially to buy them. Thank you so very much for supporting the fundraiser. In total, we raised over $1,000 for the Somali Community Center.
How cool is that!!!
