As many of you will have gathered by various polls and comments over the past few weeks, I have decided to launch a new project in aid of a number of causes.

New, but not original. Before I get started, I would like to thank A. Ferguson of LainyArt for launching the project which has inspired this, and for setting up a perfect template for doing it. Her 366 Project to benefit a safehouse is a wonderful cause, and I do encourage you to take a look at take part ...


Now, in the tradition she has begun, I would like to announce my own project now under the working title of Drawn to Help.

Each month, I will select a new cause around which to theme a set of 30 ACEOs (original art trading cards). Each day a new card will be available to see here, and to purchase in my Etsy shop, here: www.etsy.com/shop/ChandraValli

Every card will be priced at $9.98 USD, of which $7 will go to that month's charity (the remainder is to cover art supplies, Etsy and Paypal fees, and shipping materials). That's over $200 for each cause!

This month's cause is WaterAid, a group I first encountered in 2010, and whose work I am thoroughly impressed by. They provide impoverished communities with the most essential elements of life - clean water and sanitation. You can learn more about them here: www.wateraid.org

I have also set up an official donation page, so you can see how much has been donated www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser… . To keep it simple, I will donate on the first of each month, starting on June 1st. You're also welcome to donate there if you would like to! (Just remember that the art cards are over on the Etsy page.)

All right, here we go!...
