Bats for Charity

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 12, 2014, 1:57 PM

An Ongoing Effort Between Several Artists

See below the following Q/A for any print offers if you donate and the sizes of each. Every year, the list grows a little bigger, so there are many batty options for you! Alternatively, if you see another item anywhere in my gallery that is of interest instead, Note me here, and I'll get back to you with the sizes and donation amounts available for you!

See the bottom of this journal for links to other creative folks offering batty items for Bat World Sanctuary, as well as other bat-beneficial organizations around the world!

:bulletgreen::bulletyellow::bulletgreen: What do I receive in exchange for a donation?
A1: Besides the great feeling of doing something wonderful for the bats at the center, you get a few things.
1. The print (signed on the back)
2. A bat bookmark
3. An ink "Thank You" sketch
:bulletgreen:A2: If the cost of the prints is too much for your wallet, there is Option B. You may choose any artwork listed for $10 less, print unsigned and no extra goodies included.

:bulletgreen::bulletyellow::bulletgreen: Where do I send the money? 
A: Anyone interested will send the full amount to Bat World's Donation Page at Be sure to note in your donation what artwork the donation is for and the address you want it shipped to!

:bulletgreen::bulletyellow::bulletgreen: Why don't I send the money to you? 
A:I accept Paypal but have been charged a fee by them for money sent that isn't marked as a gift, was sent through a credit card, "e-check" or was given through eBay's payment system. That fee could have been given to Bat World instead of a fake bank's transaction fee, and every dime counts when you're a non-profit.

:bulletgreen::bulletyellow::bulletgreen: How much do you profit from this?
A: Nothing. After I receive my shipping receipt, Bat World will send me the amount that's just enough to cover my costs.

:bulletgreen::bulletyellow::bulletgreen: Why don't you auction it on eBay or other sites? 
A:To ensure that the charity receives the most money from the charity drive as possible. Most websites charge fees for listings, then a percentage, and this goes against the purpose of a donation. Until those sites offer a lower charity-drive fee, I see no reason to use them if there are smarter alternatives. Like just having you donate directly to the non-profit's website and have your payment make the most positive impact for the org'. :3 As an aside, my prints are done in a very cost-effective manner as well while still retaining their quality and ensuring that they ship safely.
