Open Your Heart [EC]

Madonna Early on Madonna involved herself in charities, helping raise money for the fight against AIDS among other causes. This October 15th, Blog Action Day will raise awareness and hopefully funds for humanity's social dilemma of poverty. You can join in! Go to their site and sign up to participate. Oprah just re-ran her special with Anderson Cooper about the hidden population living in terrible poverty, so maybe she's going to be involved too!

About a week ago I was impressed by an ad from the Ad Council. Don't Almost Give is sponsored by them, providing connections to other organizations that help humanity. There are opportunities to get involved physically and financially. These are the types of charities I was thinking of when I decided to start my Elliott Collection [EC]. My goal is to get you involved or to encourage your continued support of your favorite charity.

All posts labelled [EC] are related to a painting that you can buy for $175 with $100 of that going directly to a charity of your choice in your name. My brilliant dad suggested I set it up thusly: you send me 2 checks, one for $75 to me and one for $100 to the charity. I'll forward the charity check to them and you'll get all the membership information from them. Then you'll have a great piece of art that you relate to musically and which becomes a connection to help humanity.

You're making my art more special! You're helping me achieve my goal with my art: connecting and communicating with people passionate about creativity and culture.

Listen. Understand. Love.

Peace.
