“A small sketch – A small donation – Each small act helps. Together we can cause a ripple in the oil soaked waters in the Gulf.”
In our nation today, many are concerned about the oil spill that is still a deep issue with continuous effects. Much to my amazement and satisfaction, a blog has been created that serves a few purposes. Ripple is a blog that is essentially selling artists renditions of the effects the oil spill is causing. Potential donors can view the sketchcards and then donate $10 per card, the proceeds of which go to The Institute of Marine Mammal Studies and the International Bird Rescue Research Center. What a brilliant idea! Not only is money being raised to help the animal victims of this environmental disaster, but artists’ work is being recognized and donors can use the artwork to continually remember our effect on the environment.
