Let go of even just a little bit to help them find their way!

What do you hold on to?
We all have room in our hearts to love the animals!

Anyone who might be interested in giving to a good cause? Art that is, if so read here, this is from my friend Kitty Miller:
My idea is this:
To have 45-60 artist send me 2 pages. The pages would be originals. You choose the subject matter just remember this is to raise money for charity so put some real love into it. The pages need to be 11 and 3/8 by 8 and 1/4". I would like to receive them by 3/30/15. I will then have them digitally scanned for the second half of this project. ( I will discuss that right after the original journal.)
I will then glue them into a Dylusion Creative Journal with 64 2 page spreads. That original journal will then be auctioned off online. You will all be able to bid on it and let your friends know to bid on it too. I will advertise it on Facebook and all over the place. The proceeds from the online auction will then be sent to ARF in all of the contributing artists names.
The digital scans will then be sent to my friend who owns a publishing company. He will print me 200 books as his contribution or gift to me and ARF to support this project. We will be able to include 45 of the entries. Each contributing artist will get a copy out of the 200 books he will print for me for free. I plan to give the remaining books to ARF for fundraising purposes.
The book and the journal will both need a cover and an end cover and my intention is to let all of the artists who have submitted their art to me for the journal vote on which entry we will use out of all of your entries for the front and back cover. The cover will be a digital scan of the pages that are being used inside the book with the title, and credits smile emoticon.
I will post each entry on here as they are received. The entries should be mailed to me with tracking info just to make sure it gets to me safely. As I know we all put a lot of love and time into our art as it is a piece of each of us.
I truly believe that art can heal the world and this is just my first idea on how to help. I was blessed to participate in HeArt the traveling art journal and it inspired me. I have set the deadline for 03/30/15.
