If you haven't heard about it already, Love+Water Designs is a great way to bring artists and charities together. I can't really say it much better than L+W founder, Alexis Fedor:
"Love+Water designs is an online community that creates Wearable Philanthropy by connecting artists with charities through T-Shirt Design Projects. We invite artists to submit the designs in the name of a charity, have our community vote on the ones they like the best, print those designs on a limited edition t-shirt, award the artist a cash prize and donate up to 50% of the profits back to the charities. You can choose a charity on our site to match with a design you have, or you can submit a design for our monthly Featured Charity! Join us, we can't wait to see your work! Questions? Please email us! firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll get right back to you!"
Love+Water is a great way to give back to the community, even if you aren't part of it. It's also a great way to get your work on a t-shirt! This month's featured charity, ForByFor, is art for the people, by the people, for the greater good. ForByFor exhibitions raise money and awareness for charitable organizations working to bring life back to forgotten people and places. Each exhibition presents affordable art by emerging talents to a new audience of art collectors looking beyond the bottom line for art that inspires and heals not only themselves but the global community. Help us prove that art can be an effective tool for social change.
