Art has the power to evoke compassion and connect people’s hearts with charitable causes that are worth supporting. Although created with the best intentions, art donations are often ad-hoc, one-off or not strategic enough and therefore less beneficial than they could be for all parties involved—the artists, the charities and the beneficiaries.
As an artist, I therefore decided to take the following art pledge:
“Every year I pledge to donate a minimum of two art pieces to raise funds for wildlife or animal-related causes.
Charities that do not focus on these causes can, unfortunately, not be supported.
My art pledge started in July 2018 . Since then I donated 0 art pieces and helped to raise 0 $ for the following charity/ies: ______________ (name of charity). Profits went ___% to the charities.”
