Brena Benoir of Preferred Family Healthcare made an announcement today at the Nonprofit Commons Meeting about the month-long ART HOUSE fundraiser for ARTC developed and designed by artist Winter Nightfire. We will have a launch party on Saturday, January 12 at 12:00 PM SLT with DJ Lynda Ultsch! I contributed my “create crayons” and one of my computer assemblages for this excellent fundraising event. Ozma Mailbu checked out my art while I was there!

About ARTC (Achieving Recovery Through Creativity) and ART HOUSE:
ARTC is an amazing Real Life program run by Second Life residents which helps children with substance abuse issues use creativity to learn to express themselves in positive ways, building a foundation for a successful life free of drugs and alcohol. ARTC has used the virtual world to showcase the kids’ Real Life artwork, which deals with some very serious topics. You can read more about the program here: http://www.pfh.org/artc/.
ART HOUSE and its unique contents can all be yours if you are one of 3 winners of the drawing! To enter, click on the art supplies next to the stage and make a 250L donation to ARTC, for which you will receive a special gift of art or decor for your home or favorite place in SL. You may enter as many times as you wish — your chances get better with each donation and the gift will be different the first 5 times you enter!
Have a stroll through the house and reference the list of contributors and LMs you get when you arrive to find out where to get more art and housewares by these incredibly talented top creators of Second Life: Gwen Carrilon, Trill Zapatero, Luciella Lutrova, Fuschia Nightfire, Nina Camplin, Aruba De Cuir, Nathan Babcock, Samara Furse-Barzane, Rik Zwiers, Alba2 Rossini, Pitsch Parx (For UrbanizeD), Zinnia Zauber, Cat Boccacio, Coughran Mayo, Milly Sharple, Dixmix Source, Eynlight, Winter Nightfire.
The Lindens raised through this event will be turned into dollars and used to buy art supplies for the kids of ARTC, whose activities are also funded by Preferred Family Healthcare, a nonprofit organization in Missouri, USA. The premise is that anyone may enter to win the house and decor for a 250L donation to the program. When the donation is made, the entrant receives a gift of equivalent value, and his or her name will be put on a RL list kept by me and administrators of ARTC. From this list, the administrators (hopefully with help from some of the ARTC kids) will draw 3 names of entrants who win the whole home and its contents. The drawing will be videotaped and posted on YouTube so that everyone can see it is fair, legitimate, and fun.
Please send your friends to see this awesome collaboration on behalf of the kids of ARTC! There are lots of ways to take part in this month-long event: Gift tickets can be purchased (you can enter your friends too!), and you can come to the ART HOUSE and donate amounts other than 250, as well. Every Linden Dollar helps and thank you for your support!
