Charity Art Auction for Hurricane Sandy Relief

As many of you have heard, the New York 
Tri-state area suffered much damage and destruction as a result of Hurricane Sandy. which has taken the lives of over 106 people in the US to date.  Relief efforts can not be provided soon enough or with as much supplies as necessary. As a result  The Altered Page created an auction where bundles have been created to include combinations of signed art books, original artworks and art classes whose proceeds will go directly to 

 I am donating one of my original 6"X6" mixed media collages titled: 
"What to Listen For" 

     To bid on my artwork included in a new bundle, you need to email Seth Apter from The Altered Page at shap97@gmail.com with your bid. He will update the bidding total and post the bids as quickly as he can. The bidding will start at $25.00 for each created  bundle but the hope is that they will go much higher. Bidding ends 11:59PM EST on Sunday November 11. The winning bidder can either make their donation directly to the charity via credit card or though Seth via check or  paypal.  100% of the proceeds will benefit The Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City  providing  water, food, and hygiene supplies as well as long term relief and restoration efforts.

Extending my deepest sympathies and prayers to all those who directly or indirectly  have been affected by the storm. 
Sending peace,
And best wishes 
To all who can assist in some way.

Love this piece that you have created for Seth's auction, Jill! Incredible variety and detail in the images used, and lots of healing to be found in the words! Looks like, together, the 10 auctions have already raised over $2,000, for the cause!
