Like many of you, I have felt helpless in the last couple of days in the wake of the devastating events that unfolded early morning on Sunday right here in our city. I keep asking myself, what can I do? Yesterday, I got a simple answer: purchase beautiful artwork from local businesses.
The City Beautiful
Clark Orr designed this beautiful print in order to help the families of those affected by the massacre here in our City Beautiful. He teamed up with Mama’s Sauce who will be letter-pressing these on paper that was donated by French Paper.
100% of the profits will be going to our local LGBTQ advocates The Center Orlando, who are currently facilitating grief counseling, food donations, and financial support to victims’ families who are in the midst of planning services. The City Beautiful print can be purchased for $20 through June 24th.
A local and national favorite, Rifle Paper Co. has a beautiful Orlando Heart print that is now available for purchase. I’m sure you’ve seen it on social media, but by purchasing this print through June 24th, all proceeds will directly benefit the victims and families of the June 12th tragedy. The art print without a frame can be purchased for $24.
It may seem like what you’re doing is small, but if everyone purchased just one (or even both!) of these prints, the proceeds that could benefit the victims’ families could make an enormous impact. Purchase your art prints by June 24th and share!
