Misfortune doesn’t always strike the most talented or driven, so it’s often the case that people with very little means of helping themselves have to work their way out of tricky situations. But! This is another gap we’re hoping to bridge, with our Tumblrpon Help Exchange Artist Partnerships.
What’s this you say? Basically, say you have some money. You want to help someone out. But you also want some art done. Before, you’d have to decide! Treat yourself, or help out someone who really needs it? With THE, you can do both! Get some art done and lend a helping hand at the same time.
Our list of artist partners (which, if you’re interested, you can ask to be added to at any time) donate a portion of their commission proceeds to THE listers! The amounts and logistics of donation (who chooses who gets the money, etc.) vary depending on the artist, but at least some of your art money will go to helping people! The current artist list includes:
Talk to us if you’re interested in this, and pass it on to anyone who you think might be! You don’t have to donate half your income - if you’re a reasonably successful commission artist that’s financially stable, just a little bit will help!
Today’s list queued for next post.
