Charitable Art Prints

Daniel’s parents are missionaries, so he grew up in Zaire and Kenya (by the way, don’t ask him if he speaks “African” or if he rode an elephant to school—he gets mad). He saw firsthand the constant struggle many Africans faced just to acquire basic necessities like food and clean water. When he shares his observations of what life in Africa is like for many people, I feel so guilty for having a refrigerator filled with food and a faucet that gushes out clean water.

I want Wit & Whistle to be the kind of business that makes a difference in the world, however small that difference may be. A good friend of ours works for ICDI, a non-profit organization that does all sorts of great things in the Central African Republic like drilling wells to provide clean water, assisting with agricultural development to alleviate malnutrition, and more.

So, here’s my plan. I added two new art prints to the shop. For every Germinate print sold I will donate $10 to ICDI’s agricultural program, and for every Droplet print sold I will donate $10 to ICDI’s water program.

    That’s a great idea! Let’s hope more people think about how they can make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate. :)

    I love the prints and how you linked the print to the need that will be met. Wonderful. The ‘Droplet’ is particularly fetching to me and I am going to have to buy one for my… bathroom. :)

    This is a really lovely thing you’re doing, I think I may have to look into being more charitable with the profits I make from my shop, it’s nice to think you’re making a difference – however big or small it may be :-)

    Gorgeous prints!

I love your comments more than I love chocolate (almost).
