UPDATE 8/14: Yippee! the white Graffiti goddess sold as well!! Thanks again everyone!!!
Great news!! The black Graffiti Goddess sold on the first day – THANK YOU!! Remember, all the funds (not just profits) are going straight to Anna, the artist – i’m even paying to ship these to the US.
Here’s the latest email i received 8/21 with an update:
(Click either picture to get to the Artful Home Hearts for Anna page.)
I’ve donated these two very special breast cancer goddesses for this worthy cause. These Graffiti goddess beads are lightly etched, wired onto sterling silver and the sterling chain is included. The auction begins @ 10am Central today and you can find the details here: https://www.artfulhome.com/heartsforanna
I have a friend going through a very similar situation but since we live in Canada, paying out of pocket for health care isn’t a major issue. I don’t know Anna at all but after reading her story, my heart went out to her… I can’t even imagine her stress levels right now and wanted to help out in any way I could.
If you can help out by purchasing one of the donations, please do.
