Paws for Charity

I have been involved in a small way with a lovely venture called Paws for Charity! A small charity dedicated to raising funds for breast cancer research. They have just published a book called Art Book 2009 and it is chock full of illustrations, paintings and photographs of cats and dogs. The book has 37 images which were chosen from 99 submissions received from the US, UK, and Canada. You can take a look at the book here. On the Paws for Charity blog, you can see all the artists who have participated on the left sidebar.That's where I come in, my wee painting "All is Well" is in it:)

Art Book 2009 has been featured this week by the Blurb staff! Actually as of today, we are their number one best seller! Hooray! 100 percent of the proceeds will be going to the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade donated directly by Blurb, the publisher. Sara Harley has been spearheading this project and she is profiled here and you can visit her interesting blog, Dream Big. Thanks Sara for all the work you have done:)

So please, if you would like to contribute to the fight against breast cancer and enjoy a lovely book full of art, you can do so by purchasing it here I've ordered my copies:)

I'm here for the first time. I saw you icon and blog title over at Mille Fiori Favoriti and thought I'd pop over here. Surprise, surprise! You're in Canada, but also Nova Scotia! My mom is from Glace Bay. Where are you located? Coincidentally, my mom is Alice Elizabeth, but she goes by "Betty".

I would love it if you'd check out my blogs, Poetikat's Invisible Keepsakes and Poetikat's Blasts From the Past.

I'll be following you, for sure!
