The fine folks over at Poster Collective are up to the exact opposite of no good. They are working with a group called Art V Cancer to help raise money to fight a disease that knows no borders, does not discriminate against race and really just sucks in general. Here is what they had to say and how you can participate.
“Running a website means we get the opportunity to entertain/inspire, occasionally inform and at the very least, alleviate the boredom of our fellow humanoids. Perhaps most importantly, it means that from time to time, we get to tell you about how you can do some good in the world.
In this case, it could not possibly get easier:
Step 1: Buy prints.
Step 2: Cure cancer.
Step 3: Consume red velvet waffles til you explode with delight and satisfaction.”
“Okay, so Step 2 might require a bit more effort/brain power than you can muster, but by completing Step 1, you and countless other awesome peeps will definitely be helping to make it a realistic possibility. (And by completing Step 3, you will definitely be experiencing bliss.)”
“Art V Cancer was founded by Julia Hall and Raid71, aka Chris Thornley, (the original artist who created the iconic Steve Jobs Apple Silhouette) when Chris learned he had a very rare incurable form of non hodgkins lymphoma at the age of 37. They sell signed limited edition prints by established artists to raise money for cancer charities. Some of the artists who’ve contributed their work thus far include Ben O’Brien, Steven Bonner, Shaun Lynch and Craig Minchington.
Since setting up the initial project June 2011, they’ve have already donated over £4050/$6300 to cancer charities. For more information about which charities they support or to find out more about how you can help (I’m sure they’d love more artists to contribute!) please visit the Art V Cancer website.”
