I've been wanting to do something to help the families affected by the Orlando shooting at the Pulse nightclub earlier this month. As a long time Orlando area resident, this really hit home to me and I feel the need to contribute in whatever way possible.
I recently started a new collection of designs from my "Livin' the MAD Life™" series, one of those design ideas is "I love my Home Sate", featuring all hand drawn hearts with the abbreviations for each state. I have a new website dedicated to this collection and am working on getting all of the states listed with products from t-shirts to phone cases. I realized that the "I Love Florida" products could be a way for me to help the Pulse victims, by offering a portion of the profits to go to support the tragedy.
From every purchase of the "I love Florida" design I will be donating 25% of the profits to charitable causes helping the victims families, other portions of the profits will be going to provide advertising and marketing to help raise awareness for my support of the sales of these products. The more awareness I can provide by running ads, posting to social media, word of mouth, etc. will help to raise more funds I can donate, so please help me by sharing in whatever way you can!
The design is all about love and pride for living in the state of Florida, and at this dark time in our state history it feels fitting to have the positive message of my art help to bring a little light and positivity to the situation. I hope you will help me to support the families impacted by this tragedy and show your support and love for the great state of Florida at the same time. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
All of the "I Love Florida" Products are included in this charitable cause, you can see all of them HERE.
