The recent developments in Haiti have left me heartbroken: over 200,000 dead, 250,000 injured, and 1.5 million left homeless due to the destruction of the magnitude-7 earthquake. And now today, the largest aftershock thus far has hit — a magnitude 6.1 — sending more people scrambling for their lives.
Growing up in Southern California, I am no stranger to earthquakes: as a baby, I was an unwilling participant in the 6.7 magnitude 1971 Sylmar quake, and in 1994 I was a mere 15 minutes away from the epicenter of the Northridge earthquake. That quake measured 6.9 and completely rocked my world. It’s no wonder that these quakes in Haiti have caused such death & destruction.
So, here’s what I am doing: until further notice, I am donating 20% of ALL SALES of artwork off of my website at www.thh70online.com to the American Red Cross to aid earthquake victims in Haiti.
Additionally, I will be donating a sizable portion of all sales from pieces in my current show at The 4th Wall Gallery in Dallas, TX as well.
Consider this a win-win: you get some kick ass art, and at the same time (and more importantly), we are banding together to help our fellow brothers & sisters who have been hit by a massive natural disaster.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart…please keep the people of Haiti in your thoughts and prayers…
