My Imaginary friend by JakeParker My Imaginary friend by JakeParker
My Imaginary Friend

You guys know I have a bunch of kids right? (here's two of the five) I do, and they go to the elementary school down the street. This school has a bunch of old PC's that are crashing all the time, and because of budget cuts they can't afford to replace them.

So, they're holding a fund raiser to buy new Macs, and I'm doing my part by selling ART!

It's simple: BUY ART = KIDS GET NEW COMPUTERS!!!

There's two ways you can help:

Buy a print.

Bid on the original.

The auction closes in 5 days, and for the next week all prints sold will go to directly funding the new computer lab.

Also, if you buy a print or the original drawing you'll also get an original hand drawn picture by one of my kids, plus a thank you note! (How cute is that?)

If you want to pass on supporting right now it's totally understandable, but could I ask you to at least reblog or share the link with a friend?

Thanks for your help!

I'm not sure if computers are good for kids of that age. They should be playing outside instead of getting addicted to the screen, getting fat and bad eyes so they would need glasses.
In my time on elementary school they didn't even have computers and we didn't miss them. So I wouldn't buy the art for this goal.
But the drawing is great. :D *fave*

You do realize that computers are used for educational purposes too right? They aren't going to be on the computer 24/7 while in school.
