Hello everybody, we are pleased to announce that we are holding an art auction to benefit the victims of human trafficking. If you are an artist who would like to join us in this cause by donating a piece then please contact us here. If you are an art lover then please come to the art auction and add some great art to your collection.
The proceeds from this auction will go to ZOE and She Dances, two organizations that are dedicated to eradicating human trafficking and providing after-care to victims that have been rescued. Human trafficking is a modern day form of slavery where people profit from the control and exploitation of others. It is an under-reported cause to which there is a great need for general awareness. Human trafficking is now the third largest criminal industry in the world.
With this art auction, we are hoping to raise awareness and funds to fight trafficking. Our goal is to raise 5,000 dollars for these two organizations.

Hey all, they auction was a success! With a space packed full of amazing art we managed to raise $4,600 for ZOE and She Dances! A huge thanks to all of the artists who donated work and to all of the folks that came out to show their support. Its pretty amazing to think that through what we've done we will actually be helping to make these women and children's lives better. People from both ZOE and She Dances came out to speak to us and moved us by telling us what they do and by sharing stories of women and children whose lives they've saved from the most dire of situations. Hats off to them for the amazing work they do and for being a true inspiration to us all. You can check out a bunch of more photos from the auction here!
