Art Fundraiser for Canadian Cancer Society

*****Update: Sept 30, 2010: SOLD! This artwork sold and has netted $45 for the Canadian Cancer Society.

Support The D.A.D. Project!
The D.A.D. (Drawing A Day) Project is an ongoing, online, art-based fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society, the largest national charitable funder of cancer research in Canada. Sisters Emily and Serena Chen used their creative talents to start this fundraiser when their father was diagnosed in May 2009 with metastatic stage 4 colon cancer.

The D.A.D. project won my heart so I donated a painting for their cause. If you like my fish, buy it through D.A.D. and help them raise money for continued cancer research.
Fundraising progress:
Goal: $1,000.00
Achieved: $600.00
Almost there!

Make a donation (as much or as little as you can).
