As the east coast continues to come together to recover from Hurricane Sandy, some heartwarming initiatives are being put into motion. And in New York, artists were among those hit the hardest by the storm’s destructive flooding. But now, artists are coming together and offering ways for anyone interested to help those who need it the most. Flavorwire featured some heartwarming fundraising being put on by artists:
1. “I Still Love NY” t-shirts from Sebastian Errazuriz come in two styles: hand dipped in blue ink (floodwaters) or in a blacked-out Manhattan style.
2. Art for Sandy Relief is a comic book art auction launced by Rich Ginter and Jim Viscardi in an effort to raise money for the Steven Siller Tunnels to Towers Hurricane Relief effort.
3. Logan Hicks is an urban photographer selling prints of one of his pictures of blacked-out Manhattan. All proceeds will go to the American Red Cross.
4. Re-Build Up is a digital print available (at an affordable price) that spreads a message and benefits the All Hands Volunteers.
