[Update: The drawing is complete (I used a random number generator to choose randomly), and the winner is Nathaniel. I’ll reach out to him to coordinate delivery. Thank you to everyone who contributed]
I’ll admit it, I was tempted. I want to win. And winning means raising money. And big donations are very attractive. So, yes, when I decided to give away the painting above (click the image to view the whole thing) to a donor, I considered putting a high ceiling on the donation amount that would take it.
But then I thought better of it. I want the “regular” people I’m fighting for to have an opportunity to get unique campaign memorabilia just as much as a wealthy person who can contribute to a campaign more easily. So I decided to level the playing field.
Make a donation of any size this week (by 11:59 pm on Saturday 2/25). Then write a comment on this blog post telling me why your donation was meaningful to you.
I’ll choose the winner on Sunday morning, and make arrangements to deliver the painting ASAP after that, ideally in person, depending on geography and other circumstances.
The painting was painted in late January 2017 at Art of Merlot, a wonderful local company. Not surprisingly, I didn’t exactly follow the official class painting guide. It’s no masterpiece, but it is pure Noah.
So don’t wait. Visit the Donate page and write that comment here. We’ve got exciting plans for events and outreach, and we need your help to make it happen!
