I Like Money

James Miles ©2006/Creativity Explored
I don't give very much money away. But Creativity Explored is the place to send it, if you want to spend it. Below is the e-mail they sent. The reason I like them isn't so much because they help artists with disabilities–it's because the art they produce is great, and because they're the epitome of organization.

When you buy art from Creativity Explored,
you help artists with developmental disabilities become more self sufficient. Thank you very much.

If everyone on our mailing list donated just $20, Creativity Explored could raise $100,000....With that kind of money, we could:
•Pay the rent for our gallery and two studios for a year,
•Or cover health insurance costs for our amazing staff,
•Or just keep the lights on, the phones ringing, and the paint flowing...

If you have a soft spot in your heart for money and art, here's their address:
