Your support sold out all the owl prints within 8 hours and raised nearly $1000 to help Sandy victims who have lost their homes and who are now enduring the cold as they try to rebuild their lives. I wanted to show you exactly where your money is going, so below is the breakdown.
There were 7 17" x 22" prints which sold for $45: 7 x 45 = $315
There were 16 13" x 19" prints which sold for $35: 16 x 35 = $560

To make it an even $1000 I'm adding an extra $125 to divide between the Rockaway Renegades operation and the Red Cross. I am giving $800 to the Rockaway Renegades because this will put them over their fundraising goal and we will also be able to see exactly where the money is going— van-loads of my friends and I will be going out to Rockaway over the weekend to put it to use. You will see specifically who and where you are helping. In my friend Holly Butler's words who organized the operation: "We are spending the money on 3 things: food so we can cook hot meals all weekend, cleaning supplies to help the clean up mission, and basic supplies like batteries, flashlights, toiletries, non-perishable food, water etc." The other $200 will go the Red Cross and through my freelance company's matching program it actually becomes $400.
All said and done, the total you all ultimately raised = $1200
And just so you know I'm not pocketing your money to build my cat circus, here are your receipts. Thank you, people of the internet. I'll post any additional photos I can of the Rockaway cleanup after the weekend.
Your prints will all be in the mail in the next several days. If you are U.S. based you will receive a USPS shipping confirmation email. International buyers please allow 5-10 business days for delivery.
