Dear Friends, There is so much to do here in Houston and surrounding areas to help people affected by Harvey!
It’s all so devastating but it also warms my heart to see how fantastic people are, helping in all kind of ways and even driving in from other states!
This is a fundraiser from Louisiana, a silkprint from an artist initially produced to help raising funds for hurricane Katrina, now reproduced in order to help with the Harvey fundraising!
Please help if you can! Here is a text from their website:
Hurricane Harvey ReliefThe George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts (GRFA) and the Rodrigue family announce a re-release of George Rodrigue’s historic post-Katrina print We Will Rise Again (2005) to benefit schools throughout Texas and Louisiana impacted by Hurricane Harvey.George Rodrigue raised millions of dollars for humanitarian and arts organizations following Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The original print of We Will Rise Again raised $700,000, much of it generated by Texans, many of whom also helped displaced Louisiana families.This special release includes the reference “Hurricane Harvey 2017” in the white border alongside the words “We Will Rise Again” and Rodrigue’s official estate-stamped signature.Hurricane Harvey Relief Prints sell for $500 each, a price set by Rodrigue for the original 2005 post-Katrina edition, long sold out. Rather than limit the new prints by number, GRFA limits them by time, with hopes of raising much-needed funds as quickly as possible for hurricane and flood impacted schools in Texas and Louisiana.www.georgrodriguefoundation.org
