Artists For Healing:
and against famine

Artists Save Lives

You may have heard about the famines in many parts of the world. Because of El Nino and wars, it's much worse than anyone predicted. 5000 people are starving each day. Terrorist activities and wars make  our humanitarian aid and aid more vitally needed than ever.  We can save the lives of innocent people. Time is precious; as artists we can help. We can help others whereever they are in the world. Any aid to any relief organization you are comfortable with is the goal: your art can contribute to this project.

We are working on a wallpaper project: a number of artists are converting artworks to windows wallpaper and including it for download as CAREWARE (if the recipients care, they do something to help the famine in  the world). As artists, we do what comes naturally; we continue to make great art and we donate a piece for inclusion in the wallpaper packs.

Please understand that we expect downloaders to send donations or help directly to the relief organization of their choice. 

Contributing Artists

  • Convert your piece to .bmp format, 800x600 pixels maximum.

  • Make a zip file and place it on your web site along with an url link in your web page: Include your url, your copyright info, ie, copyright notice in a txt file along with your wallpaper bmp file (inside the zip: bmp, your txt file, donation txt file). You may also include a txt file that lists relief organizations you feel comfortable with; be sure to include their address and information on how to send donations to them. We do not handle ANY money at all, so don't send us any. We want donations to go directly from the donator to the relief agency of their choice.
  • We provide a web page to list all of the member's wallpaper links, along with descriptions for people to read before downloading. Your page on your site may repeat the information about agencies we listed here and add to it if you want to add other agencies.
