What
Get some art, and help Colleen pay rent!

Who
Hello! My name is Tabetha, and this is a picture of my friend Colleen.  She is having a rough time lately - she is out of work and is facing eviction.

Why
Two years ago my mother got sick, and I had to stop working to take care of her. My community came together to help pay our bills, and I'd like to pay that forward by helping Colleen.
My goal is to raise enough money to help her with two months of living expenses while she gets back on her feet.

Art Grab-Bags for Donations
Instead of asking for donations alone, we're selling Art Grab-Bags! These bags will have paintings, drawings, prints, and/or collages that have been donated by me , Colleen, and other local Denver artists. How exciting will it be to open your bag and discover your new works of art?!

Art Grab-Bag Party!
Please donate now (so Colleen can pay her rent!) and pick up your grab bag later. I'm throwing an Art Grab-Bag Bash at my art studio on February 13th - come by, pick up your bag, and celebrate life and art! And perhaps trade art with other grab-baggers!*

What's in the bag, dad?
Cool art, of course! How much depends on how much you donate...

*If you can't make the party on the 13th, you can pick up your bag another day.
Also, we will ship your grab-bag if you live out-of-state (continental US only, please).

Hello, and thanks to everyone who has donated!!
Colleen is still struggling to get on her feet, and is again facing eviction. We're a bit over halfway to our goal, and we've still got Art Grab-Bags and music downloads available!
If you're in the Denver area tonight, you can stop by my open studio6-10pm at 802 Santa Fe Drive and pick up grab-bag in person!
Otherwise, please feel free to contribute online - every little bit help!

Thanks for all the great support!! We raised enough so far to pay Colleen's rent for February, plus a bill and some groceries. (I was horrified to learn that she had been eating just ONE meal a day.)

We still have a ways to go. Once she finds a job it will take a bit to get that first paycheck (we've all been in that spot before).

Also... Art Grab Bags!! There are still some left...
