Blessings From Batman

>>The Discretion:   Respectfully, due to Jamie’s deeply humble nature, we believe it would be best to keep this discrete throughout the month of November, while the fundraising and art auction are live. In addition to making a contribution, we are inviting everyone to please leave a comment, or contact us with a private message here, with any messages you would like to share with Jamie. We will be compiling all of the comments and messages into a printed book to gift to her along with the raised funds. It is our hope to present her with this story of everyone’s support, the book of comments, and the raised funds, all at once.  

>>The Story:   We’re calling together our artistic community, friends and family to help support a fellow artist and her daughter. Jamie and her daughter are a strong family unit - leading a beautifully minimalistic lifestyle and placing their value on soulful experiences and pursuing personal dreams. Recently, they experienced a soul-crushing and distressful hardship when someone broke into their home and disarmed their safe, taking the 10+ years of savings Jamie had persistently set aside for her daughter’s college fund. Unfortunately, it was discovered thereafter that home insurance will not cover cash theft. A few of us have come together to share this story with our fellow artists in hopes that we can replace even a portion of what Jamie and her daughter have lost. 
Jamie is an incredibly talented hairdresser. She not only raises the bar with her own artistry, but undeniably supports so many other artists in our international community, expecting next to nothing in return. She instills this same passion of living and persevering in her daughter, who is currently a senior in high school. Jamie’s daughter has been pursuing a path to study marine biology in college. Her dream is to study sharks as her career. In the past two years, she has successfully pursued and achieved certifications to begin paving her way to that career path. Together, Jamie and her daughter have an unwavering support system with one another, always prioritizing each other’s dreams and goals, regardless of the sacrifice. This recent misfortune has left them starting over with saving for college funds, with less than a year left before college begins. 

>>The Next Chapter:   We now want to join their unwavering support circle and help rebuild the dreams and possibilities for Jamie’s daughter. You can join this support circle, too. Beyond this donations page, there is an Ebay auction that has been organized by Marvel and D.C. comic artist, and client of Jamie’s, Shawn Crystal. Shawn has drawn together many of the comic industry’s greatest artists to support this cause through their art. Each artist has donated a piece of work - featuring Batman -  to be auctioned off, with 100% of the proceeds going to Jamie and her daughter. To browse the auction, visit our EBay Auction Store, Blessings From Batman: 

Let’s write their next chapter, together.
