Will Draw For Food
$6,024 of $4,000 goal
Donate $20 or more to benefit the NYC Food Bank and we'll send you a custom illustration created by one of our talented artists during our one day Draw-A-Thon on Novemeber 16th. We'll be taking donations up until that day. So don't wait...
When making your donation, please use the "comment" field to let us know your favorite food so we can draw you something special.
OrangeYouGlad certainly appreciates your contribution to the NYC Food Bank-we hope to help out a lot of families in need. Our original goal for the event was $2k but on account of Sandy we've doubled our goal. Please help us make this happen. NYC really needs it.

They are the bomb!
A note about copyright. Please note that the copyright for your new artwork belongs to the artist, even though the artwork belongs to you! You can use it for whatever personal stuff you like but you can't use it to make money directly or indirectly. You can take the drawing and put it on your refrigerator or share it on Facebook or use it on your family Christmas card, but you can't put it on a t-shirt and sell it, or use it on your company Christmas card or band flyer without the artists permission.
Quick post draw-a-thon update.
First of all, holy moly! We exceeded our goal by a bundle and we can't thank you enough for all of your support. According to the NYC Food Bank, our $6,024 will provide about 30,000 meals for folks.
Incoming donations were at their highest volume yesterday. We totaled 194 donations and managed to get around 170 requests drawn by 2AM Friday night/Saturday morning. So, there's still some food to be drawn. Another round of drawing early next week will finish everything off (including our dance routines...). Our sincerest apologies if you haven't seen your artwork in the gallery yet. It just means we haven't drawn it. You'll see it before Thanksgiving.
My apologies to the $50 donors who were supposed to be emailed the day of the event. We just didn't have the man power to keep up. I'll be sending you links to your images today and tomorrow. Thanks for your understanding.
We'll be putting the drawings in the mail the week after Thanksgiving. I believe I only have your billing address. If you want your drawing to go anywhere other than your billing address please email it to me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
And last but not least, thanks to absolutely everybody involved: the incredible artists; all of the generous donors; our amazing sponsors: Social Guide, ANPR, Little Rhody Press, and Wine Sisterhood; and our technology partners: Tumblr, Twitter, and GoFundMe.
