Inspired by the videos by Operation Underground Railroad, "Finding Light in the Darkness", I have decided to use my artistic abilities to benefit this amazing organization. I am offering personalized pencil portrait sketches on 8 1/2 x 11 paper in exchange for contributions to O.U.R. You may email me a photo or photos of the sketches you would like done, and I can let you know if they would work well. (If it isn't a clear photo, it probably will not make a very good sketch.) No professional photos, please, unless written authorization from photographer. I ask that you contribute $30 per face sketched, to O.U.R. Maximum of 3 faces per sketch. For example, a portrait of a child with his dog would be 2 faces, equaling a $60 contribution. If you have any questions or just want to get some ideas using a compilation of photos, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also check out my website to view samples of my work at drawinthelight.blogspot.com. I'm trying to not spend any time doing paperwork other than sketching, so please only submit donations directly to O.U.R. You can email me a pre-paid mailing label addressed to you when I've finished your sketch(es). (USPS charges around $7 for a flat rate priority mail envelope right now.) I am doing the sketches in the order received; usually about 5 per week.
While entering your contribution, you can select the amount you wish to donate and dedicate it to me, Karen Smith, at email@example.com. There, you will have the option of putting a personal message regarding the sketch or sketches that you had done, or would like done. If you just wish to contribute, but are not interested in a sketch at this time, that's fine too!
If you haven't checked out the films by Operation Underground Railroad yet, please check them out at ourfilm.org. They are amazing. Thank you so much for your time and contributions!
