I was trying to craft the perfect intro line to tell you all about Eat Art – but instead – let me just give you the first lines from their About page:
Eat Art is an eclectic collection of photographers, painters & designers committed to artfully ending hunger. Whenever art or apparel is purchased, meals are sent to hungry children around the world. You get the art … the kids get to eat.
Kinda cool, eh?
But – how does it work?
Well – let’s say you’re looking for a print for your living room or office. You check out the Eat Art site and you see a print that you’d like to hang on your wall. When you select your print size – alongside the prices – you’ll also see how many meals your buying. If the print is $20 – well, you just bought 100 meals – enough to feed one child for a month.
Their partner, Children’s Hunger Fund, then helps distribute the food in countries like Dominican Republic, Ghana, Peru, Haiti, Guatemala, Mexico, Nepal, Rwanda, Thailand, and Zimbabwe.
And right now – there is no paid staff. So funds from art purchases, apparel, and donations go directly towards sending meals to kids and the creation of art.
As for the photos – in most cases they are printed using Endura Metallic photo printing from MPix (good stuff!). And if you prefer a Canvas Gallery Wrap – they have those, too!
So, check ‘em out – and then pass the word!
