“Urgent Need” for Giving Tuesday.

by ncwinters on November 27, 2018

It’s #givingtuesday and my wife reminded me that my donation to the ACLU foundation is due, so I I thought I’d mention this print again.

“Urgent Need” was created a few years ago with the banner text that reads “An Urgent Need for a Renewed Sense of Compassion.” I feel that there’s an increasing amount of hostility, xenophobia and general unawareness both in the political landscape and in online and social media interactions in general. It’s increasingly easier to stay in a bubble of like minded people who all share the same viewpoint, and more isolated to different points of view, cultures and ways of being. A reminder to focus on a greater sense of compassion and human awareness is my goal for this image, traits which ultimately end up reminding us just how actually similar we all are on a human scale on the ride atop this hunk of rock in space.

Originally my goal was to donate 20% of the proceeds of all sales of this print to the ACLU Foundation, but after a successful year, I’m in a better financial place to up the donation to 30%. The print is a five-color silkscreen print, printed by Danny Askar and measures 16” x 20.” The edition size is 300 prints, each hand signed and numbered and available for $40 plus shipping. With about 70 prints left before they’re gone, I’d love to see this print sold out before this year is over, so I can make the final donation and get going on to another charity print for 2019.

If you’ve ever wanted to support what I do and believe in, this is the print. It’s not a big, super rare gig poster or super limited edition movie poster, but it is for a cause I believe in. Thanks for looking and for all the generosity you’ve already given this year, and happy holidays to all!
