There are many ways to spend $15 dollars, but what better way to participate in a fun event and safe a life while at it! If you are an artist, please consider participating in this art contest that is open to all levels and mediums.
I was asked by the organizers of My Art Contest to judge the Fall/Winter "Portraits" Art Contest . Submissions are currently being accepted and the contest will run until December 15, 2009. The winner will be announced by December 23, 2009.
My Art Contest donates a part of the $15 dollar entry fee to a charity chosen by the Juror's. So of course UNHCR came to mind and I just had to accept!

During my trip to Washington DC for the UNHCR Refugee Day conference in May, I learned that Malaria is the number one killer of refugees in Africa. To combat this problem a very simple and inexpensive solution has been found. A representative of
pointed out that there has been a drastic reduction in deaths due to Malaria in camps where the nets have been implemented. Nothing but Nets works with UNHCR to help distribute bed nets to refugees in 15 countries.
A $10 dollar donation purchases a life-saving bed net for one family!
I have chosen Nothing but Nets to be the charity of choice, who will receive a donation from the "My Art Contest" . I like to invite my artist friends to participate in this contest and help end the spread of Malaria in refugee camps.
Not an Artist - but like to buy a net?
