Looking for drawings for a horse rescue

Hello there!

I'm looking to purchase drawings, paintings, photographs of horses in general to support a local horse rescue that greatly needs funding. I would draw myself but, I am not a great artist!!!

This group can be found on Facebook under "Auction Horses Rescue" They are known to go to the Southern California Auctions, where "killer buyers" are known to lurk and purchase horses for $50 and ship to MX for meat (illegal). This group, just last month, took on 12 horses from an auction- one of which was a 22yr old Thoroughbred with a bladder problem that no one wanted. They get them veterinary care and find them forever homes, all on donations and their own money. They are in the process of becoming a 503(c) but are just doing this for the love of horses, as am I.

Therefore, I am here to see if I can purchase some drawings or such from ya'll that I will be allowed (by your authorization) to resell with the proceeds going to the horses that are rescued.

YOu don't want them donated? If you have tax forms, people can donate them and use it as a write off in their taxes.

I am sure I can find something for you, but in order to send it, it would have to be unmatted or unframed, just the artwork.

PM me.

Since they aren't a 503(c)3 yet, it would just be a personal donation-- no tax exemptions. That's why I said I would purchase them. I'd LOVE for some to be donated but I understand if people wouldn't want to because of the tax thing. This is basically a group of gals working together to help horses get out of bad situations and I'm trying to find fundraising ideas to go towards the vet bills.

Will you auction anything besides art work? I occasionally donate horsehair jewelry to rescues for their fund raisers.

I make custom horsehair jewelry at www.sandstormhorsehairdesigns.com

I can auction anything :)

Right now I'm in the process of investigating some slaughter guys that buy from the auction houses out here (the ones we try to out-bid, hence the funding).... UGH.. I hate evil people!!! :(
