  3. This is a wonderful idea! Great to see children using their talents for a great cause!
    I am an artist myself – and paint animals. I would like to do something using my art to help endangered animals. Not sure of the best way to do this? Was thinking of maybe doing a raffle for one of my paintings (of an endangered animal) on social media – and the proceeds going to help the animals? Not sure of the best way to go about this?
    Also, do you have contests for adult artists?
