Pink Dinosaur Charity for Breast Cancer Research

From my co-administrators at Art Evolved:

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and what better way to promote awareness is there than with Pink Dinosaurs?!
ART Evolved is organizing a Pink Dinosaur Fundraising Event for the month of October to benifit cancer research. I personally know too many people who have passed away and who are currently battling cancer, as I am sure many of you do too. Pink Dinosaurs is hoping to raise $500 towards cancer research (through the Canadian Cancer Society).
There are two ways to donate with Pink Dinosaurs:
First, visit our Pink Dinosaurs event page and donate directly there.
Second, please SEND IN a picture of a pink dinosaur to us here at artevolved@gmail.com and ART Evolved's administration will donate one dollar for each pink dinosaur submitted. We will post each pink dinosaur here throughout October, so find that pink marker and start drawing!
Again, our Pink Dinosaur Event Page is http://cancerevents.kintera.org/pinkdinosaurs


The Pink dinosaur event is already a huge success, and over 80 pink dinosaur illustrations have been submitted so far!  

I'll be donating what I can as well. 

And here's a sketch of my Parasaurolophus entry so far.  I hope To have it ready by Monday for submission.

Anyone can enter, at any artistic skill level!  Fun-fun for a great cause.

2011 presents many challenges for nonprofits. Today, nonprofits face a reduction in grants; an economy that is stretching their nonprofit dollars to the max; an increase in demand for their services; all while trying to reach new donors in a very competitive industry. Nonprofits are trying very hard to "get the word out about what they do for others", while growing their organization for long-term success.

This is a nice concept.I hope that more and more people with a big heart will support this cause.
