Paws for Charity Art Book & 2011 Calendar

I am so excited that my copy of The Paws for Charity 2011 Calendar just arrived!
Emmitt and I are so honored to be a part of this wonderful project.
Our painting "The Kiss" is featured in the book as well as on the month of May 2011 Calendar page.

The Paws For Charity Art Book Project & 2011 Calendar is a unique fundraiser that celebrates our love of pets, and raises funds for a human cause.

"The 2010 Art Book is a compilation of artwork and photography of dogs and cats submitted by 65 artists and photographers in 7 countries.

All funds raised from the sale of these books are donated to The Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade, a registered charity with programs in over 50 countries.

This charity also carries the Humane Charity Seal of Approval."
Details about Paws For Charity are available on their blog.

Emmitt and I are honored to have our work featured in this wonderful post.

T-shirts, greeting cards, and wall calendars are available with all proceeds donated to breast cancer charity.

Emmitt and I contributed one of our favorite images for the book - The Kiss.

High 5 Melissa for who you are and what you do for others.
There is not a more giving person on earth than you.
Your painting of "The Kiss" speaks, and no other words are needed. That is your giving heart.
Thank you for helping the animals.
We will need to order that book.
