AUCTION NOW LIVE - BIDS VIA MESSAGE using my Contact form, please.
100% of the sale of 'All's Not Lost' will go directly to @orangutaninformationcentre, so please share this post with anyone you think might like to bid.
'All's Not Lost', inspired by Hope, is up for auction to raise funds for the team who are looking after her and many other orangutans rescued from persecution.
Message me with your bid, please - I'm not placing this artwork on eBay as I want the full donation amount to go to Hope's care at @orangutaninformationcentre. I'll run the auction for 7 days, with updates as we go along on where the bidding stands. I'm donating both the artwork itself AND the cost of tracked and insured shipping.
Hope's baby tragically died during her rescue from a palm oil plantation where they were being viciously persecuted. Hope is now in intensive care, her body riddled with 74 pellet shots, suffering from traumas including a broken shoulder and large, open wounds inflicted upon her by humans. As a mother myself, and as a cell in the body of humanity - a species that is capable of such kindness and yet is also causing so much destruction - this 'story' (much as I hate to call it that) is incredibly poignant. It really makes one feel deep despair at the cruelty in the world, alongside anguish that people are placed in a position where the greed of corporations drives them to carry out such dreadful acts. But truly, TRULY, all is NOT lost - as long as there are people upon this planet feeding back empathy, love, compassion and understanding, and willing to take right action in the defence of that which is life serving, Life Itself will perceive those acts and KNOW what to do to balance and rectify these situations. As long as there is breath in us, we must know that there is still hope.
It makes for truly heartbreaking viewing, but if you want to follow Hope's story and ongoing efforts to save her, please visit https://www.instagram.com/orangutaninformationcentre.
100% of the sale of 'All's Not Lost' will go directly to The Orangutan Information Centre, so PLEASE alert anyone in the who you think might like to bid via your social media channels or any other methods at your disposal.
Thank you <3
