As a continuation of my last post, this one will also be talking about Andrew Ashcraft, the boy I played with when I was young who grew up to be one of the fallen Hotshot heroes from Arizona’s recent fires.
I created a photo to work through my grief, as I often do, but it didn’t feel like enough. I kept thinking about Andrew’s poor widow, left with their four very young children to raise, all on her own. And then I’d think about the families of the 18 other firefighters and how would they get by, and I had to do something.
So, 75% of all profits made from any sales of To The Lost will go to directly to the families through the donation program set up. This applied to anything and everything To The Lost appears on. I have, of course, my extremely beautiful and archival fine art prints, and also blank cards, stickers, clothing, Ipod, Iphone and Ipad cases.
There are 19 families left without fathers, husbands, providers. The last thing they need while they’re still reeling from the profound loss is to worry about how the bills are going to get paid. Let’s give them some of the aid they need.
