Being an artist myself, I understand how hard it is for artists to receive fair pay (or even jobs for that matter) for their time and talent. There are quite a few artists who have having hard times (i.e. family illness, financial crisis, etc.) who could use a few extra dollars to their cause.
The funds used will aid artists in need on a number of websites, but mainly DeviantArt.
'Artists' includes those of visual (i.e. photography, digital, traditional, sculptures, etc.), as well as musicians.
