2nd Annual $4000 Challenge Begins June 1st. Let's Get 100% This Year!


Today, June 1, we will begin our 2nd annual $4000 challenge.  As was the case in 2015, we have anonymous donor (actually a married couple) that has once again challenged Art Has Heart and its supporters to help us raise potentially $8000.  The anonymous (they choose to remain anonymous) will match, dollar-for-dollar, through direct solicitation to our suppoters up to $4000.  Their conditions are that we don't give away any enticements as a condition of the donations.  However, last year, we had only three weeks to raise the funds and this year, we have been given the months of June and July to do so.

We  just awarded $10,000 in college scholarships for 2016-2017 and this annual challenge helps us meet that obligation.

Last year, we were able to raise $2650 (66.3%) of the $4000 goal so we achieved $5300 out of the possible $8000 that was offered.  This year, given the increased calendar, we hope to earn the maximum.  All of you can help us achieve the $8000 goal.  Each donation is, of course, tax deductible and whatever you donate is, in effect doubled because of the match.  A donation of $10 is $20 and a donation of $20 is $40 and so forth.  The easiest way to donate is to go the "giving" link and the top of this page and then use PayPal.  If you want to mail in your donation, feel free to do that, too.  The address is Art Has Heart, PO Box 57045, Albuquerque, NM 87187-7045.

I am going to list our donors this year so that we can recognize and thank them in public.  Check this posting throughout the process for updates and we thank you in advance for your consideration of this request and whathever support you can provide.  Blessings and best wishes.

Giveaway #7 Thanksgivng & Christmas 2015














This is the 7th giveaway sponsored by the Art Has Heart Foundation.  This time, we have donations from both Amado & JB Pena.  This giveaway will last from November 2 to December 16th and the winner will be drawn on that day with our goal to have both items to the winner by Christmas.  JB's wonderful handmade wrap is a one-size fits all garment made especially for this giveway.  Amado's plate is an orignal painting on ceramic.  It has the Pena imagery on the front and it is painted black on the back.

We have changed one rule of our giveaways in response to comments we have received in the past.  Donations and entries will be computed on a $10 basis.  If you make a tax deductible donation of $10 or less, you will have one entry into the drawing.  If you donate $50, you will have five entries and for a $100, you will be entered 10 times.  Any $5 donation will be rounded up to the next $i0 increment.

You may use the "Giving" link above to access PayPal to make your tax deducitble donation or send your donation to Art Has Heart, PO Box 57045, Albuquerque, NM 87187-7045.  Another comment we have heard previously is the time is too short and we have rectified that and, yes, you can donate more than one time if that fits with your financial circumstances.

I am personally pleased that we have an item by both Amado and JB and hope you are, as well. If you have any questiions, feel free to email tham to me.
