Art for a Cause

Piece to be auctioned at Sime Photo +, taken by Kelly Sime

If you live live in the States, you’ve probably heard about the devastating tornado that killed over 100 people in Joplin, MO, leaving others without homes or a place to work. It’s amazing the damage that can be had in just a few minutes, leaving a small town with despair and yet determination. As soon as I heard about the natural disaster, I checked with some of my contacts there to see what needed down. I know of people driving hours to help clear rubble and others who are collecting or donating money to help those in need.

Kelly Sime of Sime Photo + is graciously auctioning off one of her pieces with all proceeds going to the Joplin Public Library Staff Relief Fund. What greater cause is there for art then art for a cause?
