Paying It Backwards & Forwards... aka "Java Love"

While we’re in the midst of raising money for a great cause, I thought we might take a break on Christmas Eve and remember what we’re up to with this project... and how even the most negative of situations can be turned into something positive.

This struck me as relevant to what ARTvision is about, and particularly what we try to focus on as we close 2008.

Take a look at the below story, but make sure to read
Arthur Rosenfeld’s piece in the Huffington Post before you do. It’s a truly remarkable feat of seeing through and above a negative everyday situation for... a greater truth.

Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah. Happy

SOLD! Update: "Rain of Hope" Earns $500 For PI

Congratulations to John Nickolas of Dallas, Texas, who just donated $500 to Positive Impact... and who scored himself an enhanced version of “Rain of Hope” for his living room wall!

John has a special connection to the photo, which he explains in his
testimonial. “I was with Will when he captured the ‘Rain of Hope’ image,” he says. “I encourage everyone to support PI and keep those you love close to your heart.”

Two of these special-edition printings of “
Rain of Hope” remain - one of which is in stock now. (The second is a special order but can be quickly shipped to the buyer.) Both of the other two are photo to art canvas and are offered at $425. “Rain of Hope” will not be offered again in any subsequent ARTvision events or other showings.

We’ve only just begun our sales drive -
