Fifty percent of the proceeds will be donated to CERF+ by the artist. Since 1985, CERF+ has assisted hundreds of professional artists working in craft disciplines with emergency financial assistance, as well as resources and educational programs for any studio-based artist designed to strengthen and sustain their careers. CERF+ has endeavored to assure the well-being and success of individual artists, but also, through research and advocacy, to advance the needs and status of the craft field. CERF+ is a respected leader in the arts sector, advocating for improving the overall safety net for artists before, during, and after disasters. https://cerfplus.org/
