DIGITAL WATERCOLOR COMMISSION AUCTION (85% OF THE FUNDS GO TO A GOOD CAUSE)!

Well, this is my first time doing something like this...I just hope that it goes well.

The cause I'll be donating to is a rather personal cause. A really close friend of mine has been in a tight spot for some time. He's been jobless for several years and has to take of his elderly grandma in a small 2-room apartment of 7 people. No one in that apartment has a job or a car, and without food stamps, the little cash they have can only go so far. He had a job for 3 days until he got fired for not having proper transportation, and the check? Well, it got spent on utilities and extra food for his family in a matter of days... He doesn't have any more cash on him. It's also difficult to get a job in a city with 15% unemployment, particularly when the applicant has no means of convenient transportation.

It will be his birthday in less than 2 days.

I would like to raise money from this commission auction...if it works out :( My goal is to reach at least $200 so that he can put about $170 to save for emergencies or for a couple of textbooks when he returns to college this fall (15% will be taken out towards the bus pass). Although his tuition is getting paid, he will not be able to afford textbooks. He's been a good friend of mine for almost 5 years now, and I'd like to help him somehow. If this is even slightly successful, I will be able to send funds to his paypal account and he can transfer it to his grandma's bank account and it can sit there until he needs it.

Yes, it's quite unrealistic to think that this will work, but I can't give up. Although I have my share of college financial woes, there are people more unfortunate than me, and my friend is one of them. I'd like to be able to at least give him some money for his birthday...
