Giving back and supporting amazing charities for me is easy. It's a no brainer. I've always said that I give because I can. And even if I can't. I still do. I'm extremely grateful to have a talent that I can use to help people out. My career is booming and I'm in a place right now that I can support what is dear to my heart.
One cause that I'm never shy to support is the fight against Mesothelioma. I donate to The Pacific Heart, Lung & Blood Institute (PHLBI) twice a year since 2020. Their mission is improving lives of mesothelioma patients through education on lung-sparing treatments for malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) and to develop and/or invest in groundbreaking research of new treatment options, in hops of finding a cure.
I was truly honored to have been asked to donate my art numerous times to help raise money and awareness for this amazing cause.
I was also honored to be invited to donate a piece of work for the Bridgette Mayer Gallery Hope & Possibility Benefit Exhibition for Tools for School and EducationWorks in Philadelphia in 2021.
That years' exhibition brought together artists from around the world, working in a variety of media and styles. We were thrilled for the support and funds raised for EducationWorks and Tools for School.
