Chank Art: A Glass of WaterHow about a little springtime benefit art auction to make the world a better place? Today’s good cause is charity:water and the painting I’m donating is called “A Glass of Water.” I’m selling this painting to raise money for Erica Mayer’s charity:water campaign. You could help bring clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. 100% of public donations directly fund water projects. And all you have to do is buy this neat little painting. It measures about 16″ x 22″ and is made with acrylic paint on paper, a one-of-a-kind original.

This painting is being made available directly from the artist and is available today! There’s no real structure to the auction, it’s not on eBay or anything. But if you think you might like a deep and profoundly simple piece of Chank Art, send me a tweet or an e-mail and let me know if you’d like to make a bid. I reckon I’ll let the bidding go til $250 or June 1st, whichever comes first.

The bidding is currently at $99.

How about $120? Would you pay $120 for a Chank Original painting? Let me know:) Auction ends today.

Let’s help make the world a better place with more clean and safe water!
