Robin Sullins Benefit Art Auction

"Sugar Fae" created and donated by Kat Soto

Recently I received shocking and sad news in the regular newsletter from Duirwaigh Studios. Robin Sullins has tragically had to have her legs and some fingers amputated after contracting a sudden rare blood infection after a nip from a beloved family dog over the holidays. 

Duirwaigh Studios are holding a fundraising auction, (click this link to preview some of the items already donated) on Valentine's Day, February 14th, 2013, and asking for help from the arts community.

They are asking for donations of art works, including art dolls, and collectibles. They are asking us to help publicize the auction and fund raising efforts, and of course they are asking us to visit the auction and bid.  

There is a second Facebook page for the Relief Fund with links to some of the press the event has received, and a website where you may read the full story, and learn more about this little known canine bacteria.

Duirwaigh are accepting donations until February 10th. Please contact them via e-mail at: donations@duirwaigh.com

And please spread the news of the auction in all your blogs and FB pages! Thank you.
