First Responder Artists: These Designers, Artists and Photographers are Donating 100% of Proceeds to Sandy Recovery 

There are so many stories of despair, struggle, hope and survival coming out of New York, New Jersey and the rest of the eastern seaboard impacted by hurricane Sandy it’s almost overwhelming to determine how to help. From what I’m hearing many places are slowly returning to life as normal and yet it’s clear that entire towns and neighborhoods have been completely devastated. Casey Neistat’s video of Staten Island is a sober reminder of this. Luckily there are kabillions of ways to help and in case you need just a little more incentive, these artists are making it easy for you by donating 100% of the proceeds generated from the purchase of prints and shirts to Sandy recovery.

New York Lights Out is a limited edition print of the blackout in lower Manhattan by NYC-based stencil artist Logan Hicks with 100% of proceeds being donated to the Red Cross.

Photographer Joel Zimmer has six great photos for sale over on Etsy with 100% of proceeds going to benefit victims.

Our friends over at 20×200 are offering this stunning, limited edition Blue Marble print shot by NASA’s GOES-13 satellite capturing Hurricane Sandy just off the eastern seaboard.

NYC-artist Molly Dilworth partnered with ArtWeLove to offer this limited edition print of her famous 2010 site-specific poured paint installation in Times Square, Cool Water, Hot Island. All proceeds will benefit the American Red Cross.
