Store: About the Donation

Forty percent of the proceeds from the sale of these prints will go to non-profit organizations such as: 

National Audubon Society and the 

Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, Naples, Florida 

A great deal of the images in Everglades: Captured II were taken on the same land on which John James Audubon spent a good deal of his life. His drawings identifying many new American birds were a gift to humankind. Audubon has been kind enough to allow me on their private land to capture many of these species in the wild and I donate to give back. 

Ronald McDonald House, Rochester, Minnesota 

Some years ago, my youngest daughter had some serious and life-threatening issues that brought us to the Mayo Clinic. Our stay was extended for many weeks, and during that time I witnessed many people that could not afford a place to stay while their child received treatment. My heart goes out to those in need and Ronald McDonald house is a great organization providing an essential service. 

Carpenter's Place, Rockford, Illinois 

This organization provides temporary help to those men, women, or families who have found themselves homeless. Further, they have a very successful multi-step program to help people return to a productive life and regain their dignity; I personally know an individual who has benefited from this great organization. 

Salvation Army 

This organization has been helping people for many decades, and eighty-two cents of every donation dollar last fiscal year went toward program services. Because they deliver such a high percentage of each donation dollar to the people they serve, I am proud to help their cause.
