Honoring The Champ This Holiday Weekend!

Main Article Image

Online Auction Open! Let the Bidding Begin!

The ART 4 GOOD Auction honoring Muhammad Ali Parkinson's Foundation is now open. The auction will run from June 24, 2016 to July 4, 2016. So, tell your friends, family, community. Let the bidding begin!

Teaming up with CrowdRISE, ART 4 Good Foundation has created this auction to rally up support for The Muhammad Ali Parkinson's Foundation.

Are YOU in?

Here's the story:  When we all mourned the death of a legend; someone who inspired us throughout our lives, ART4GOOD was one of the first donors to support CrowdRise's fundraising for The Muhammad Ali Center.

We wanted to do MUCH MORE!

This auction offers everyone whose life was touched by THE CHAMP to give back to help others who are currently suffering as he did, to find a cure!

On an even more personal note, I was honored to have met Muhammad Ali, and as the Founding Chairperson of ART4GOOD, I made it my own personal mission to enhance this auction event with more offerings than ever before.

I will always cherish the time I spent with him.

Thank YOU for participating and making a difference!

Sincerely yours,

Wendie Busig-Kohn

    THANK YOU FOR ALL THAT YOU DO TO HELP OTHERS!
    I would like to take a personal moment to say
    THANK YOU to each and every one of our BIDDERS!  
    YOU HAVE BEEN THE WIND BENEATH OUR WINGS, enabling us to GIVE BACK!
     
    A few years ago, when ART4GOOD Foundation, Inc. was created, I had a mission that was two-fold:  Realizing that the ART MARKET and ARTISTS suffered the harshest impact in a violatile economy, I spent several years acquiring the VERY FINEST ART from hundreds of artists from all over the world.
     
    We believe that ALL ART is PRICELESS; a gift from soul to soul!
    Our mission from the onset was to "Inspire Change With Every Brush Stroke!"
    We wanted to SHARE this HUGE collection of truly awesome art to help raise funds for charitable organizations.
     
    Our first call was to Bidding For Good, with the hope that we could offer our vast, multi-million dollar plus, diverse, inventory to their MARKETPLACE; to SHARE and SUPPORT their charitable organization clients.
     
    To date, we have raised tens of thousands of dollars donated to charities that we chose to be beneficiaries, primarily from SALES OF FINE ART!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  
    We really want to do more!
     
    BUT..."to no avail"......
    We've been told, again and again, by the "powers that be at BFG" that "art doesn't sell", even though YOU, the BIDDERS have proven that to be untrue.
      
    You have been bidding and winning truly collectible art, in tandem with wonderful art by burgeoning artists for over two and a half years now!
    On the "flip side", despite our devotion and investment of time to support numerous charitble organizations (as listed below), to date we have not been able to inspire THEM to INVITE their current supporters to participate!  Moreover, only 5 have ever even taken a moment to say THANK YOU for our ongoing donations! 
     
    A recent survey and focus group of constant donors and pledge partners from these charities provided some stunning insight to the recent behavior or lack of graciousness from many of our favorite charities on the planet!  
    Instead of responding "Thank you for your donation; here is how YOU helped", far too many people are bombarded with mail, telemarketers who simply demand MORE!
    I am not one to give up easily, but I have known for a while now that a change was eminent and necessary! 
     
    We do, of course, intend to recommence auctions including here on Bidding For Good in the Fall, and we will continue to endorse and recommend this site for charitible organizations to host their fundraising events! 
     
    WE ARE WORKING ON A NEW SOLUTION!   
    WE WANT EVERYONE TO WIN, everyone to benefit !  
     
    So, this summer, I will be devoting ALL OF MY TIME to achieving that goal!!
    As we look forward to our role in the new "OFF THE WALLS Wearable Art" line, and partnering with marketers throughout the world, these items can also be made available!
     
    In summary, we are a very small determined group of devoted volunteers who believe in giving back and supporting the world of the arts. We will enable charity auction clients to EXPAND their offerings, and because our inventory is so extensive, they won't need to "compete" with other auctions on the same site offering the same items!!  
    (Wouldn't that be awesome?)
     
    We look forward to a new horizon ahead that will benefit all, including a continual support for increased success for all of our loyal bidders and our friends at Bidding For Good!

    FINE ART AMERICA ROCKS! Have YOU been there yet?

    Fine Art America.com truly rocks!  Have YOU been there yet?

     

    HER LITTLE COLTAs a burgeoning artist, I began to create with a mission to give back!  As Founding Chairperson of ART4GOOD Foundation, I also wanted to "take a walk in the artists' shoes", and so I am constantly looking for opportuntities to expand our mission to "Inspire Change With Every Brush Stroke!"

    Recently, I discovered, that unlike most of the multiple artist web-sites out there, Fine Art America is not only efficient and affordable, but there are so many more opportunities for both the artists and the art collectors!

    Unique Surfaces too!  Whether you are shopping for a small framed print, or you are the more adventurous, cutting edge art collector, Fine Art America showcases the artists' works on Canvas, Metal, and Acrylic.  

    For those who still like to communicate with cards, what could be better than to send a card to a friend showcasing a newly discovered artist's work?

    So, I signed on.

    Until now, my works have been, exclusively, showcased on

    ART4GOOD Auctions!  

    Now, you can collect them

    HERE

    too!

    and...

    Coming Soon!

    We are also launching a gallery site for ART4GOOD Foundation on Fine Art America!  We will showcase our FAVORITES; works of art by all of our Artists Giving Back!

    Stay tuned!
