Please help...................

Turtles one of my favorite animals of the sea, are in danger in the Golf of Mexico.
Danger caused by human beings.
I am participating in a fundraiser for the animals in the Gulf left to fend for themselves in this more than sticky, life-threatening situation.
These ATC's are sold for $10, all proceeds going to either The Institute For Marine Mammal Studies (http://www.imms.org/) or The International Bird Rescue Research Center (http://www.ibrrc.org/).
Every penny raised will go to these organizations. When the card sells we are emailed the name of the buyer/donor and we sign them and mail them with our thanks and blessings.
This idea is inspired by Kelly Light. Visit this blog athttp://ripplesketches.blogspot.com/2010/06/mandalas-for-hope.html
to see what all of these wonderful artists are doing to help the cause.
Beside these turtles of mine there are so many wonderful ATC's to pick from!
I saw Lolo's beautiful post and Diana's. This inspired me to help.
Hope you will be too.
Please help to save the beautiful creatures in the once blue water...............


  1. Hi Marianne! I spotted these already over on the Ripple Blog! Beautiful contributions - so glad you had time to do these before your big adventure!

  2. These are so lovely Marianne. Best wishes with all of the artists efforts! I will go over and have a look, for sure! Yours will sell in 5 seconds. God bless you!!!

  3. I knew you would do something beautiful! I saw the mandala sold right away.
    I emailed Kelly for the address for the one I sold but she's so overwhelmed! She didn't realize how flooded she'd be with this response and she feels it's a lot for one person to handle. I don't know how to help her other than what I did.

    I miss you when you're busy ;)
    I hope camp is fun!


  4. Thank you for helping Marianne....these are lovely and poignant.

    I miss you!
