Bucks resident creates COVID-19 art fundraiser

Posted

Longtime Bucks County resident LisaBeth Weber has created an art fundraiser to help with the dire need for PPE (personal protection equipment) during the coronavirus crisis.

One hundred percent of all funds received are being sent to Direct Relief (top rated by Charity Navigator). Direct Relief is coordinating with public health authorities, nonprofit organizations and businesses to provide PPE and essential medical items to COVID-19 frontline health-care workers.

Currently, they are working on shipping N95 masks and other PPE to as many as 1,000 hospitals, community health centers, and free clinics in all 50 U.S. states.

An artist, writer-marketer and musician, Weber created downloadable art for the fundraiser she describes as a “Donate What You Can” campaign. Any amount, from $5 to $50 or more, will help, she said.

“I wanted to find a way to help spread the word, not the virus,” said Weber. “I created this art so that people could donate, then share it through social media, and also print on their home printers and place it in a window.”

Facebook and Instagram users are updating their profile pictures with Weber’s “Stay Home - Save Lives” image to share and show support.

To donate and get the .jpg file, go to lisabethweber.com/covid19fundraiser. Inquiries for other uses of the art and for information on making larger donations directly to the nonprofit on behalf of this campaign can be sent to create@lisabethweber.com.
