Photographer Chuck Anderson is donating 100 percent of online sales to Haiti earthquake relief. This print for example, called Lights for Drowning, is 18" x 24" and costs $45 plus shipping. See all the work for sale here. Rafael Soldi of Bonni Benrubi Gallery in New York has organized the Haiti Relief Benefit Print Sale, which you can see by clicking here. Emerging photographers have donated prints which will be sold online for $50 each, with all proceeds going to Yele Haiti, the grassroots organization established by Wyclef Jean to bring global awareness to the country. Rafael writes: "We don't have a lot of money but our talent and creativity we got for free, and together we can raise up to $8,000. This is a great way to collect art, support emerging photographers, and help Haiti in one fell swoop, so we hope you'll consider it." For info: firstname.lastname@example.org.

All items have been donated by the crafting community and all proceeds will benefit Doctors Without Borders in Haiti. Pictured: Twin Angels by Erika Ashley.
