52 Reasons to Love a Vet now at Normal Rockwell Museum + signed prints for a good cause

52 Reasons to Love a Vet is a cause started by a peer and friend Ella Rue, who is a mother of a veteran, and Director of Marketing for Academic Programs and Events at New Jersey City University. I met Ella during my school visit/lecture trip to NJCU a few years back.
Multiple artists, who are friends of Ella as well as supporter of the cause, donated original artworks that are made into limited edition signed prints, signed books as well as decks of playing cards, to be sold and fund The Hunterdon Healthcare Foundation. The HHF fund financially assist veterans for furthering their education and/or assisting with medical, dental or mental health resources.

The show exhibiting the original works will be traveling to Norman Rockwell Museum. The show opens on November 7, 2015, and continues till January 5, 2016.

You can purchase the products and support the cause at the museum during the show. Or you can make the purchase and support the veterans through 52 Reasons to Love a Vet online store.  Shipping within continental US is included to all purchases. The image below is my contribution.
autographed prints: $55 each
playing cards with all the art: $25 a deck
book with all the art: $45 (unsigned) or $205 (signed by all the artists)
They would make fantastic holiday gift for your family and friends who support the cause.

at Norman Rockwell Museum is on Saturday November 7, 2015 from 6:00 – 8:00PM and will be attended by many participating artists. (Unfortunately, I won’t be able to make it due to my foreign business trip.)
