i saw my friends alie and drew this weekend. they’re going to sudan in less than a month and they’re still raising money. if you were thinking about buying a print, do it now! i bought one for my mom and two for myself. good for: world traveler types, people who love art, anyone who wants to give to a good cause while geting something incredible in return.

my great friends alie and drew are going to spend the summer in sudan doing relief work. in addition to being humanitarians they’re also both talented photographers. prints of their travels are for sale on alie’s etsy, all proceeds go toward the cost of their trip. these would be perfect for a belated mother’s day gift.
