UPDATE: TAMMY HAS TERMINATED HER FUNDRAZR.
But you can still read about it!
Do you want to help Tammy? Check this link to go to her Fundrazr.
" I have FundRazr campaign to help me pay rent and bills while I take time to rest, regain my health and pursue creative goals while not needing the full time work which is harming my health (I DO intend to take part time work).For those who cannot or don´t wish to donate, please consider at least sharing the link on your (Facebook) profile or page...every bit helps"Well, she needs a hand. Maybe you're an artist struggling to make your dream come through also. Maybe you already know it's not easy. Maybe you wished you had some help too while trying to achieve your goals! Here's some more of her Facebook timeline:
"I have created a campaign on FundRazr ...It is hard having health problems, struggling to achieve creative goals, and still being forced to work full time on top of that.I am confident that I am on the verge of being able to make my creative pursuits my full time career. But I can't do it while I am spending 11 hours a day at another job which harms my health (I have a number of physical and emotional conditions aggravated by working on my feet with the public all day.)"
It's impossible not to admire Tammy's determination. I also know that it takes courage to ask strangers and friends for money. Or even family. I and my sister had to do it recently. Her dog got sick and she couldn't afford the surgery. I suggested to fund raise over the internet but she disliked the idea. I wasn't confortable about it either. But then we did it. We had no choice. And we and got help. So I hope Tammy Winand gets lucky too. What can you do to help Tammy?
1. Please share this postage - you can't imagine how time consuming and wearying it is to spread the word. For 100 contacts I made for Davis I got 1-2 donations for our dog.
2. Send Tammy one dollar. Many people don't do that because they feel it's insignificant. I can assure you that is not. Send something, send what you can, IF YOU CAN.
3.Promote Tammy Winand's artistic work.
"I create art and photography focused on connections. Connections between the past and the present, between different cultures, between man and nature, even between colors and forms.And here's some of her photographic work from Cryptic Fragments Zazzle Store. Tammy has more stores online. Please, check her stores, promote her stores. Your help is precious and crucial for Tammy at this stage of her life. If you're a Zazzler then you're part of a community. Let's show some Zazzle solidarity. You know what? We have a beautiful Portuguese poem (from poet Ary dos Santos) that reads Natal é quando um homem quiser = It can be Christmas when a man wants.We're almost in December. Let's start Christmas earlier!
I am strongly influenced by the architecture and handicrafts of ancient civilizations, by sacred spaces, the native traditions of unique world cultures, and by the power of nature to reclaim what man has built into the landscape. My goal is to translate my life experience and journey through symbolism which can be interpreted by a broad audience.
Through my work, I hope to inspire others to reach for their dreams and live full rich lives."
