The call went out to Artists of the Big Bend, and they responded generously, donating images of their work to be featured on greeting cards and offered as perks for donations.  From a high school student to those of the more experienced years, from locals to folks for whom Big Bend has found a special place in the heart, we received stunning images that are yours to keep as art, or can be sent to someone special. 

Donate Today and claim your perk:

2 cards for a $25 donation

4 cards for a $50 donation

8 cards (+1 bonus) for a $100 donation

16 cards (+2 bonus) for a $200 donation

Each card is 5 x 7 and comes with a mailing envelope. Each individual donation will contain no duplicates. We are unable to fill requests for a special artist or image-- so if you want a particular one, go for the entire collection!

Please take a look at our sampling of artists, and if you like their work, go to their webpage or email them to ask about that image or others you might like to purchase. We appreciate the generosity of these artists and hope to help them, as well!

Unite the Big Bend through Art

"Artists are super sensitive to the world. Seeing humanity experience collective grief devastated me, but art heals, and sharing my painting of sanctuary in the wilderness offers a dose of much needed joy for my soul, and hopefully, for the spirits of others."

- Lindy Cook Severns

"I just really wanted to help the people who have suffered because of Covid-19,
and I am really happy that my art can help do that."

- Big Bend High School Student

 

"Fighting an invisible foe requires more than just tweets."

– Charlton Vaughan

 

"So many need financial help in Brewster County, where we live.
I am honored to have my art utilized to raise funds for this worthy cause."

- Kathleen Griffith

 

"Our region of Texas is full of natural wonders, including very talented artists, musicians, and writers.
We are all changing the way we interact with those wonders and especially each other.
Hopefully my art is a proper thank you for people's generosity during this time."

- Patsy Culver

We need to help our residents who are struggling during this crisis

 

Big Bend  is beloved by Texans for its beautiful landscapes and eclectic people, but the COVID-19 pandemic is devastating this region’s economy and straining its limited resources. Big Bend Citizens Alliance, a non-profit organization with volunteers from Alpine, Terlingua and Lajitas, started the Big Bend COVID-19 Pandemic Relief Fund to help Brewster County residents recover from these hardships by offering grants for citizens in need.

 

The impact of Covid-19 on our residents

More than a quarter of our county's population depends on the tourism and service industry for income. Small businesses, bartenders, restaurant and hotel workers, tour guides, park employees, hairdressers, massage therapists, retail salespeople, artists, musicians, and college students are all struggling to make ends meet. An unexpected quarantine or illness can be a devastating blow to the finances of people who are already struggling.

 

Donate Today and feel the joy of giving:

Thanks for setting up this fund for our community!

It's the least I can do to help the special people in a very special place survive in these odd times.

100% of funds raised will go to local organizations that meet basic needs or directly to residents who fall through gaps in other programs, such as service workers who still have to pay rent while they shelter-in-place to stop the spread of the virus.

Make a difference in the Big Bend

Community-driven grants to help local residents.

"This means so much to me. Every little bit helps and I deeply appreciate the assistance of my community. As time goes by I will do my best to pay forward this assistance."

"We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the help. We have never before in our lives needed to receive help from anyone. We usually are the ones giving help to our employees, family, friends, and even strangers."

We hope everyone who loves the Big Bend will help our region recover from these unprecedented crises by supporting our relief fund. If you cannot afford to give there are other ways to help by volunteering or sharing our message. Please Follow us on Facebook
