Anyone can buy their work via The Art of Helping online auction site, and assist in this humanitarian eﬀort. 100% of all funds raised by this auction will go to help Chileans in their hour of need.
“On behalf of myself and all the other artists who are participating, thank you for oﬀering your help to Chile!” says Mr. Burton.
