Thanks for checking out the Creators 4 A Cause charity art auction for suicide and mental health awareness, hosted in honor of Desmond “Etika” Amofah.
Creators 4 A Cause is an ever changing group of artists who hope that through the sale of their art and creations, they can play a small part in affecting real change in the world. The sale of every item from this charity art auction is being donated directly to the JED Foundation for Mental Health Awareness and Suicide Prevention for teens and young adults. JED Foundation has been chosen as our charity of choice, as it has a perfect rating for trust and honesty on Charity Navigator, and relates directly to the cause we are fundraising for.
Desmond “Etika” Amofah was a popular online video game streamer and internet celebrity. His funny videos and infectious laughter captivated the hearts of millions of people around the world. Unfortunately, Etika decided to take his own life after dealing with mental health issues for many months. We are raising funds in his honor.
Included pieces up for auction are custom canvases, pearler bead art, custom joy-cons, custom Amiibo and more! Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available, and we look forward to seeing your support on August 15th!
