Alix Greenberg, founder of Portraits for Good, an online platform that empowers artists to make art while simultaneously doing good notes that:
I've always thought of myself as an artist, more than an entrepreneur. But a few years ago I realized that, while artists have long stood for important causes, they've lacked a way to directly impact the causes that mattered to them most. That's why I created Portraits for Good.
What makes Portraits for Good unique is that proceeds from every purchase are donated to a non-profit of the purchaser’s choice. Since launching the site, they have helped to support amazing organizations like Doctors Without Borders, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and the ASPCA.
Each artist on the site has selected original art or limited edition prints that showcase their unique artistic style. Not sure where to start? They will work one-on-one with you to find the perfect gift for the person in mind. Select a piece of art or commission a custom work, choose a non-profit to receive a portion of proceeds, and they will deliver your art framed and ready to display!
I'm probably gonna try it myself soon - will let you know how it does!
