Gulf Charity Poster

As oil continues to leak in the Gulf of Mexico and the powers that be continue to seem, well, powerless, we all wait impatiently wishing we could do something—anything—to lend a hand. The Heads of State designed the Gulf Charity Poster hoping, with your help, it can make a small impact on the growing devastation. This two color serigraph is an intial run of 200, signed and hand numbered.

They’re donating 50% of the profits from their Oil Drop poster (thats $20 per poster) to Oceana, the largest organization solely focused on protecting the world’s oceans. Oceana has been awarded the exceptional rating of 4 stars by Charity Navigator, which means you can feel good knowing your money is having a direct impact.

  1. Tumblr have launched a nice initiative helping people easily donate $5 without even leaving their dashboard, with a small incentive and the promise to match each donation like for like. Nice one tumblr!

    Feels like things are picking up in the ‘design response’ arena for the slick, still a long way behind the Haiti response though (understandably).

  2. Half of the sale of each poster is going to the Gulf, meaning $20 per poster (as opposed to just half the profit). Just wanted to point out the distinction so it doesn’t appear as if they are being stingy :)

  3. Unfortunately, this is just a drop in the ocean.

  4. Reminds me very much on a poster by Mario Suter from 2003:

  5. Rehash of a poster they did some time ago. Go check out their portfolio. At least do something original.
