Taking Death Out of the Immigration Equation
As part of Yellow Peril Gallery’s commitment to social responsibility, we donate a percentage from the sale of all artwork to a charitable organization of our exhibiting Artists’ choice.
Rebecca A. Kandel has selected HUMANE BORDERS as the recipient of her donation.
At the Gallery Night Opening Reception for BORDERLINE on Thursday, November 17, 2011 from 5 PM to 9 PM, we will also host a Silent Auction featuring photographs generously donated by the Artist to raise funds to support Humane Borders.
Founded in June 2000 to create a safe and death-free border environment, Humane Borders deploys emergency water stations on routes known to be used by migrants coming north through the desert that separates the United States from Mexico. They note that their sole mission is to “take death out of the immigration equation” with their water tanks, which are strategically placed to provide clean water to migrants crossing the border.
Since hundreds of volunteers work round the clock to bring the organization’s mission to life, service the water stations, staff their offices in Tucson, perform maintenance on their equipment and other tasks, Human Borders relies heavily on financial and in-kind donations.
