Toronto based artist Mark Jeremy Gleberzon has started a campaign to raise the money following the tragic events at the Orlando Night Club for the families of the victims and other charities helping LGBT community in Orlando and Toronto.  Below is my mixed media 10"x 10" that I made for the auction and that went the highest bidder.

 

Mark, who is also the owner of MJG Gallery has partnered with Waddington's Auctioneers & Appraisers of Toronto, who generously waved their usual fee for this online auction and together with more than 80 local Toronto artists who jumped on board and donated their art for the cause, we raised over 14,000 ! 
The event that was totally spontaneous and went viral was mentioned by various press and covered by TV news. Article in The Star newspaper:
