You mean the generation that paid three times as much for college to enter a job market with triple the unemployment isn’t interested in purchasing the assets of the generation who just blew an enormous housing bubble and kept it from popping through quantitative easing and out-and-out federal support? Curious.

My friend Jenna has left an abusive domestic situation and is looking to relocate and start a new life for herself and her cat. She’s in a temporary home and is currently out of work. I’d like help her raise money for this move, so here’s what I’m going to do:
I haven’t taken commissions in over two years, but I am auctioning an original sculpture, character of your choice, style of your choice and will donate all proceeds to Jenna’s relocation fund.
Here are some examples of my work:
(More pics of these and other pieces at my site, JFSculpts.com)
The winning bidder will receive one original sculpture, character and style of their choice, hand-painted, on its own ready-to-display stand.
I’m going to start the bidding at $300. Here’s how it will work:
- Email me at jfsculptsemail01 (at) gmail.com with your bid and what character/style you would like
- I will update my site, JFSculpts.com with the amount of the current highest bid
- Winner will donate their winning bid to Jenna’s fundraiser page
- 4-6 weeks from that time, the winner will receive their sculpture
- I’ve decided to extend the bidding and do one more, so if you missed the initial deadline I’m keeping the auction open a little longer
It’s that easy!
Jenna is my hero. I hope to help her get back on her feet. Please help if you can, by bidding, spreading the word with social media, or by donating directly.
UPDATE: I see there’s suddenly some new activity on this posts, so if anyone wants to contact me ( jfsculptsemail01 (at) gmail.com) with another bid (to be done after the winning bid, so sometimes in April/May), let me know.
Keep spreading the word and donate if you can: $10, $5, whatever you can spare. Every bit helps. Thank you!
