What’s this all about
Awareness with Art is an inaugural program that pulls together local Jacksonville artists, charities, and businesses to raise money for those who need it most in our community. Through an artistic twist in fundraising, Jacksonville BUZZ Magazine, The Art Center Coop., HandsOn Jacksonville, and Coordinated Benefits Group have partnered to create this unique initiative. A local artist will paint a BUZZ box to reflect their personal style of work; the partnering charity’s logo will also be placed on the box. The charities will find a local business that will sponsor their box for a minimum donation of $500, which will go directly to the charity.
Join the cause
You can participate in this fundraiser in many ways. First, cast your vote for your favorite BUZZ box on this website beginning in January! Keep an eye for the amazing artwork displayed on each of these boxes around town, and spread the word through the community to take part and help support talented artists and the charities that work hard to make the Jacksonville community an inspiring one.
Business – How you can help:
The local businesses that sponsor a particular charity/box will have the painted BUZZ box in front of their building for the year, which will help to bring attention to their location while also promoting charities and art in Jacksonville. BUZZ Magazine will match the business’s charity donation with a gift certificate for free advertising in the BUZZ. The business will also win a $500 cash prize and a $5,000 advertising package from the BUZZ, Client Focused Media, and Lowest Priced Promos if their BUZZ box is voted as the winner of the contest.
