Tears For Ukraine

"Ukrainian refugees evacuating their war-torn home.
A mother and her two daughters leave all their worldly possessions in their bombed-out apartment building, leaving behind the life they knew in search of a new one and peace.”
I was shocked and devastated by the outbreak of war on my birthday February 24, 2022, thinking how could there be such evil in the world on such a grand scale again - unthinkable cruelty and ignorance. And I continue to be shocked that the world efforts have not been able to stop this atrocity.
Various views and details...
I would like to donate the sale of this work to a fundraising platform with ALL proceeds going to help Stand With Ukraine.
Retail value is $4800, but I am hoping it could collect more for this humanitarian cause.
I am currently looking for brainstorming ideas of ways to accomplish this goal.
Another idea is when this horrible war is over, this would make a wonderful monumental PUBLIC ART WORK commemorating the resilience and tenacity of the Ukraine people. Currently, I use laser scanners and 3D printers to enlarge works to any size. But I would need to have access to this work in order to accomplish that some day. Just a thought.
