A little late in posting this as the first raffle has already taken place, but there are another 11 still to take place. London based artist Mike Marcus has organized the Street Art Charity Raffle. Each Saturday, a different artist will volunteer a work and suggest a charity which the proceeds will go to. A photograph of this work will be posted to the Street Art London flickr group and tickets will be available until the following friday via paypal at £1 each. There will be no limit set on the amount of tickets available and each individual can purchase as many as he or she wants.
The winning ticket will be picked at random at the end each week the full proceeds will be transferred to the chosen charity.
The schedule for the next 10 weeks is as follows:
Saturday 3rd January - Gemma Compton(pictured above)
