I wanted to make these available for anyone who has a website and would like to put a link to places people can go for help or information about the terrorist attack.

The ribbon can also be used to show support even if it's not linked to anything.

I use the large one on my site. I have linked to the "Disaster response: How you can help" page at MSN.
http://specials.msn.com/special/help.asp
This site seems to be the most accurate and reliable place to find information.

Please feel free to use these graphics if you wish.

Keep well
Karen

thanks for the ribbon graphic. For some reason, my computer said not allowed because of nudity content. ???? I've never even set my pc to that, so I don't know why. Doesn't make sense to me.

I assume it was a regular msn site.
:rolleyes:

Karen, just wanted to say that I tried some msn. sites from search and it is evidently my crazy computer that has decided to censor things. Who knows?? Thanks.

I'm not sure what is happening with the MSN sites for you.
I have another site where you can find information, although it is still an MSN site, perhaps you can get into this one:
http://msnbc.com/news/627095_asp.htm?0ql=cbp
(btw: the MSN sites are news sites and they do often have gory stories and pictures that you may not want your children to see)

Cafe Press has also set up a short list of some of the official sites where people can find help at: http://www.cafepress.com/cp/info/tragedy.aspx

I have avoided listing the "unofficial" sites, because the sad truth is there are some sites that are (hopefully inadvertantly) posting incorrect or misleading statements and facts.

I also want to mention that Cafe Press is also setting up stores where all proceeds from the stores (including profits from CafePress.com) will be donated to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.
http://www.cafepress.com

I know that there will be many more places that will be offering assistance.

I am glad to see everyone sharing their feelings here through their art and words.
If anyone would like to share your artwork or poetry concerning this disaster with more people, I know there was a member here who had offered to set up an on-line gallery.
(I'm sorry I can't remember who it was, I'll try looking through the post again)

I will also be setting up a gallery if anyone would like to email me.

Thank you to everyone who has emailed and shared their concern and sympathy and our prayers go out to everyone who has lost a loved one.

Keep well
Karen

My appologies to Jule for not remembering where I had seen the post.

I just wanted to repost this message because as an artist, I feel that our art can be a theriputic form of expression and I want everyone to know that they have places to express themselves.

Please think about an international internet, online art exhibition where we all send in images protesting about the carnage and stupidity of all that has to do with terrorism...what do you think?

If you would like to send an international visual protest by doing the above
please send me your email messages to [email protected] and I will take it from there. I can advertise it in Australia as well as on the net (my husband can start a web page) and if we get as many artists as we can doing this and advertising it to all the art sites and friends they can think of - what a wonderful, visually powerful thing it will be...
let me know and I will reply in due course.

cheers julie fearns pheasant

No matter where you decide to gather, remember you have many friends who are ready to help anyway they can.
