From the beginning I felt my art should be a part of giving back to the community, specifically to children who have been affected by sexual and emotional abuse. Every year I donate a portion of my proceeds, as well as art prints to organizations benefiting children in need. My mission is to bring joy to children who have experienced so much sadness.
Over the last four years I have donated hundreds of art prints to hospitals, orphanages, and other non-profit organizations throughout the United States, Guatemala, Haiti, India, and other places around the world, places where children need happiness, brightness and color.
In July of 2014, I became acquainted with Operation Underground Railroad. I was very excited when I found out that 20 of my art prints went with the Operation Underground Railroad rescue team on their mission to the Dominican Republic. In that mission they were able to rescue 26 children and put 9 individuals behind bars.
I want to continue to help this amazing organization. So I have started a fundraising campaign as follows:
For Level 1 Donations of $10.00 - you will receive a personalized thank you from Judith Raye.
For Level 2 Donations of $50.00 - you will receive 5 blank note cards from the Judith Raye collection
For Level 3 Donations of $100.00 - you will receive a coupon code redeemable at www.judithraye.com for purchase of one art print ready to frame.
For Level 4 Donations of $500.00 or more - you will receive a coupon code redeemable at www.judithraye.com for purchase of any gallery wrapped canvas print up 12"x12" in size.
For Level 5 Donations of $1000.00 or more - you will receive a coupon code redeemable at www.judithraye.com for purchase of any gallery wrapped canvas print up to 24"x24" in size.

Elephants never forget! Last month I saw an amazing story about two circus elephants who endured years of abuse and neglect, at last finding sanctuary in Tennessee at the Elephant Sanctuary. Their names are Shirley and Jenny. It was so precious to see that they had not forgotten each other after all those years apart.Most of [...]
