Community Messages

Please support our 1,000 plus advisors and their good works, some of which are listed in the “community news” below.

  • Virtual Art Gallery – Our new virtual art gallery is up on our main website. Our artist for the month for October is Loren Ellis http://florencebelskyfoundation.org/advisor-art-gallery/
  • ADVISOR NICOLE JOHNSON’S LAPTOP WAS STOLEN: A tragic loss as her computer is imperative to all the work she does with art, social justice, ally training and so many other things. Nicole without her laptop is like Thor without his hammer, Picasso without his paintbrush, Godzilla without a town to smash to smithereens. I was thinking it could be a really nice gift if we all chipped in and bought her a new laptop. I’ve looked into the price of her old laptop and the total comes to around $1000 with Tax. So if each of us gave only $5, we would more than achieve our goal. I’ve included the gofundme link below. With all the work she’s been doing lately, I know she’d be beyond grateful if we could come together to make this happen. She’d do it for you. She probably already has. https://www.gofundme.com/f/replace-nicole039s-computer?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_campaign=p_cf+share-flow-1
