A SPECIAL 22 FUNDRAISER FILM FROM JEFF BURNS.

Every wondered why 22? Here’s a couple of fun reasons from Jeff Burns, cohort in Gratuitous Art Films and Vol. 1 Contributor.

More than ever we appreciate the unique, unusual, weird in life and we’re willing to share it. The 22 Magazine brings together folks worldwide.

Different viewpoints equals fun art.

New York can be an intimidating place but it can also be a home. To keep these unique, incredible artists, writers and musicians from New York and otherwise around, we need your help.

Please consider donating, even something very small. We are still struggling to meet our goal and we know there are folks out there reading!  We’re not asking for much. A few dollars goes a long way. We’ve added a $5 and a $250 option to the donation and you’ll note a very awesome tote bag or t-shirt is available at the $250 level from contributor and comic artist, John Jennison.

We know, it seems like a-lot but it’s just the tip of the iceberg. There are so many amazing projects we’d like to really give a jumpstart to and your’s could very likely be one of them.

Thanks for listening again and please consider giving today.
