A dear friend of mine made a decision for her birthday to ask for donations to a charity close to her heart instead of gifts.
I find that both amazing and humbling; and have decided to donate all proceeds of this print in 2019 to the Utah 1033 Foundation.
You can read more information on this charity at this link. I chose this release because Standing Alone is what these men and women do on a daily basis, to protect the community at large.
In Mona's own words:
Utah has already lost an officer in 2019, and raising money and awareness for this worthy cause has never been so important. I've chosen this nonprofit because their mission means a lot to me, and I hope you'll consider contributing as a way to celebrate with me and honor our fallen heroes and their families. Every little bit will help me reach my goal. I've included information about Utah 1033 Foundation below.
The Utah 1033 Foundation is dedicated to preserving the memory of Utah peace officers who tragically sacrifice their very lives in the line of duty, and to providing meaningful financial and educational assistance for the families they leave behind."
