gofundme: Boyz-n-Ivy Medical Fund
September 1, 2015
Check out the GOFUNDME campaign I started for my friends Tom and Raymond: http://www.gofundme.com/boyznivy. They are amazing artists and human beings.
Our boyz (artist Tom Thoune and photographer/chef Raymond Grubb) and their dog Ivy need help paying their medical and vet bills. Tom suffered a stroke last November, Raymond lost his job and Ivy had to have one of her eyes surgically removed.
Although Tom has made constant progress over the past nine months — relearning how to draw, sculpt and paint and going from walker to yoga to jogging with Ivy — he has not recovered 100%. After a long delay due to his caregiver responsibilites for Tom, Raymond has started freelancing again, focusing on platinum paladium portraits. Both are looking for more work. (One-eyed Ivy hasn't missed a beat.)
We've set up this fund so friends can help Tom and Raymond offset the cost of medical bills and loss of income. Your donation is also a great way to thank them for their countless contributions to the Charlotte art community over the past three decades. Our lives are much richer because of them. Commissioning or purchasing Tom's artwork or Raymond's photographs is another great way to show your support!
