Our friends at the RABI have come up with great new fundraising idea that also focuses on bringing art into the countryside.
As RABI Regional Officer Milly Wastie explains, “the idea of ‘Art in the Box’ is to encourage farmers to clear out any spare loose boxes or stables they may have and turn them into miniature art galleries to host their own art exhibitions. It would be absolutely wonderful if farmers up and down the country get behind Art in the Box, it is a very straight forward event to organise, and one that could be hugely effective in raising much needed funds. Not only will ‘Art in the Box’ bring art into the countryside but it would also encourage people from towns and cities to venture into the country too.”
On the 12th February we'll be giving away two days’ free subscription to any member with an approved and visible profile. And this isn't some ‘subscribe-for-6-months-and-we'll-give-you-a-few-extra-days' gimmick either. It doesn't matter whether you've subscribed before or not; if you've filled out a profile and it's live and visible on the site, you'll be able to send and receive messages for free over the weekend of the 12th and 13th February. And if you're already a subscriber - don't worry - your two days will get added to the end of your current subscription.
