Magic judge Paul Baranay collaborated with Magic art collectors to launch a fundraiser aimed at supporting charities that work toward social justice.
The #MagicArtChallenge kicked off on Monday with the goal of raising funds for organizations like the Center for Black Equity, The Okra Project, and the NAACP’s Legal Defense Fund. Magic art collectors are auctioning off pieces with all the proceeds going to fight for social justice. Original art of Revitalize from Matt Stewart, Grenzo, Dungeon Warden by Lucas Graciano, and Phantom Warrior by Greg Staples headline some of the pieces available that also includes sketches and pottery. Check out all the art up for grabs at the #MagicArtChallenge website.
So far the initiative has raised more than $19,000 in just a few days with more art being added. If you want to help but aren’t interested in art, you can also donate directly on the site. And, in July, the second part of the fundraiser called #SecondMainPhase will start. Instead of art, this fundraiser will action off Magic collectibles ranging from over-sized cards, classic booster packs, promo cards, and whatever else people offer up as donations.
