the cairns

The Cairns is a philanthropic project that seeks to raise money for progressive causes while getting handmade pieces into people’s homes.

Purchasers of artwork from the Cairns choose the dollar amount they feel comfortable donating with 100% of the donation amount going to the organization of the month. There are no suggestive donation parameters, and all offers are accepted on a first come first served basis.

Cairns are rocks stacked on one another on hiking trails to indicated the path, and are often set by fellow hikers. The name was chosen as a symbol of safety, generosity and beauty, all themes that inspired this project.
