This year at the festivals Amdur Productions has started a new
charity initiative called the Green Ribbon Project. The project
connects the festival with an important cause and aims to stimulate art
buying at the festival. Participating artists put a green ribbon on a
piece of their choice in their booth and when the piece is sold the
artist agrees to give 10% of the proceeds to the Spinal Cord Association
of Illinois, which is the dedicated charity for the Chicago Botanic
Garden Art Festival. Founded in
1979, the mission of the Spinal Cord Injury Association of Illinois
(SCIA) is to serve as a comprehensive resource center for individuals
who have been personally affected by paralysis, those working in related
fields, and other interested persons. The mission also includes
working to prevent new injuries from happening. SCIA seeks
to fulfill this mission through a combination of services including
Information and Referral, Peer Support, Education and Injury Prevention.
