Many artists and creative people lost all of their belongings in the October 2017 Wildfire Disaster in the North Bay. The impact will be felt for many more months to come, if not years. This program has been created to help those people and families. While absolutely nothing can replace all the belongings and countless memories, hopefully this program will provide the creative people impacted by the fires with some form of relief and happiness as they move through their healing and rebuilding process.
Rileystreet Art Supply will be extending the discounts listed below to any person or family that has lost their home during the North Bay Wildfire Disaster.
40%OFF all regular priced items (storewide)
60%OFF all open stock artist brushes
70%OFF all stretched canvas
35%OFF all everyday discounted paint prices* (does not apply to bulk/sale paint discounts)
All discounts will be good until
February 28th, 2018. Due to the circumstances that so many impacted people are experiencing, Rileystreet is extending this program through May 31st, 2018. We hope this will help impacted people and businesses while they continue to trudge through the rebuilding process.
This program is only for people that have lost their homes and belongings. We will ask for a name, address and phone number. No information will be used for any sort of marketing or advertising. We are sorry to have to ask for the address, but unfortunately there are actually people out there that will try to abuse this program.
If you have any questions about this program please feel free to call us at 707-526-2416(santa rosa) or 415-457-2787(san rafael) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
DIDN’T LOSE EVERYTHING BUT WANT TO HELP THOSE THAT DID?
We want to extend a huge thank you to everyone that donated to our fund supporting creative individuals that were directly impacted by the fires. The response was genuinely amazing!
As this fund has been more or less depleted we have decided to refer all future donations to Creative Sonoma. Creative Sonoma is an amazing organization that focuses solely on the creative community of Sonoma County. Information can be found at creativesonoma.org.
