A Cry For Help

Thinkspace Gallery in LA is holding an awesome show called "A Cry For Help". 20% of all the profits are donated to Born Free - whose mission is to "end the suffering of wild animals in captivity, rescue individual animals in need, protect wildlife — including highly endangered species — in their natural habitats, and encourage compassionate conservation globally." The show runs from Jan. 8th, 2010 through Feb. 5th, 2010.

They have some really great artists participating in the show that it is hard to pick favorites. Here are a few of them. Make sure to check out the site - for other great ones.
