Josean Rivera has designed a watercolor drawing of the cards that were used in this effort. The original watercolor has been sent to his family, who will receive a portion of all sales of this print. An additional portion of sales will be donated to The Mockingbird Foundation

This art is printed on cardstock and measures 6″x8″ in a limited edition of 50, with each print signed by the artist. You can buy them via Etsy.
