Join an art auction to raise funds for Climate activist movie

Just Bid It: an art auction in support of the independent documentary film, Just Do
It
. Launches 3rd May on Ebay. Find us here:http://shop.ebay.co.uk/justdoitfilm/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=

Top street artists, including the infamous subvertiser dr d (our very own art
director) responsible for those cheeky billboards, Carrie Reichardt - the Baroness
famed for having turned her home into a live-in mosaic art work, and
kennardphillipps, the collaboration that produced the startling "photo-op" image in
response to the invasion of Iraq, have donated work to the auction. Support a truly
independent project and nab yourself some great art.

As you will know all too well by now, this film is a completely independent,
grassroots project, which has got this far thanks to the generosity and support of
our crowd. We've hit a massive milestone and the film is now locked - a huge
achievement. But now that the film is almost ready to be seen, we are, yet again,
running dangerously low on funds. So we're calling on our crowd to pitch in - you
can help us get this film out there.

Top street artists have donated work to support the film including the film's art
director Dr D, Carrie Reichardt, The Krah, John Wild, Mike Marcus, kennardphillipps,
War Boutique, Bastardilla and Know Hope. There's also the chance to nab yourself a
special edition limited run Just Do It print, made possible by the wonderful
Calverts.

The auction will run in three separate lots so if you don't win the art you want
first time round, therell be two further chances to bid for something else. Some
artists have donated more than one piece of work, so if someone outbids you, why not
try again. If at first you dont succeed'and all that..

What's up for grabs?

Round 1: Tuesday 3rd May - Monday 9th May
Round 2: Monday 9th - Sunday 15th
Round 3: Friday 13th (lucky for some) - Thursday 19th

So go on, join our crowd; place your bid, support this totally independent project
and win some great art while you're at it. The first round is live NOW. You can find
us here.

Art by: Carrie Reichardt, Dr D, The Krah, Bastardilla, John Wild, kennardphillipps,
Mike Marcus, War Boutique, and Know Hope.
