Canvas For Charity – Alberta Canvas Printer Auctions To Support Sexual Violence Victims

It’s always good to hear when businesses step up in order to provide a helping hand towards its customers, signifying a desire to provide more for their community, and rewarding the trust its customers put into them.

In the town of Vermillion in Alberta, Canada, one of the best canvas prints from B.C. Photo, dubbed the ‘Old GMC‘, is being auctioned away, in order to drum up support and funding for the LSAIC (Lloydminster Sexual Assault and Information Centre). The endeavor has turned the company’s canvas print into a symbol for the cause.

The owner of company, one Ms. Bree Patterson, who also happens to be the primary photographer for the Alberta company, collaborated with Elevation, for the Photo For A Cause Online Auction, an online fundraiser. Whilst, as a fundraiser, its aim is to raise funds for the LSAIC, it is also designed to create a starting point for discussions about the sensitive topic of sexual violence.

The LSAIC was established in order to intervene and give aid to people suffering from sexual violence, regardless of age and gender. The LSAIC covers a notably large area for an organization of its structure, covering a radius of 200km from their headquarters in Lloydminster.

Ms. Patterson has stated his beliefs about discussing sexual violence, that it is a topic most people are afraid to discuss, and that people also erroneously assume that men are not victimized by sexual assault. He states that organizations like the LSAIC and their causes are worth supporting, and it is important to do so when people tend to simply brush such issues aside.

According to data released by the Alberta Sexual Assault Services shows that around 40% and approximately 10-20% of women and men, respectively have been victims of sexual assault since their adolescent years (around the age of 16). Disturbingly, the data also stated that more than half of Canadian women and a third of Canadian men have encountered sexual abuse in their childhood years, one way or the other.

Ms. Patterson has stated that she sees the auction as a great way to be involved in a crusade she finds worthy, a great way, she thinks, to start off the year of 2017.

The ‘Old GMC’ print was selected from the company’s best canvas prints, and was chosen for its general appeal. Patterson herself has stated that the print blends well with other pieces and fits a lot of aesthetics.
