Art for Masks = Masks for Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

Hope you are well. As you might expect, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) is well-equipped to deal with delivering world class treatment even during a pandemic. However, they are working to grow their #PPE stockpile to ensure that all patients and visitors have proper protection. It is projected to be a long-term need.


In April I pledged to use 100% of all art sale proceeds through the end of 2020 to purchase face masks for Children's Hospital of Philadelphia through the The LIV Foundation #COVID Response Fund. Since then several commission requests have come in and we have raised just over $2,000, delivered 137 homemade masks (donated by mask makers) and have another 100 masks in queue ready for delivery. Additionally, I just started a Birthday Fundraiser and another $225 in donations and counting! We are on pace to get well over 1,000 masks to CHOP and I have a personal goal of growing this to over 2,020 masks by the end of the year 2020.


We have a long list of friends and family that we care deeply for who undergo treatment at CHOP or work there. This is one of a handful of ways we feel we can help. If you are interested in helping you can do so in one of three ways:


  1. Make a donation to my Facebook Birthday Fundraiser: Click Here

  2. Contact me if you wish to donate homemade masks in-kind at tmichaelniemanart@gmail.com; or

  3. If you are interested in purchasing a painting or commissioning a custom painting reach out to me at tmichaelniemanart@gmail.com as well.

Here are some of my more recent paintings. All of these and more are presently available for sale.



Thank you for taking the time. Have a great day & be well, Tom

Over 1,400 additional masks have been shipped to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. That brings the totals for our drive to 1,949. We are shooting for 2,020+. Looks like we have a good shot at hitting and/or exceeding that goal. Thanks to all who have helped!

Also will add... have had several patrons who are mask makers barter. They made and donated masks and I gave them a painting of commensurate value (or they commissioned a painting).
