For over 20 years, Jones Soda has had a long-standing relationship with photographers and other artists who submit their work for the chance to be featured on our labels. It only made sense to partner with Artist Trust to help bring relief to local artists in Washington State during this time of need.
Artist Trust is a nonprofit organization that supports and encourages artists of all disciplines throughout Washington State. Recently, they launched COVID-19 rapid relief efforts to help artists whose livelihoods have been impacted.
What are we doing to support the arts?
In April, we took photo submissions of artwork on gallery.jonessoda.com. For every artwork submission, a donation went towards Artist Trust's relief efforts.
Starting in May, the photo with the most votes as well as one chosen by the Jones team is being sold as a special MyJones custom bottle packs. A portion of those proceeds will also go towards Artist Trust's relief efforts (up to $10,000).
The photo with most votes was submitted by Madison Rosenbaum from Kennewick, WA called "life thriving in the dark."
The photo chosen by the Jones team was submitted by Ryan Reinike from Biloxi, MS called "Call to arms for arts."
Be sure to check out the limited time series for purchase! When you buy this 12-pack, you're helping local artists.
