Vital Impacts proposes to “collect art and support the planet”. The project is the brainchild of award-winning photographer Ami Vitale and visual journalist Eileen Mignoni. This women-led nonprofit organization provides financial support and amplifies the stories of community organizations dedicated to protecting and preserving human and wildlife habitats. Proceeds from the works purchased go directly to organizations around the world. “At our inaugural sale, 60% of net proceeds will be donated to Big Life Foundation, Great Plains Foundation’s Ranger Project, Jane Goodall Institute’s Roots & Shoots, and SeaLegacy,” says the team. 40% of net proceeds will go directly to the photographers to continue their vital conservation education work.
