Dec. 6, 2011 - PRLog -- The Giving Goose™ a company that produces a line of clothing and gifts featuring the drawings of children, is currently seeking young artists to submit their artwork for consideration to be used on future products.

The brainchild of six-year-old Bethany Sawyer, The Giving Goose is a family business overseen by Bethany’s parents, Dan and Nancy Sawyer of Falmouth, MA.  Bethany’s desire to “help make the world a better place” was the impetus for The Giving Goose.  Recently, the company introduced its first clothing run, featuring seven original designs drawn by Bethany and her friend Benjamin.  The sketches were scanned, digitally colorized and screen printed onto brightly colored t-shirts and sweatshirts for babies and children.  Ten percent of all proceeds from The Giving Goose line are donated to non-profit organizations, including Boston Children’s Hospital and the Joslin Diabetes Center.

And now The Giving Goose is encouraging young artists everywhere to submit their original artwork, with selected entries to appear on future company products.  The chosen artists will select a charity of their choice for addition to the company’s current group of benefitting non-profits.

Artwork submissions can be uploaded to the company’s website,, or can be mailed to The Giving Goose, 6 Little Brook Road, West Wareham, MA, 02576. All artwork submitted by December 31, 2011 will be considered in the round of judging to be held at the end of January 2012. Winners will be notified and clothing and other products incorporating the original artwork from selected entrants will be sold at a variety of outlets and will also be available online from the company’s website.
