Who's in to partake of the giving goodness?

So... I constantly have ideas, and my latest one that I really want to do is this:

What it is:
I'm going to develope an online "gallery / shop" so to speak (probably a blog format), that has different "shows" with themes.

How it works:
Artists / crafters / etc will donate/submit/enter pieces into the specific shows they choose, following the criteria. The pieces go up on "opening night" and stay for the duration of the showing. These pieces are up for sale, set at the price the participant chooses. If they sell, the piece is shipped to a common address, where we will ship it out to the purchaser.

Here's the catch: 
Each show will have a charity associated with it. Most likely small, local ones that can definitely use the extra bit of funding. The money made from that show will go to the charity.

What's in it for the participants? 
First, you get to help people, animals, causes.

Secondly, you get your name out. For all you bloggers and etsyers, that can be big. You will get linked to the page (website or email) for the duration of the show. Also, I'm thinking we'll put out cute, themed brochures or posters and graphics promoting each show, just like a real one, and you can end up in that stuff. Maybe have a biographies and some interviews too. Probably an email list.

People can also donate money to help cover shipping costs for the shipping to the purchaser.

ANYWAY, what do you think? Would you guys be down to participate? I think it's a sweet, cute way to network with other like-minded individuals as well as do some good.

Would you guys help me spread this to make it a success? Just want your feedback and thoughts for now, but I'll be building this out soon!!!

THANKS! and please, please really consider about joining in,
and let your friends and fellow blog-peeps know what's up.
Let's make this make a difference!
