Upgrade Your Space (For A Good Cause!) At This Killer Art Sale

So, we clearly never need a reason to hit up a great sale — give us even a small discount, and you can bet we'll be there to take a look. However, a great sale that gives back to an even greater cause actually makes our hearts race. And we've found just such a thing, for the decor fiends in us, just in time for the frigid nesting weather out there.
ACRIA (The AIDS Community Research Initiative of America), is offering up some pretty incredible artwork for 20-40% off, depending on what you spend. And, okay, it's legit art, so the prices are a little steep — purchases under $999 are discounted by 20%, anything over $1,000 is 25% off, anything over $5,000 is 25% off, and anything over $10,000 is 40% off. But, if you have the cash, there's no greater cause to give it to: ACRIA supports, develops, and explores the research, technologies, and therapies that can help to treat and cure AIDS, plus they provide AIDS education in the US and around the world — not too shabby, huh? Just be sure to email the store requesting the discount on your purchase.
