Blue Marble

Over the past week, we’ve posted a number of ways to give to Sandy relief. Now there’s a way to ‘get’ when you give. Jan Bekman’s 20×200 online gallery is offering limited edition, archival pigmant prints of Blue Marble:

…NASA’s GOES-13 satellite captured this visible image of the Northern Hemisphere on Sunday, October 28 at 1302 UTC—that’s 9:02 a.m, approximately ten hours before NYC’s MTA shut all transport service down throughout the tri-state area and less than a day before Tropical Storm Sandy gathered full force in the Atlantic Ocean and hit land somewhere in New Jersey.

All net revenue from sales of this edition will benefit the American Red Cross’s efforts to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy.

We don’t know if there is a better reminder of how connected we all are.

It would make a very fine double whammy holiday gift: helping Sandy relief efforts + a potent image.
