Help me promote my artwork and get found in this crowded world!

Who am I?
Hi! My name is Hassan Swaleh, I am the face and the hands behind the Africa Art .
I am an artist creating canvas Artist and sign writ.
I have developed my own techniques, have my own distinctive style and have gained a nice circle of customers and fans who I love. I am really proud of what I have accomplished so far, but I still need to give my artwork one push (and a serious one) to help it be found.

You can read and see more on my website, you are also very welcome to check out my Facebook page

What I need?
I want my arty business to grow. I have done a lot on my own, now I need to bring my creations to more people. And to the right ones as well. This is beyond what I can do on my own, now I have to advertise in magazines, at some point I am going to bring my pieces to a fashion show (this is going to be the next step, if the first one works as I expect).
Ads in good design and fashion magazines are expensive and this is why I need your help.
All the money raised here will be invested in buying the ad space only, for the rest I am going to use my own time, skills and money.
•I do the photo shooting and photo editing myself, so I won't use your money to pay a fashion photographer.
•The graphical design will be done by me.
•The cooking on the days when I'll be terribly busy will be done by my friends.
I would be very happy if I could collect $6500 in the next two months. This won't buy me an ad in Vogue, but will help me a lot with featuring my artwork in some good magazines, online and printed, and that still before the Christmas time!
Why should you help me?
Because you might feel good about helping a small artistic business to become just a tiny bit bigger.
And because I want to give you something in return!
See, I will go on and do my ad campaign anyway, it does not really depend on the money I will raise here.
But the money from people willing to contribute will allow me to optimize the timing and the scale of the promotion, and I will appreciate any amount you can put in greatly.
So, here is the deal:
For your generosity I am offering my gratitude, virtual hugs and kisses, little appreciation gifts and also my original pieces.
Everything absolutely unique, not to be bought at any shop nor gallery.
You don't have to give money to help!
If you can't contribute money, there are other things you can do and which help me greatly!
•spread the word about my artwork and/or this campaign
•send over some warm thoughts and keep your fingers crossed for my success
•help somebody else whenever you get the chance
