|Need a little help, especially from artists and crafters

Hey all, I am working on the creation of a children's show and charity and am in need of some assistance. I am trying to coordinate an iron artist fundraiser and right now, I have 10 artists. I may have more, but with FA down currently, I don't know. What I am doing it asking for 20+ artists to contribute their skills to an iron artist thing. If you don't know, an iron artist thing is where an artist does 100 sketches or drawings or whatever in order to raise money, earn some scratch and so on. I am going to be one of the artists (crafter to be precise) in this.|
Instead of asking for any artist to do a ton of work for this fundraiser, I am looking for at least 20 so that no artist will be responsible for more than 5 pieces of work. So I am looking for some more artists to help me raise some money. My goal is $2,000.
Now before you think I am just asking and not even considering that artists make a living from their skills (which I know) I am giving the artists $5 per piece of work. So if they do 5, I will give them $25. I know that isn't a lot, but it's a fundraiser. Ok, so each piece will be $20 and each artist decides what they will do for that money. If it's a sketch, it's a sketch, if it's a badge, it's a badge, if it's a full color picture, it's a full color picture. Now you may be asking, how do I get $2,000 by doing $2,000 of art and still give the $5 per picture. I have someone who is going to match $500 of money raised to start this thing out. So now you know.
And as an incentive to have artists donate their abilities at a discount, I am going to draw names for the two still in box kindle fire first generation devices. One is a brand new one, the other is a refurbished model, but neither has been opened. I will draw two names, one for each of the kindle fires.
If you would like to donate to my efforts for this show, I would truly appreciate this. This show and charity is a huge thing for me. It will combine my love of teaching, being a mascot, helping people stay healthy and give everyone an opportunity to live a long and exciting life.
So if you are an artist, know artists, are crafty, want to donate, please just say so.
