The extraordinary artists at the Beehive Collective need you! They're in the running for a grant from the Nau Clothing Company, and you can help them win it by voting for their project on Nau's site. The deadline is August 31.

The grant will fund printing of 10,000 posters and several large-scale cloth banners to be used by grassroots organizers across Appalachia for the Collective's "True Costs of Coal" campaign, which explores the environmental and social consequences of mountaintop removal mining. You can see pictures here.
