I am a local artist and am seeking your help for an upcoming art project of mine.
In the hope of raising awareness regarding the pervasive problem of compulsive hoarding and overconsumption, I am planning an art installation utilizing large quantities of acorns.
I learned that squirrels only find 10 percent of the food they hide. This does not stop them from compulsively collecting and hiding their booty. Thus, I have concluded that squirrels are natural hoarders.
It is my proposal to create an outdoor exhibit in which a large pile of acorns stand side by side with a pile of 10% of the original pile. I would also put a very large paper mache statue of a greedy squirrel. A banner would read, “Don’t collect more than you need!”
I am asking for Fischer Nuts to sponsor my public art display, by donating 100 pounds of acorns or other any other nuts.
I feel this would be a worthwhile endeavor for you, as it would be advertising for Fischer Nuts.
I hope to hear favorably regarding your involvement in this cutting edge art.
