NBCRightNow.com – Photographers from across our region are submitting their amazing photos to an auction for Oso.

It is called Art For Oso. The prints get auctioned off and all the funds go right to relief efforts. The photos are posted in a facebook group's album and then anyone who would like to buy a print can comment with a price. They usually start off around $40.

Like any auction the highest bidder gets the prize. Organizer Justin Kraemer tells us after he watched the destruction in Oso on the news he wanted to help.

"I felt terrible. I mean I live probably a half hour or 45 minutes away from where this all happened. I've been there several times going fishing and hiking with my dad. I thought this would be a way to kind of make a difference."

The auction is in its second round. The first round brought in over $8,000. The second round, which they hope will bring in at least $10,000, ends tonight. Kraemer says he would like to do a third.

If you would like to buy a photo or even contribute one you can contact Kraemer through the facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/artforoso/
