Why [You] Bother[ed] was a project that sought to ease the anxiety and feelings of helplessness felt by those who are discouraged by the news or events in their personal lives.  Each illustration responded directly to a bother voiced by participants, and proceeds from print purchases went directly to organizations and charities that would help to relieve said bother.  By working together to enact change (however small), Why Bother hoped to create a world in which we could all be a bit less bothered.
