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