SANTA BABARA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, July 1, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — Greg Gillespie, a veteran portrait artist with 40 years of experience, is leveraging his talent to raise awareness about the dangers of “fake pills” laced with fentanyl. In conjunction with the launch of his new online business, Celebrate Portraits (https://celebrateportraits.com), Gillespie aims to educate the public and support those affected by the fentanyl crisis.

As someone who was involved in the drug culture during his youth, Greg understands firsthand the critical importance of drug education. He is acutely aware of the deceptive nature of fake pills, which often appear to be legitimate medications but are dangerously laced with fentanyl. This personal connection fuels his passion to spread awareness and prevent others from falling victim to these illicit drugs.

Celebrate Portraits specializes in creating beautiful, custom portraits, including memorial art to honor loved ones who have passed away. As part of his commitment to the cause, Greg Gillespie is pledging to donate 10% of profits from his memorial portraits to groups and associations dedicated to promoting fentanyl awareness and education.

“I want to use my art to make a difference,” said Gillespie. “It’s not just about creating beautiful portraits, but also about saving lives by spreading awareness about the dangers of fentanyl-laced pills. By supporting organizations that promote drug education and awareness, I hope to contribute to the fight against this growing epidemic.”

Gillespie also emphasized the profound impact of losing a loved one: “The pain of losing a loved one can be difficult to come to grips with, and anyone who has struggled with grief will understand this. This is something that will be so much more difficult to cope with when the loved one is a child taken too soon from this opioid scourge we have been facing for far too long.”
