Artist Launches New Products Benefiting DCAC

Artist Donald Robertson and Barrington Gifts have released a new line of bags and accessories to benefit the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center.

Robertson previously partnered with Dallas leather goods and gift shop Barrington Gifts on a bag printed with his longhorn design in 2021, which raised close to $40,000. Prior to the collaboration with Barrington, the artist auctioned off a pair of paintings of horses to benefit DCAC in early 2021, which raised nearly $15,000 for the organization.

“Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center is extremely thankful to Donald Robertson for his tireless support of our work and mission to end child abuse,” said Irish Burch, DCAC President & CEO. “It is something magical when someone is able to use their talents for good, and Donald is the epitome of this effort.”

He first learned about the organization through board member Dr. Phillip Ewing shortly after he moved to the Park Cities area from California.

 “As a father myself, Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center is an organization in our community that is particularly close to my heart,” said Robertson. “My hope is that when people see these new bags, it sparks a conversation about the cause and raises awareness about how others can get involved as well.”
