Who are you (the artist, rather) to say that one particular cause is
more "just" than another?  What if the SPCA wants to buy such an
encumbered work of art because it makes the animals in their shelter
happier, and part of the price they pay goes to already wealthy estate?

I've generally found that the fastest way to get the right answer on the net
is to confidently assert the answer you believe to be right; those who know
will immediately correct you, while if you just ask, often no answers arrive.
All it requires is a willingness to look bad on occasion.
