Hedge fund manager Nelson Saiers is waiving his previous proposal to graffiti artist Banksy.

Saiers Capital chief investment officer Saiers, who previously offered to donate $100,000 to support Hurricane Sandy efforts in exchange that Banksy raise awareness of the catastrophe through hurricane-related pieces, said in a statement to the artist that he has decided to forgo the original proposition and will donate the money to help underprivileged children in Sandy-affected areas.

Saiers added in the letter that anonymous donors are waiting to see if the artist will accept the original offer before donating the additional $142,000 toward the Hurricane Sandy cause.

Saiers, a former Deutsche Bank managing director, is affiliated with charity: water which is a non-profit organization that brings clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations.
