I’m going to Africa and I’m raffling off one of my vessels!

I’m going to Africa, specifically Ethiopia this summer on a humanitarian trip. I will be working with two organizations called One Child Campaign and Vision on Africa.  One Child Campaign focuses on helping orphanages and Vision on Africa assists women to become self-sustaining through selling craftwork. I will be traveling for three weeks visiting and providing much needed supplies/knowledge to the needy.

Since I’m going on this big adventure I am raffling off one of my art pieces to raise money for the children. The orphanages need many things, and I am going to pack my suitcases with as much as I can to bring to Ethiopia, or buy supplies in-country.

Please note that every penny raised will go directly to buying supplies (absolutely no money will be used for personal expenses).

The tickets are $5.00 for one or $20.00 for five.

Just look for the donate button on the right side of my blog!

The drawing will be May 28!

This piece is called: I Dream About A Faraway Place

12″ x 6″ x 6″

Please pass this along to a friend!
