Today is #GivingTuesday. Your gift can bring warm clothes to a child living in a tent. Your gift can deliver vital medicine to families living in isolated #Palestinian villages. Your gift can give kids and teens access to basic education, so their dreams don't fade. Please #ShineYourLightand give today." I assume these two darlings are sisters, and I hope I have communicated that resemblance. Unfortunately, all they have is each other.
Recently, I had an open house/open studio to share my artwork, and front and center were my 10 paintings of portraits of refugee children in Palestine and Lebanon as a part what I am calling The Innocents Project. People donated to the cause and, in addition, I am donating a percentage of my sales of artwork to ANERA. I know that the money will be well spent. As an artist, I feel an obligation to express myself not only in "pretty paintings" but to communicate my passion for the good of these children, who are innocent victims.
I am so proud of this organization, ANERA. 97 percent of their money goes to satisfying their mission. They do great work. Please consider a donation to the Innocents Project, my effort to raise awareness and money for ANERA, at www.ANERA.org today or any day. Thank you for your consideration.
