buy some art = bring some hope || community

some of you may know that our little family is making a big move across the pacific ocean.. in 5 weeks in fact! our adventure is on the interwebs at www.heppnersinasia.myfotojournal.com. we are started to get really excited as there is lots to do in preparation to go! the kids are enrolled in school for january..we have a place to call “home” when we get there..our dog can come! hahah.. :) yes..we are excited.

one of the things we will be doing there is being able to be a part of the GENTLE HANDS family..my husband’s sister, charity, runs the non-profit organization, which is a rescue agency for abandoned and and at-risk children and youth. it also serves as an orphanage for many children to be loved. they are currently in the midst of a building expansion as they are bursting at the seams. 

being a part of this organization brings so much joy to my heart and life..and i’m still on THIS side of the globe! i can’t wait to be on THAT side!

one of the things i wanted to do before we left was put on some sort of community based fundraiser for the Gentle Hands building expansion. and so i did.

it is in the form of an online art auction. some of Vancouver & Canada’s finest photographers and artists donated fine art prints for this auction. i’m overwhelmed at the response of the artist community. so giving. and their art - UNbelievable.

the art auction gallery is up for preview all this week. on sunday, nov 28, the online bidding begins and for 3 days you have the chance of not only taking home one of these fine coveted pieces of art for you or for someone this Holiday season, but you get to give to an incredible cause - Gentle Hands. All proceeds are going towards the building expansion.

i’m so excited. :)

so hop on over to the preview gallery and share the link with your friends and family..the more people bidding, the better! thank you! xoxo
