#BringBackOurGirls

May 12, 2014

Call to Art Flyer White Background

I’ve always told my daugh­ters that THEY are the LUCKIEST women in the world because THEY were born in the USA and have EVERY oppor­tu­ni­ty to suc­ceed in life with hard work and deter­mi­na­tion. The sto­ry of the abduct­ed Niger­ian girls is one that sad­ly proves my point. The way so many girls and woman are treat­ed in oth­er coun­tries is heart­break­ing.

Artist Jes­si­ca Sporn is putting togeth­er an auc­tion to help raise mon­ey for a won­der­ful orga­ni­za­tion called Girl Ris­ing. I am donat­ing the mixed media can­vas shown below to help raise mon­ey for this awe­some cause. Girl Ris­ing is a glob­al cam­paign for girl’s edu­ca­tion and their mis­sion is to change the way the world val­ues girls.

Please take a few min­utes to vis­it the web­site and learn about Girl Ris­ing. If we all work togeth­er I tru­ly believe we can make a dif­fer­ence by break­ing bar­ri­ers such as ear­ly mar­riage, gen­der-based vio­lence, domes­tic slav­ery and sex traf­fick­ing. This means not only a bet­ter life for girls, but a safer, health­i­er and more pros­per­ous world for all.

The online auc­tion begins May 15th at 7AM EDT and ends May 17th at 3PM EDT, I hope you will join me the oth­er awe­some artists Jes­si­ca Sporn, Lin­da Kittmer, Mar­jie Kem­per, Judy Shea, Glen­da HoaglandAstrid Mclean, my friend Ron­da Palaz­zari and oth­ers. There is going to be some amaz­ing art up for bid.
