Angel faces charity art auction...

I am pleased to be donating to Illustraion Avenue's very first Art Auction. The auction will run from March 7th -14th and they will be donating 100% of the proceeds to the Award winning charity, Angel Faces. When I read about Angel faces and their stories I decided I had to be part of their auction.

These girls have facial disfigurements due to burns and are taught how to overcome the social challenges that they face every day because they look different. They are counseled one on one and in group settings. These girls get to participate in therapeutic art through mosaics, jewelry making, drawing, journaling and verbal expression.. These girls get to be themselves for one whole week, without being judged. These young ladies experience amazing psychological transformations during this week. Some of their comments, stories and photos are on the Angel Faces website.
{About the Auction}
The Art Auction consists of donated art by Inspiration Avenue team members. They will have the auction up for a whole week in order to reach as large an audience as possible. In order to promote this, they are asking each of you to add the button or flier to your blog and do a post about it. Our team goal is to send the charity at least $500. USD.
Go here to learn more and get their blog button if you want!
I'll be posting the piece of art that I'm donating on April 30th!
Please come back then...
