I am running a special this month to raise funds for a cause close to my heart…$50 will get you any painting that I have available for sale right now, and 100% of the money goes straight to New Life Fellowship in Cambodia, where I volunteered for almost two years. Go to my website, www.serendipityartdesign.com and click on the “Donate to Cambodia” page. Or just go directly to www.cambodiaoutreach.org and navigate to their “donate” page. Show me the receipt of your $50 donation, and take home your painting. Every $50 increment will get you another painting. I’m excited to see how this little fundraiser goes, and if it is successful, hope to get more artists enlisted for the cause and do some art pieces that feature scenes from places I visited during my stay in Cambodia. Because the paintings are rather large and difficult to ship, I’m only doing this as a local endeavor and require pick-up in person; however, if this proves successful, I will certainly offer shipping of pieces in the future. I can meet you anywhere between Central Point and Ashland, we’ll just have to coordinate schedules.
I am still very close friends with so many of the people I met while I was over there, and have a close connection with many of the families that have been helped by their work. New Life Fellowship provides free English, Computer, Office and Job skills training in the capital city of Phnom Penh, and they build community centers in the rural villages where they provide free health and sanitation education, better agricultural practices instruction, and provide small business start up funds. They have helped to put hundreds of underprivileged children through school as well as providing support to the family, if the family is present. I taught some of the English classes while I was there, I visited the community centers and even painted a few murals. Now that I’m back home, I am determined to find creative ways to continue to help such a worthy cause.
Please feel free to shoot me an email or a phone call if you have any questions or would like to request a custom piece in exchange for you $50 donation, which I would be happy to do 🙂
