Haiti Is Amazing- Spread the Word!

I knew traveling to Haiti and meeting the children in person would spark my passion to do even more to give every child that comes into the Rescue Center the HOPE that they deserve. The Rescue Center and Clinic do so much for the people in Haiti and I thought over and over again "what would people do if they weren't here???" What if there wasn't a place here to provide nutritious food for kids that are starving? What if there wasn't a medical clinic here for the baby whose arm was severely burned in a pot of boiling water? Real Hope For Haiti truly is giving hope to people and it was such a gift to experience it first hand.

I'll be sharing more about our week in Haiti soon, but wanted to at least post a few pictures. Even in pictures, it's amazing to see the children who have recently come to the center and how solemn, frail, and weak they look....and then to see the kids who have been there awhile as they are getting stronger and healthier and have huge smiles on their faces. How amazing to see the joy return to their eyes.

I've already had several people ask me how they can help these children. Spread the word about Artists For Hope! Tell the artists, etsy people, and friends and family in your life so we can add more artwork and raise more money for the Rescue Center. ALL proceeds from donated artwork go directly to the Rescue Center. Plus we'll give free advertising to all artists who donate.
What better reason to buy or create artwork?
