Dear Trade Your Talent Readers,
my really good friend Patricia Schneidewind runs a non-profit called the Bakhita Girls Project (www.bakhitagirls.com). They provide scholarships for young mothers and underprivileged girls to return to local secondary schools in Ifakara, Tanzania. Right now Bakhita are working on raising funds for the girl’s school fees that are due by the end of August. I told my friend about the many talented artists I know and I was wondering if you'd like to donate one of your artworks for this great cause. We will probably do an art raffle or let guests at the fundraiser buy a painting in the name of one of the 13 school girls !!
1) If you are in New York I would be really happy if you could join us at this great event!
2) If you would like to contribute from anywhere around the world it would be great if you'd be able to send one of your artworks to us or directly to one of the guests who will buy your painting at the fundraiser! of course we will also put your name on the flyer for the fundraiser and I will blog loads about your participation! :-))
We will let you know after the fundraiser who donated money for your painting!
The fundraiser: The fundraiser will take place at Vodou Bar in New York (a new bar that opened a few months ago on Nostrand Ave, near the Nostrand stop on the A) around the middle of next month. The date is not fixed yet but will take place between the 10th and 22nd of August (date will be set soon), so if you'd like to send us an artwork please get in touch soon ;)
For more info drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org !!
I look forward to hearing from you!!!
All best from New York,
