Lespwa/Hope

Last week, I was asked to design a tee-shirt for a Benefit Concert to raise money for Doctors without Borders in Haiti. The benefit took place in my community on Saturday and the organizers of the benefit estimated that our community raised over $3,000!


The picture above is the design I created for the t-shirt! I also donated an original painting that sold in a silent auction. I am putting up prints of it in my etsy shop. They are available now and I'm donating 10% of the sales of these prints to Doctors Without Borders.

available here.
I was so inspired by the big hearts of the people who organized this event, proud of their sponsor, the Sea Education Association and proud to be (newly) a part of the small community of Falmouth.

From the book "Mountains Beyond Mountains" by Tracy Kidder...its a fabulous book about a doctor who built and worked in a Haitian hospital...its a pretty powerful story.
