I have posted four pieces for sale on my Etsy page in order to raise some funds for victims/survivors of the recent earthquake in Haiti. All proceeds will go to Yele, an organization created by Wyclef Jean.
From Yele's website:
Yéle Haiti is a foundation started by Grammy-Award winning musician, producer and social entrepreneur Wyclef Jean that is changing lives in this desperately poor but optimistic nation.
Through Yéle Haiti, Wyclef uses music, sports and the media to reinforce projects that are making a difference in education, health, environment and community development. In practical terms this translates to over 3,000 new jobs, close to 7,000 children being put in school, more than 8,000 people a month receiving food and approximately 2,000 young people a month learning about HIV/AIDS prevention.
I will also take requests for commissions in order to help raise funds and provide much needed relief.
