I'm painting a series of paintings to show the work World Vision is doing to help children and families living in poverty.
Please, join me on cheering me on and giving to World Vision's East Africa Hunger Crisis fund. Our gifts will save precious lives and help stop the further spread of famine. Because of grant funds, our gifts have 7X their regular impact, which will provide emergency food, clean water, access to life-saving medical care, and more to children and families fighting for their lives.

This painting is from a photo taken from Megan Pratt / World Vision of a volunteer "Dee Billing" visiting her sponsor child in Uganda. The first time I met this lady was at a conference, she was praying over all the cubeicals of the staff in the building. I think she’s a pretty remarkable lady doing what she does in her eighties and I just couldn’t resist the sweet interaction in the photo. (and of course the chicken) :)
“The search for clean water” is Painting number 4. Children in Rwanda looking for clean water but all they can see is pollution as far as the eyes can see. They have no choice but to drink it, even though animals use it to defecate and it will make them very sick. Photo reference Jon Warren/ World Vision

“Sonali twirls outside a Child-Friendly Space across the street from a brothel in Bangladesh where her mother works. I love this moment because her carefree dancing and beautiful dress reflect who Sonali is inside. Her name means “golden.”

Hunger. Drought. Conflict. These are the deadly forces that children and families throughout East Africa are facing.
Parts of South Sudan are already in the grips of the hunger crisis, while areas of Somalia, Kenya, and Ethiopia are on the brink of catastrophe. Tens of thousands of children could starve to death because of food and water shortages.
Luckily, World Vision has boots on the ground to bring life-saving hope. But they need our help.
We can make a difference! Join me in this endeavor by donating any amount to this hunger crisis. Really, no amount is too small!
Please help me get the word out! Share this with friends!;)
Help cheer me on by donating to this wonderful cause!
Thank you World Vision photographers, storytellers and missionaries showing us the incredible beauty of the people and places that WV works. It is SO very important, especially now in the times that we live in!! :)
All pieces will be sold for World Vision's work in the field.
