Everyone Counts

I have been so touched by this very local project! everyONEcounts  - a project in aid of abandoned babies.
Apparently 3 babies are abandoned every 48 hours in my home province of KZN.  This project is a positive and creative response to this tragic statistic.
Lara Mellon is inviting ONE thousand artists from around the globe to each donate an artwork of 30cm x 30cm where each work will be sold for ONE thousand rand, no more, no less … where regardless of status and standing, the value of ONE life will be celebrated. The proceeds will go to Shepherd's Keep - a home for these precious little people! 
  
Thanks to my friend Kim Wessels for telling me about this incredible project, and whose beautiful piece of work above has already contributed R1000.
