WOW! It's on. In less than 24 hours we begin our journey to Ethiopia and we get to go knowing that our project is 100% funded! That is truly awesome and it wouldn't be possible without our backers. We have set a stretch goal of $2000 to try to double our impact in the next 13 days. Please SHARE our link with your friends!

Take a look at just a part of what our backers have funded. Our suitcases are going to be packed to the gills with art supplies and there's going to more to purchase for the mural when we get to Addis.

Art Supplies for the Workshops

Lennon is preparing to teach several types of techniques during his workshops. And here comes the fun part: our amazing friends at A Cup of Common Wealth are going to host an art exhibit of the top student works. These pieces, along with some of Lennon's photos and sketches, will be sold to benefit the school. We are so excited to have our local coffee shop joining us in this effort. Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee so we see it being a perfect fit for a compassionate collaboration!

Keep telling people about our project and stay tuned for updates upon our arrival in Addis Ababa. 

THANK YOU for supporting this art education project in Ethiopia! 

P.S. Thank you to the organizers of Girls on the Run Central KY for donating tee-shirts for needy kids at the school!
