Welcome to my auction post for The Paint Party Friday Auction Blog Hop to Benefit the Sandy Hook Elementary School
On December 14th, 2012, 20 innocent children and 6 brave adults lost their lives in the second deadliest shooting in American history. Like everyone else, I was profoundly touched by this tragedy. Next to keeping our children safe at home, we trust them to be safe at school. What happened was unimaginable.
I thought the metaphors of new growth, rebirth and renewal, were fitting tributes to the lives lost at Sandy Hook. Because I am committed to making the world a more peaceful place, I chose Sandy Hook Promise as the charity to receive the proceeds from my auction. The mission of Sandy Hook Promise is to:
1. Help the community heal and provide ait to the family members who lost loved ones, to survivors, teachers, staff, first responders and to the Newton community;
2. Bring together, in local and national dialogue, the great majority of Americans who agree that we must find common sense solutions to make our communities and our country safer.
What I Am Auctioning:
I'm auctioning off this set of 4 mixed media 4x4" canvases.
The backs are signed and dated by me, and the little easels are included so that they are ready for immediate display!
This auction runs from Friday March 15th, 2013 until
Monday March 18th, 2013 at 11:59 pm EDT.
