Report Back from Haiti and Ti Maché Trunk Sale Event!
Come check out the children’s work from our May/June 2009 Photography Workshops and past Workshops! We’ll report on our recent trip, our first digital Photo Workshop with 30 kids at ACFFC in Jacmel, and our new collaboration with a group of 25 children in Cite Soleil. The Haitian Folk Art Sale benefits our programs with street children in Haiti – we are fundraising for our new school sponsorship program so young children can begin their education in September, for our continuing program that finances school and rent for 12 teens, and our outreach programs. Join us at the Palo Alto home of our generous partner who assisted us in Haiti, Susan Bradley!
Come on by and enjoy Guy’s famous Rhum Punch, purchase beautiful Haitian Folk Art for your home and garden, and find out what we’re up to. Our sale includes wonderful paper maché art made by the children at ACFFC.
Saturday August 1, 2009 from 1 – 6 pm
Report presentation at 4:00 pm
1312 Parkinson Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94301
We brought back all sorts of beautiful new art! You will be amazed at the variety of brightly painted recycled metal art, traditional metal sculpture, Vodou flags, candle holders, beaded purses, paintings, paper maché, macrame bracelets, and other wonderful Haitian goodies.
For Care Bags we continually collect new or almost new t-shirts, soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, compact non-battery games (dominos, cards, marbles, etc.), little notebooks/pens, travel shampoos/conditioners/lotions, and other items such as combs, floss, or vitamin C candy that all fit in a ziplock.
Thanks and hope to see you on Saturday!
