Colours For Children Christmas Give-Away-I NEED YOUR HELP!

Sooooo, do you want to win some original Art? Well, here's your opportunity! I am proud to announce an Art give-away that starts today! COLOURS FOR CHILDREN CHRISTMAS GIVE-AWAY. All you have to do is click on the hummingbird and you could win weekly prints and an original watercolor in the final week of the give-away!

All of this came about because of my LOVE for the island of Jamaica and her people! FOJ- or Friends of Jamaica is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to improving educational opportunities and medical care for the children of Jamaica.

I am a member of a message board called I was led to their site and have come to know many members. During one visit to the board I read about a benefit that was taking place in Illinois to help the children of Jamaica and I inquired if I could donate some art for the silent auction. This is how I came to know FOJ (Friends of Jamaica). Marcia, the director has done so much to raise awareness and raise contributions for the children of this third world country.

If you read some of my previous posts you will find out more about my connection to the island and how I try to make a small difference there!

And I have a SPECIAL FAVOR to ask of anyone that comes to my site... Would you please copy and paste the hummingbird at the top of this post with the link to the FOJ website and put it on your blog where it will be seen for the next 5 weeks? I need all the help I can get in trying to raise awareness and donations for the Jamaican children. You can enter the give-away too! A donation is not required in order to participate but for $5 you can get a really nice print or an original watercolor painting.

I would like to THANK YOU and THANK YOU again if you do put this on your site and PLEASE leave me a comment to let me know that you did. I appreciate your help with this!

Please enter as many times as you want! Remember the give-away is FREE to enter but you can also enter by making a $5 donation!
