Fund Raising for Kids.


Fund Raising By Kids For Kids.


With Art.

What a great idea!  This is what came across my computer yesterday.  The idea of one child creating a work of art which will be sold, with the proceeds from the sale being used to purchase a toy for a needy child.


And it was a child that came up with this idea.  Lyla painted this lovely rainbow then asked her mom to put it up on eBay to see if it would sell.  When her mother queried what would Lyla do with the money, Lyla answered she would buy toys for children that don't have them.  


So then the mom posted  the painting and sentiment on her Facebook page which I saw and suggested friends start bidding on the painting right there on Facebook.  And they have been bidding.  Last I checked the high bid was $20.


It's quite a lovely little painting.  The depth this young artist created with layers of clear, washed pigment is intriguing.


It will be beautiful in a frame, under glass, giving a spot of color and whimsy to any room.   And all of the funds paid will go directly to a toy for a child who needs one.  Maybe the 'toy' could include the genre of art supplies for a child that doesn't have them.


This is a win win deal.  The funds raised will provide something for a child that doesn't have and at the same time paying money for the painting will validate the creative efforts of this little artist, Lyla. 




Because of privacy issues, I am not giving out the Facebook page, so if you would like to bid on this painting, leave me a message and I will bid for you.  The bidding closes, tomorrow, Wednesday, May 1 at 10:00 PM.
