Art Auction for Angel Faces Charity & A Special Giveaway

We at Inspiration Avenue Etsy Team art hosting an art auction scheduled for March 7th-14th. There will be art from all over the globe including jewelry, photographs, mixed-media, paintings, etc, to bid on. The event is to benefit Angel Faces, a wonderful retreat for adolescent girls (11-19 yrs) with facial disfigurements. These young ladies get to meet up for a week and go through art therapy, group therapy, one-on-one therapy and learn how to respond to the general public when someone makes a comment about how they look a little different. They also learn how to apply makeup so that their scars are not so evident. These young ladies walk away with a bit more confidence, a whole lot of healing and the proper tools to get them where they want to be. This is a wonderful program, these girls get to be themselves without any worry that someone will judge them, for one whole week. It is a major self esteem booster and a place that will touch them emotionally for the rest of their lives.

For the auction, I'm offering one of my favorite paintings :
"Lilac Ruffles" an original acrylic painting by me,           Stephanie Mealor Corder                                                     The size is 8 1/2" x 6 1/2"                                                          painted on canvas paper.                                                      This piece has been matted and backed with foam core       using acid free materials for protection and will                   arrive ready for you to frame and hang on your wall.              The starting bid will be $18.00
Special Giveaway
I am also having a giveaway of 5 greeting cards of your choice from my Etsy Shop open only to you who blog about this Art Auction- just use the flier at the top along with a link HERE on your blogs and then leave me a comment on this post telling me you have done so. The giveaway winner will be chosen by the random generator and announced on March 15th, here on my blog.

This is such a worthwhile cause, I really hope we have a lot of people taking part!
