Project HOPE Art is heading back to Haiti for the Holidays.
We’ll be meeting up with children at 7 schools, orphanages and clinics between Christmas and New Years to pass out our handmade gardening guide: There Grows The Neighborhood
We want to foster Urban Gardening for the new year.
And our 2013 project, Let There Be Light will be nearly complete. Read all about it here: http://projecthopeart.org/2012/11/12/let-there-be-light/
We’ll also be teaching art + science workshops at our brand new Project HOPE Art Center at Haiti Communitere in
Port au Prince, Haiti.
And that means . . .
we need a TON of art supplies, computers, fabric, crayons, journals, cameras, ideas and GLITTER to be donated.
If you have of the things on our wishlist lying around your house, please come on down to Peralta Junction before it closes down forever and donate some things to pay it forward to those less fortunate.
