Crisis In the Horn of Africa
Thursday, September 1, 2011
With the help of Audrey's kind friends and family over at the Audrey Hepburn Children's Fund, we are offering the "Audrey & the Children" print to generate profits for UNICEF 's work in the deadly Somalia Crisis. The news coverage has been quiet but the death toll numbers are LOUD (outlined here ) and most of those numbers are children.
Audrey's very last mission for UNICEF was to Somalia. When this news story stopped my heart last week, her face came clearly to mind. These children occupied Audrey's heart, mind, and time until her death. She would be there in a heartbeat.
Limited Edition "Audrey & the Children" 13x19 archival signed and dated print with all profits to UNICEF via Audrey Hepburn Children's Fund. The children in the painting are dressed in the traditional garb of the various places Audrey served around the world. (Click to enlarge) :
Gratitude to Ellen, Rob, Sean and Luca and the folks at AHCF. Praying that Audrey's work can continue in Somalia ♥
