For my first year of tenure I wanted to do something BIG for my community service project. So, I decided to create a fundraiser to build a school reading room in Laos. I am giving artwork (created by me) as an incentive for the donations. Here is a little more about the project. The organization Room to Read (my favorite non-profit) will establish the Library and create a space with books, puzzles, games, furniture and trained library staff for hundreds of children in a community in Laos. 100% of the proceeds of artwork sales goes towards the project and over 20 pieces have already sold and funds have been donated to the project.
The tremendous amount of support from friends and family has been overwhelming. We have already reached $2,800 of our project goal of $5,000!
