Help Us Help African Children!

Sterling and I are wishing to join our church's mission, Point of Grace, in helping the thousands of homeless children in South African learn about AIDS/HIV, provide food, shelter, health care, and education. It is out church's mission to send groups there to help build the health center, housing, and school. We so greatly feel a need to join and help!!! Below is more information provided from Point of Grace's website.

We need help raising money to go. Sterling knows carpentry, frame work, and everything under the sun. I hope to paint, help educate where I can, and hopefully use my illustration skills in murals. With helping us, you will be helping children who need ALL of our help!!

As a thank you, if you donate $20 or more you will receive an open edition from dreamflierstudios.com of your choice. Also, no matter how much you donate you will receive a handmade thank you from both of us and a certificate noting your help in the fight.
