Dear Donors,

Today is Orphan Sunday, and I want to reach out to all of you to thank you again for your generous donation to my campaign! I so greatly appreciate your contribution to this vision of making a difference in the lives of orphaned and vulnerable children all over the world. Currently I am discussing a partnership with a local organization which is exciting! I will update you once a partnership has been established.

To quote author Bob Goff...
"...love does whatever it takes to multiply itself and somehow along the way everyone becomes a part of it."

Thank you for being a part of The Orphan Portrait Project!

Dear Donors,

Thank you so much for your incredible generosity in helping me reach 45% funding for The Orphan Portrait Project! It's truly been exciting!

I've had the opportunity to meet with a couple of organizations and am preparing to officially present the proposal and begin raising institutional capital. The goal is to have an alignment very soon, so I can begin the process of painting children who are waiting to be adopted.

As I've continued to research the global orphan crisis, I've heard unbelievable stories and read numerous accounts of not only how children become orphaned but also what happens to them when they do. To give you some examples...In some countries if parents die from AIDS and the children are left with relatives, such as grandparents, often they are resentful and starve the children unless they can be placed. Human trafficking plays a significant role when it comes to orphans. According to statistics by large, reputable organizations there are 153 million orphaned and vulnerable children worldwide who guarantee a continued market from which human traffickers can draw. Some children are kidnapped, some sold by parents, some live outside their families and no one will ever know they are missing. Their lifespans are short. The real life stories and statistics are difficult to digest, and as I dig deeper into this I see how much many of the large global issues are intertwined and why so many children become orphaned. It's incomprehensible the level of corruption and evil that lies behind much of it as well.

Your thoughtfulness and generosity is going to make a significant impact in dealing with this global issue. I am so grateful for the support you have provided. No one can do everything, but everyone can so something. Collectively, we are doing something.

Thank you!

Dear Marci,

Wow. Thank you so much for donating to my campaign. I greatly appreciate your thoughtfulness. This project has been truly exciting!

What I hope everyone realizes is that each person who plays a part in this vision for The Orphan Portrait Project...is helping orphans, too. That's what makes this so meaningful. It is the project of many.

Thanks again so much for your kindness and thoughtful generosity!
