Ethiopian Orphan Relief, Inc. (EOR) needs your help! We will be producing a series of note cards, greeting cards and holiday cards for sale on our website. All proceeds from the sale of these cards will benefit EOR’s Programs, all of which help Ethiopian orphans. We would like these cards to feature the artwork of Ethiopian children, and we have already been gathering submissions from children in the orphanages.
If your Ethiopian child (any age!) would like to make a submission, please mail it to our Vice President Kim Pasion at 3020 SW Christy Ave., Beaverton, OR 97005 by Friday, August 1, 2008. We will be choosing the artwork to include at our Board Meeting in Portland later that week. The top boy and girl submissions will receive a free EOR t-shirt! We will notify you if your child’s submission has been chosen for inclusion, and let you know what series it will appear in. Along with your submission, please include your address, your child’s name and their shirt size. Also, please prepare a “bio” for your child like the one below. These bios will appear on the back of the art card featuring your child’s submission!
“This work of art was created by Amelie from Colorado. Amelie is 2 years old and was adopted from the Toukoul Orphanage in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in 2007. She was born in Harar, Ethiopia and is of Oromo descent. She loves climbing, running, drawing and playing with her little brother and dogs. The purchase of this card supports projects aimed at improving the lives of Ethiopian orphans. For more information, please visit http://www.ethiopianorphanrelief.org.”
Thanks in advance for your help! We’re all very excited to see the submissions!
