Our dear friend, Dehvon Young, contacted us and wanted to create a painting and donate to our cause. She felt the need to do more with her talents, and after prayerful contemplation, she decided to donate the majority of the sales from numerous paintings to charity. After telling her about House of Hope, we both felt confident that she could sell this beautiful piece and make enough money to provide food for a month for the 12 children living at House of Hope in Haiti. The painting was set to be up for sale at the Deep Ellum Arts Festival in Dallas (April 5-7), but before it put up for display it was sold for $600! We are so ecstatic and so thankful to Dehvon for thinking of us and the beautiful children at House of Hope.
In the future, she’ll be painting other pieces for Magic Beans and any prints made from the paintings will also benefit our cause.
April 17th, 2013 – Update! We sent the funds to Haiti to purchase food for House of Hope last week. We received photos of everything they were able to buy. What a joy!! We know their little bellies will be full for a while now.
