The auction for the children's art/media building in Uganda is coming along nicely.

This is Rachael, she is four years old!

Rachael was abandon as a baby. But Kampala Children's Centre took her in and fed and clothed her and they are giving her  firm educational foundation, and most importantly spiritual guidance. Yes these children are being raised to be kind and gentl loving leaders in their communities.

A fund raiser!
The below information should answer most if not all of your questions. It is for both art and financial donors. Please watch the video on the PIF account if you want to know more about the program for the children at Kampala Children's Centre. The information on that video is a very important part of what their goal is all about, it's not only about feeding bellies, it's about feeding the souls as well!!!!
Call for ART, artists and art appreciators!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If my artists friends are interested in giving art works for the Ugandan art program cause this is how they can during the on line auction.
You send me the picture and dimensions of the item/s you are willing to share and through out the auction I post them for a certain time limit. (donations can be anything art related, paintings, prints, necklaces hand made naturally, or items to make art with, like beautiful wooden substrates) When the time limit is up or when the art item reaches a certain desirable monetary value the bidding than closes. The person who wins the bid on your art item pays first than sends me their snail mail (actual living address), and I email it to the art donor(you). The artists who donates than sends the actual art work or print (always stated in auction) onward to the winning bidder. I will set up a pay-pal address through the Kampala Children's org for pay-pal to be paid, once each payment clears and basically goes through bank I tell the board(everyone in the online auction room) on the fb group( I will be creating [An Altruistic Art Auction]as well as my own fb group[under Susan Burgess that's me> Sanna]) that it went through and than you (the artist) can send the item to the payee. So shipping costs are incurred by the very generous artists! For over seas buyers (that means out of states) we can add an extra fee depending on weight and size to be paid to the artist if need be. Although some of our artists are from other countries so anyone in that country can purchase those items without that issue. Like take my art for example, it can be huge, heavy and generally not something anyone would want to have to pay to be sent over seas, so if someone over seas does want one of my large canvases they would have to agree to pay complete shipment costs. Which could perhaps run in the hundreds. FOR PAPER PRODUCT (like a print or art done on watercolor paper) out of states is an extra ten dollars and can be sent separately to the artist or art donor, if they are the starving type(which there are many of who are very talented). When the artists states before hand they need help with shipment otherwise all proceeds can go to the Ugandan program. Making this clear: all fees are incurred by the artist themselves for shipment costs(unless otherwise specified). Cost of winning bid is due before product is sent out to winner bidder, and if a separate shipment fee is requested by the artist to the artists separate pay pal account), and due exactly at winning time of bid..
I am very excited about this auction as several artists have already given generous offers! Thank you GOD, thank you artists!!!!! Soon I will be posting some of the artworks that will be going up for auction at the end of OCT and beginning of Nov. The auction will be held from Oct. 31st until NOV. the 6th 2015.
Remember this is all for a very good cause! The Children of Uganda!!!
I really want to bring these sweet children some artful hope, I am hoping my fellow artisans will join in on this altruistic but rewarding experience. Again you can see either my fb page or blog for more information about the project.Thanks so much in advance you are a part of the love that makes good things come to fruition . Huggles, Sanna.
Information is also available on my blog athttp://wwwsannasartmind.blogspot.com/
Please consider giving and if you would rather give directly so that 100% of your money goes to the art program you can send to here:(only 80% goes to the children through the PIF account, 20% goes to other charities in the funding)
NDE Network(Nations Discipleship Enterprise)
73 Grandview Drive
Newington, CT. 06111-4724
The above address is where I send the money to the child I sponsor during the year. This is where the treasurer lives his name is Victor Visock , and when I asked the founder how much Victor gets paid for this I found out he takes nothing. He actually gives his own money to the children as well. So 100% of the money you send to this address will go to the children of Uganda at Kampala Children's Centre.
If you are sending the money to support the art program, just be sure to write that on the note line of your check (this money is intended for the art program)so it can be ear marked for the art program.
I also started a Pay It Forward account before GOD led my hand into holding the auction.
This is the pay it forward account be sure to read all the info and see the video::
