Global ArtXchanges 'Funds for Youth Art Supplies'

Edwinno discovered a wonderful initiative by a humanitarian organization “Global ArtXchange” to bring smiles on the faces of young artists in impoverished and wartorn places in the world. This initiative is founded by Vesa Peltonen, accomplished and dedicated in art, whose motto is to “give back” with care, compassion and determination and to grow a worldwide group of volunteers and associates.

Currently a campaign is running for 60 days to be able to send art materials and supplies to carefully selected art schools. Global ArtXchanges has been at this cause now for 6 years and already helped in Africa, Nepal, to S. America, and even in North America . The youth artists send us artwork, which will be used in a 'World Youth Art Peace Exhibition' in one of our two year phases. Vesa  started by initially using personal money.  Now Global ArtXchanges receives funds from various sources, from a funding foundation  to arts councils. We seek sponsors/patrons most importantly, to sustain our mission to move ahead with the documentary filming,now, while sending materials.
Global ArtXchanges is supported by artists and ambassadors like Marina V and Andre Ramolo and hope to get the endorsement of many other of influence in the arts or otherwise.
Your support is appreciated through a donation (we have special incentives for patrons), volunteer or sharing our vision and plea with kindred spirits.  Any donation of $10 or more is matched to help the children!!!
What we do with the funds
(1) Sending Art Supplies to Needy Youth Art Groups World-wide is ongoing, so thus we need any contribution possible.
(2) We are doing a short film documentary, for promotion, as well as send later a finished film to Film Festivals.
(3) To create a 'World Youth Art Peace' Exhibition, from the art given by the kids, we have helped. We have already received some.
Your Impact
This enlivens world youth, gives them hope, a sense of accomplishment, and affects in a positive way also their family, friends, & neighborhood. Their Community will get involved, creating volunteering and jobs. We have already seen that happen, in Ghana for example. The community begins to share in the responsibility to sustain this effort. Since the young artists have proper art supplies to work with, this puts smiles on the faces of everyone. Having family to teachers begin to share in the responsibility of motivating their youth, thus enriching the spirit in and involving many in this focus of the future of their children's education.

Ann Change and Lost

Well, my plans changed today or should I say they were cancelled. I sat lost for a few hours, lost in thought, lost in the moment. It was a lovely thing. I realize I can change and go forward with some nice freedom, inspired by this story. I stopped a moment and wrote this comment and now I go.

Nice recount! Dreams are an interesting glance into our minds and seem quite elusive for me, remembering dreaming and forgetting the content most times. Is there something I am missing? Probably
Ann Clinic Rules

good rules vs bad rulesFollowing rules was extreme programming from infancy for me. First rule: You are here to help your mother, You are the servant of your family. I was taught to be an adult as an infant and only recently found the un-nurtured infant inside. In finding my infant I was able to stop crying for what seemed to be no reason. I have learned through much therapy that some rules are a method of abuse. I have learned to use better judgement in following rules. Some rules are for our...
