i was asked to donate a print to a benefit auction for d.e.a.a.f. which is an organization that is trying to build a school for deaf children in zambia, africa.

here is a little bit about it…

“deaf education & arts for african families (d.e.a.a.f.) is building a school for the deaf children of monze, zambia. currently, education is unavailable to over 60 plus children who are deaf or hard of hearing. parents or guardians have no resources to give these children the proper education, health and adequate living conditions required to ensure their survival. many of these children live in small villages kilometers from monze without and means of transportation to reach school. our goal is not only to build an educational institution in which to instruct and house these children, but also to create self-sustaining projects necessary to keep the school operating once it has been constructed.”

the benefit auction is taking place on june 18th, 2008 from 7-10pm

at l’etage, 624 s. 6th street (food provided by beau monde)

benefit auction tickets are $40.00

for more information you can call 215.733.9797 ext.4

this is the print that will be up for auction:
