Let the new years resolutions begin!

I don't think I have ever been more stoked to welcome in the new years! It may or may not have something to do with coming up with a better new years resolution than the ones I have had in the past...like to shut the garage door every day, or put the milk back in the fridge... I have realized that those are ridiculously impossible resolutions to keep and I have landed on one that I KNOW can happen.

Here at the Paint Box Cafe we were able to reach our goal this Christmas of raising enough money to build a well in another country. Not only do we get to have the honor of being able to provide water for people in need but we actually get the privilege to build it. We were stoked to say the least. I couldn't believe it was that easy. After being involved with this Christmas tradition after so many years I couldn't believe that I had not thought of the idea earlier to continue giving to Living Water International year round! The season of giving should be every season! not just around Christmas.

After lots of brainstorming and I am excited to announce my new years resolution… Don't worry, I am not asking you to help me to remember to close the garage door… BUT, I will need your help, pretty please! For the year 2012, it is my goal to raise enough money to build a well in another country; a goal I am dubbing "In Living Waters".  A portion of proceeds from the sale of my art will go towards the rebuilding of a water source in a third world country and therefore the gift of new life!  Here are some of the first pieces created with this goal in mind!

Stay tuned to find out more on what's to come and how you too can give!
