Many of my friends and family are in the public education field as teachers, nurses, administrators, and paraprofessionals. I had the privilege of personally working alongside several for almost the entire past decade too. Constantly witnessing beautiful heroic unspoken deeds of kindness and compassion daily, it was inspiring to say the least. I saw angels every day in the schools I worked at, giving of their own time and even their own money to help students whose only safe place, their only daily meal, their only emotional and physical comfort was in the rooms of their school building for the day.
Thinking of my angel friends and family who step up every day for so many precious students, some of whom are neglected, abused, hungry, and even homeless. I've hand-painted a limited amount of one-of-a-kind abstract angel ornaments, 4x4 acrylic on canvas, to sell with 100% of the profit going to my city's food bank! Having donated my art to various non-profit organizations for over 20 years now, I'm excited to try doing so in an online store format for the first time ever!
If you would like to purchase an "Angel Ornament" from my shop to donate money to the Forney Food Pantry on your behalf, I will turn around and donate the entire profit through their website's direct link. I will gladly email you a copy of the Forney Food Pantry's donation confirmation as well. You will receive your unique keepsake ornament from me to commemorate when you also became an angel who stepped up to help a child in need.
Please consider donating to your local food bank if you can. You may also donate directly to the Forney Food Pantry at https://forneyfoodpantryinc.org/ by scrolling down to the bottom of their webpage to click on the "Donate" button. November and December are the hardest months for food banks. This year is especially hard for people in need.
‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ ~Matthew 25:40
Please note that my donation made on your behalf to Forney Food Pantry is based on my profit from your ornament purchase, so the food bank donation will not include the ornament's shipping costs to you.
