Photograph by Ericka Hoffmann to Support Women's Charities
Erick Hoffman is a friend of Jeni's who was inspired by the Angeliki Horse For Charity Project. Ericka is a strong proponent of women's rights and wanted to contribute some of her artistic efforts to two wonderful causes that help women in need. The proceeds will be split between the two charities Girls Not Brides and the Women's Resource Center of the NRV.
Artwork is 16 X 20 double mated
In her own words Ericka speaks about the project and what it means to her....
"When Jeni first told me about her Angeliki© pendant project with the proceeds being donated to Women’s charities, I immediately was moved by the story of her great-grandmother and all that she endured. Already aware of the existence of human trafficking and the practice of child brides being bartered or sold outright, I wanted to know what I could do to help. The charities that Jeni works with do so much to help combat these practices and improve the quality of life for girls and young women both abroad and in our home state of Virginia. Upon reading further about what Girls Not Brides does, I was both horrified by the conditions and too often abuse that these girls endure, and inspired by the possibilities and the ways that these charities are trying to help. I knew that I had to get involved by donating my photographs to help raise funding."
Ericka's Madagascar Day Gecko is a stunning fine arts piece. It is colorful with an alluring perspective that would not only provide enjoyment as a wonderful home accent, but also help women in need world wide.
