Note from Ethiopia In Recognition of HGP Artists' Participation in the Memory Project
Dear Ms. Smallen and Artists,
I’m very happy to let you know that the kids in Ethiopia have received the portraits, and they absolutely loved them!
In total my two team members delivered portraits to kids at five different locations. They took video footage of the kids receiving the portraits at three of those locations, and here you will see just how excited the kids were to receive their special gifts:
At the other two locations they took photos of the kids individually holding their portraits. I matched you with kids at one of those two locations so that you would have these individual delivery photos, and they are now in your Ethiopia folder at:
As is always the case, a number of children and teens were away when the delivery took place. Those portraits were photographed in the hands of their friends just to document their arrival, and then given to their caretakers who will see that they reach the proper children. Also, if you notice that some of the kids look rather serious, please know that is usually just because they feel shy and nervous in front of the camera:
I think you will also be pleased to know that we were able to make a collective financial donation of $3,550 to help support the kids' education, thanks to the participation fees you contributed. So please be proud that you helped to provide that gift along with the portraits.
Thanks so much to all of you for being part of the Memory Project. You have given these children meaningful keepsakes to last a lifetime. I hope you’ll be involved again!
