Meeting People

At the reception at the Coastal Arts League And Museum I got to meet a lot of interesting people. Karen Ande had a wonderful photo, Hide and Seek of African orphaned children paying hide and seek. She has been documenting the HIV/AIDS crisis in Africa. She and Jeff Johnson created three calendars for 2008 where a generous portion of the profits help fund the Saidia Orphanage in Kenya. Saidia - Helping Africa's AIDS Orphans, African Elephant Butts 2008, and African Animal Butts 2008.

I really enjoy visiting with other people who have experienced Africa. Africa touches your heart and your spirit through its natural beauty and resources and through its wonderful people. It encourages me to meet people trying to find ways to help those families struggling with AIDS related issues.
