If you've read our last blog entry (see below), you already are familiar with how My Good Greetings worked with Linda Lee to create custom notecards featuring the artwork by children in the Cambodian orphanage. What I didn't mention, when I wrote that entry, was that the reason the drawings were outlined and not colored in was because the children at the orphanage did not have any colored markers. When I learned this, it broke my heart. Being a graphic designer in the US- and someone who takes so much prosperity for granted, my heart ached when I learned that these children with their big, bright smiles, didn't have colors for their wonderful artwork. I immediately decided that I would put together a care package of colored markers and my assistant Dawn added loads of colored pencils and sharpeners. We boxed it all up and mailed it off to the orphanage with a friendly note. Never in my wildest dreams did I expect to receive these wonderful photos back in return. Just look at these darling kids. I wish them many happy drawings!
