Finding Forever Exhibition FREE and items for sale to benefit Children in Foster Care

Yo Clubbers, 

Pam Kinsmith is working on a project to bring awareness to kids in the foster care system. Click on her link below for the prospectus and details. She is not asking for a donation - all work is for sale and all proceeds will either go to the cost to put on the event (all hours worked are volunteer) and Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange or to you.

Here is her letter:
I would like to invite your members to participate in a very special cup show this November, National Adoption Month, in Western Massachusetts. The attached letter explains my desire to bring attention to the kids in the foster care system through a showcase of cups and mugs each representing a child. The prospectus is also attached for your consideration. There is no cost to participate and I am not asking for donations of work. Feel free to contact me with any questions. I hope to hear from you soon!

I would like to offer a mug for your event. I am a social worker, and worked most of my career with children in foster care, and those looking for forever homes. Let me know if this is ok.
