The "Art" of Giving~ Part 1 A Cross Catholic Project We Can All Support!

I am honored to be one of several bloggers
 sharing and promoting the mission
 of an amazing organization, 
 as they work to feed, help and support
 poverty stricken families of Honduras.
My friend and fellow blogger, 
Jennifer of Catholic Inspired,
introduced this amazing charity to me and a few other Catholic bloggers
as she continues to share their work.
I'm delighted to be part of a team which includes
these bloggers~
Jennifer from Catholic Inspired 
Birgit from Designs By Birgit
 who are publicizing 
Cross Catholic's  herculean efforts!

Thank you for clicking over to read up on this project,
 to share their work 
and to potentially get involved in this massive effort with your own family! 

~How adorable are these sweet little faces?~

Let me tell you a little about Cross Catholic's project,
The Art of Giving and specifically how we can all support them
in bringing food and necessities to so many more
sweet babies.

How you can  get involved in The Art of Giving:

To easily  help the impoverished of Honduas:
1. Your  kids, grandkids, nieces, nephews, class can draw/color/create an art project.
2.  Parents/guardians  take a picture of it (or scan it) and send the image to Cross Catholic right here.:

How we can donate to Cross Catholic:
Once the image is uploaded onto the slideshow, parents, family members and friends can make donations on behalf of the child's artwork to Cross Catholic Outreach. When donating  place the child's name in the comment box. The donations will be used to feed impoverished children and families in El Progreso, Honduras at the Prince of Peace Nutrition Center. 

Who can submit artwork to Cross Catholic?
Art projects will be accepted from kids of all ages - from toddlers to teens! This would really be a great project for teachers and RE teachers, as well as, any homeschooling family! Youth groups may like to do this as a service project, too. 

Viewing the lovely slideshow:

My kids are getting psyched to create and share their work in support
 of  The Art of Giving! 
Please visit next week  when those of us on the blogging team will  be posting our children’s art and inviting all  bloggers  to join in a link-up to share
 the art that their kids have created for this event!
On December 9, the link up will go live!

We look forward to viewing YOUR children's,
 grandchildren's and/or classes' artwork as well,
 as we support the efforts of the
selfless individuals at Cross Catholic
who help our Central American
 brothers and sisters!

As always, thank you, readers and friends,
