Paintings Can Help Feed People via Acumen Fund

by Danielle Ford on

One of the things that I do to relax and cultivate inspiration is create paintings. I don’t consider myself a super talented painter but with the help of some embellishments, my paintings usually come out pretty cute. Anyway.. I usually end up giving my paintings away or hanging them up on a wall in my house. Well, now I’m running out of wall space, the paintings are starting to pile up and it’s becoming a pretty expensive hobby. So, I’ve decided to sell them on eBay with 50% of the sale going to the charity Acumen Fund.

Acumen Fund is a non-profit organization that has set out to combat poverty around the globe. I like this charity because they don’t just give handouts to people, they are using new methods and ideas to actually show and teach these people how to create wealth for themselves. It’s like the old saying, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for 1 day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”

If anyone is interested in bidding on my paintings, you can do so here on my eBay page. 50% of the sale will be donated to Acumen Fund no matter how much it sells for.

Here are some examples of my paintings:

“I will be the wings that keep your heart in the clouds. You be the anchor that keeps my feet on the ground.”
