Shop for a Cause | Meet the Shops | Beverly Gurganus Fine Art

We have been busy putting together this “Shop for a Cause” event to help raise monies to fight this horrific crime against children, men, and women, and we are so excited for its launch.  Whether you are looking for a gift for a friend or a special treat for yourself, we have something for everyone.

As promised, I am following up my previous post to introduce the participating small shops along with some of the available items you can expect to see.

But before I start the introductions, let me summarize the previous post just in case you missed it.

 I have talked about my burden for children, and more specifically those who are victims of trafficking in past blog posts, but I’m ashamed to say that my voice has been quiet lately.  Life has a way of sneaking up on us and distracting us from some really important issues (not that all distractions aren’t equally important, but they can demand more of our attention than we need to give).

A New Beginning Eco Fashion Presentation and Benefit Gala Update

Beverly Gurganus A New Beginning

Last month I was invited to attend A New Beginning Eco Fashion Presentation and Benefit Gala and bring along some of my Children of the King paintings.

Anywho, I promised to share more about January's event A New Beginning.

The Butterfly house touches a soft spot in my heart as they aim to help rescue and heal children from modern slavery (trafficking) right here in my own backyard by providing them with a long term safe home.  And through my Children of the King: Twirly Dresses collection you can help make a difference in a child's life by contributing to the building of the safe home.
