Win A Painting, Help Darfur!

Here is your chance to own one of Enzie Shahmiri's paintings and help a Darfur refugee at the same time. Put Oct. 8th on your calendar and bid to win.

"This painting is a concrete way to provide humanitarian relief to the hundreds of thousands of people--mainly women and children--who have been forced to flee the unspeakable violence in Darfur. The proceeds from the sale of this work on ebay will go directly to support the UN Refugee Agency's operations in Darfur, providing protection, shelter, water, medical care and education. Please support this work!

I am finally back home in Austin and it's been a real pleasure seeing you posting again. This is a worthy cause and I am thrilled that you have written about Enzie's fundraiser. The world is a better place because of you and other artists whose heart is in the right place.
