Mamacita Chilena over at Just Married Chilean Style is running a charity art project to support a co-worker of her husband, Marcelo, who is planning to go back to school for his Tecnico en Construccion. He makes too much for government support, but not enough to support his family and pay for school. The jobs he would be qualified for if he completed his degree would allow him to advance his career and support his family and fiance.
Mamacita has made the commitment to sponsor his education when he goes back to school in March '09 as long as he stays committed to school because she wants to help Marcelo further his goals as people did for her as she was growing up. To help with the costs she is using all of the proceeds from the sale of her fine art prints from October 6th to November 6th to pay for Marcelo's school fees.
The prints are gorgeous and the money goes to a good cause. If you're thinking about buying art or gifts for friends and family during the holidays, have a look at her site. You'll be able to buy originals from an artist who is just starting her career.
I had a hard time deciding, but finally ordered these two.
