Hands of Mercy – Africa Show

Thank you SO much to everyone who took the time to check out my show and/or came to my opening reception. I truly appreciate it and it was so enjoyable and fun to see everyone and meet some new people!

As promised, I'll be selling all the pictures to go towards sponsorship of children in the Hands of Mercy Orphanage that I volunteered at. Sponsorship helps to provide medical care, educational needs, etc. When I was there Charity and Jacob weren't able to go to school because they didn't have the money for it. Currently, (out of the children in the show) I believe Ruth and King David (yes, that's his name) are not sponsored, but the orphanage has received several new children lately, including some very young infants that needs sponsors. By sponsoring we can have correspondence with the children and I'll post any letters or pictures I receive from the kids. If anyone wants to adopt one of the munchkins you just let me know :).

All the framed pictures will be sold for $150 and the unframed pictures for $100. There is a slight student discount so that it makes it a little easier for you college students to help out too. Contact me for more details on that. If all the pictures are sold we can sponsor 4-7 children for a year!

Each print is 12x18 and the frames are 18x24 fineline black metal frame (they're very thin, I'll post a picture later today when I can get one). The pictures are all toned slightly with an 'antique' tone and printed on metallic paper.

If you live in Utah between Salt Lake and Spanish Fork I'll deliver or you can arrange to pick it up. If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area I'll be driving there October 15th and you can save on shipping by letting me know in advance so I can drive it out!

To order please email me at kelli (at) kellinicolephoto (dot) com.
