Get Your Shrine On
Here's an update on the cigarbox shrine acuction that is happening at Mi Corizan, Rebecca's blog, this week.
This is what she has say about the auction: "This site was created to host an annual art auction benefiting Oaxaca Streetchildren Grassroots, a project endeavoring to support the needs of a predominately indigenous population. These children are the ones diligently selling small handmade crafts, roses and dulces on the zocalo for long hours hoping to save enough money to finally attend school. This is a hand-to-mouth culture and the effort of saving up the required cost of uniforms, books, and supplies keeps most from ever achieving this longed-for goal.
Oaxaca Streetchildren Grassroots is dedicated to providing a multilayered approach to assist children and their families in skills that insure their own independence and success.
Thanks for visiting our shrine gallery. One hundred percent of the funds generated in the upcoming auction will go directly to Oaxaca Streetchildren Grassroots."
The Auction went live on Saturday April 17 and run for a week. Be sure to visit and have a look at all the amazing shrines that will be up for the auction.
