Let Love Grow {the love project}

This summer my second son, Jack, will have a procedure to repair a hole in his heart. When he was 1 month old we found out was born with a atrial septal defect and pulmonary stenosis. We were so scared to find out our child may have to have procedure or even open heart surgery, but at the same time we had hope and peace because we knew he would have amazing doctors and quality healthcare. Not once did I have to worry that my child would not receive the care he needs; I know we are fortunate beyond measure. So when Ashley shared with me about The Love Project I knew I had to be a part.
The Love Project is working to provide for families around the world parenting children with heart disease. These families are faced with the horrible realities of leaving their children to suffer or abandoning them due to financial limitations. The Love Project requires significant funding and that is where other creatives and I are joining together to donate artwork for sale to go to the Love Fund. All funds raised go directly to families in need of assistance to provide life-saving surgeries for children with operable congenital heart defects.
A special online shop has been created filled with 17 original downloadable prints available for purchase. Our hope is that you would join us in providing life saving surgeries and helping preserve families by purchasing a print.
I've created this watercolor painting below for sale in The Love Project Shop. I hope you will consider joining us in growing the Love Fund by purchasing one of the beautiful prints for sale or even by making a donation directly to The Love Project (there is a place at the bottom of this page to do so).
