Had a meeting last night with a woman named Linda Lewis who runs a great non-profit in Elk River, MN named Hoofbeats and Heartbeats. It is an equestrian learning center that is dedicated to providing therapuetic riding and teaching to individuals with emotional and physical disabilities, elderly, and the youth. I wanted to let you guys know that you can help places like this and other causes by simply searching for everyday things on a site called GoodSearch. Everytime you search for something, the cause of your choosing gets a penny. It doesn’t sound like much, but how many times do we search for things online? Every penny counts! If you would like to send your search pennies to Hoofbeats, simply type in Hoofbeats and Heartbeaks (Elk River).
In my art news, I have secured a date for the show at Homewood Studios for June 13th thru July 2, 2008. I know it is a year off but it will come soon enough. I also am putting the final touches on the workshop that I will be teaching this sunday for the Minnesota Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. It should be a great time. Stay tuned for some other exciting news that has recently been in the works!!!
