Hello All!

I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving and are getting ready for a holiday cheer filled December.  I am very excited to announce I am a part of a wonderful opportunity to share Make A Difference (MAD) Art Auction and Exhibit – The Power of Art and Words: Reflections and Illustrations; Art Work Made by Children at Orphanage Shop and Make A Difference in Kilimanjaro, Tanzania Africa”. 

Hosted by Lisa C Williams, ATR at: 

Location:  MING Studios 420 S. 6th Street  Boise, ID 83702  (208)949-4365420

DATE:  Tuesday, December 16, 2014

TIME:  Doors open at 6:00pm; Silent Auction starts at 6:30pm and ends at 8:00pm with special guest speakers starting at 7:00pm. 
MAD’s Founder, Theresa Grant and Art Therapist, Lisa C Williams will be speaking about the benefit art can have on children as well as information about the MAD foundation.

Beverages and light snacks will be provided

See the artwork and poetry made by various children and youth who live at Make A Difference’s (MAD’s) Orphanage in Kilimanjaro, Tanzania Africa.  Bid on your favorites and take them home that night. Art purchases will benefit the Idaho nonprofit, MAD, which creates quality educational opportunities for youth and their schools; all purchases are tax deductible.

If you are unable to attend but are interested in donating to either MAD (or want to learn more about this organization) go to or if you want to help out with the expense of putting the art show together, you can donate to Art Alley Inc through me, just email me at and I will give you the details on how to donate.  Both organizations are 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, thus any contribution you make you will be able to use as a tax deductible donation, however, our hope is you will be able to make it to the event as it is going to be spectacular. 

The show will be at MING Studios 420 S. 6th Street  Boise, ID  83702 (208)949-4365, which is a fabulous new studio and residency program and is currently hosting an amazing international artist resident, Axel Void, whose work will be on display during the art auction as well.  Please go to to learn more about this artist, the studio, and the residency program.

Please pass this information on to anyone you think might like to be a part of this extraordinary night.

Cheers!  Lisa
