This fund raising event is geared towards raising money for the development and launch of our website - SketchingforCharity.com. Thank You!

To raise this money we are inviting the public to be on the senders list for a gift giving to Ms. Oprah Winfrey. We will be giving her one of our in-house sketches titled - " O - THE PERFECT GIFT FOR OPRAH FROM THE PEOPLE BY THE PEOPLE"- Size:(w38"xh32") Dated: March 2007.

Over the years we have watched Ms. Oprah Winfrey give of herself to the masses, departing wisdom, advise and opportunities. We think it only make sense to invite the public in saying thank you to her, by adding their name to the sender's card - This sketch is capturing one of her most memorable achievement. - The openning of the Oprah Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa.

Every donor's name/state/country will be added to the list of senders from whom the gift is from. Please make sure your name and state/country is spelt correctly as you would like to see it appear on the card.

About sketch:

The following piece was done in March 2007, months following the opening of the Oprah Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa. The Artist who wish to remain anonymous, said the idea to sketch this piece first came to him after he read about the huge undertaken and achievement by Oprah and her network. He explained, " In some weird way if you can't share in the moment's experience,one would hope by spending the time to relive that moment in translating a still image on paper using a simple pencil would somewhat bring one closer to the experience shared at that exact time.
