Hello, website visitors—
If you have perhaps begun to contemplate holiday gift purchasing, I hope you’ll consider the woodturnings I’ve made over the last year, for purchase on-line at: https://www.etsy.com/shop/EricReevesWoodturner
All proceeds from all sales go to Save the Children, supporting their work in South Sudan, arguably the site of the greatest humanitarian crisis in the world today. Tens of thousands have died in the past eleven months, almost 2 million have been displaced, and the upcoming dry season ominously portends more fighting, amidst which civilians—primarily women and children—suffer most. Malnutrition rates are terrifying.
Once in the field, money goes a very long way in supporting operations such as those of Save the Children (which uses approximately 90 percent of revenues received for field operations). I hope you’ll help me help them.
All profits realized by the artist are donated to international relief efforts in Sudan
