Generation Hope, a non-profit organization that my daughter, Nicole Lynn Lewis founded, provides direct sponsorships and one-on-one mentoring support to teen parents in the Washington, DC area who are attending college. On June 29th, they held their 1st annual Gala, "Pep Rally Under the Stars", celebrating their first year of successful scholars. It was a huge success!!! Proceeds from the event will go to their Scholar Program, funding field trips, trainings, the Emergency Scholar Fund, and expenses to keep the program running.
I promised to keep you posted on the large collage, Hope, that I created from the colorful paintings and prints that the Scholars, their children and mentors made during 2 previous workshops that I hosted. The collage, symbolizing the spirit of Generation Hope, was auctioned off at the event. I also created 4 greeting cards that were sold to raise funds for the program. An Artful Collage Embodies the Dreams of Generation Hope!
