  • THERE ARE TWO WAYS OF SPREADING LIGHT: TO BE THE CANDLE OR THE MIRROR THAT REFLECTS IT. - EDITH WHARTON

  • LuminAID EnLightens in multiple ways! Countless children around the world are forced into labor, armed forces, and prostitution.

  • The LuminAID helps to empower young men and, very importantly, women: Although women constitute one half of the world's population, doing two-thirds of the world's work, they are disproportionately provided less opportunity for education, leading to women only earning 10% of the world's income and owning only 1% of the world's property/land. (United Nations, 1979 – with very little change since then)

How the "Sharing the Light" Art-Venture Works

Here's how we'll meet the goal of delivering 100 LuminAIDs to rural families in Ethiopia, together:

All monetary contributions greater than $3 (USD) will be accepted and recorded in the name of individual or group contributors. For every contribution of $3 (USD) you will have a chance of receiving Khaaymar's signed limited edition print entitled "Sharing the Light" and a special feature on Sustainable Earth Art-Ventures' website at the conclusion of the project.

Contribution (or artwork purchase) and entry examples: a $4 contribution = 1 entry; a $6 contribution = 2 entries; a $30 contribution = 10 entries; a $600 contribution = 200 entries; or a $600 artwork purchase = 100 entries [based on the $300 (50%) contributed by [you and] the artist].

Contribute, Sustain a Community, and Also Win!

The three greatest (individual or group) contributors for this Art-Venture goal will be featured on Sustainable Earth Art-Ventures' and Sustainable Earth Adventures' websites, Facebook groups, Google+ Circles, and Twitter Account.

Purchase Art and support a community, simultaneously: 50% of the purchase price of Khaaymar's signed, limited edition, prints (in the gallery, above) will go toward the total project goal of 100 LumiAIDs. Your purchase's contribution portion (i.e., 50%) will be counted toward a chance to win Khaaymar's signature print, "Sharing the Light" and chance to be featured on Sustainable Earth's websites.
