One on One
10.5" H x 11" W x 5" D
Bronze edition of 25
While I was working on "One and One" I decided this would be a good sculpture to add to my "FINCA sculptures line". I was fortunate to be able to provide for my children who are now adults, but there are thousands of women and children who go without life's basic needs. I'd like to help these families.
As with the sculptures HOPE and Grace, I decided that 10 percent of the sales price would be donated to the FINCA organization. FINCA helps women and their families by giving them micro-loans which enable them to own small businesses.
I will donate 5 percent and have asked the galleries who represent me to donate 5 percent of the sales price. Every time this sculpture is purchased, some women and their children will have the opportunity for a better future.
The founder of FINCA, John Hatch, believed that the best way to help children was to increase their mother's capacity to take care of them.
FINCA (The Foundation for International Community Assistance) established in 1984 offers loans, not gifts, to women and their families and promotes financial independence.
The FINCA organization provides micro-loans ($50.00-$1,000.00) to the world's poorest families, so they can create their own jobs, raise household income and improve their standard of living.
