The event was organized by @DCTweetdrive and @stephmajercik as part of a nation-wide toy and clothing drive. The goal of Tweetdrive is to use social media to provide for less fortunate children and spread holiday cheer.
The local beneficiary was the Central Union Mission, a nonprofit organization that provides toys during the holidays to about 2,000 children.
I had the pleasure of attending the Artists for Charity 4th Annual Holiday Benefit on Saturday, December 4th at the WVSA Gallery(1100 16th Street, NW) in Washington, DC.
Artists for Charity (AFC) is a non-profit organization that operates a Children’s Home for HIV-positive double orphans in Ethiopia. The turnout for the event was incredible! People from the throughout the DC metropolitan area community came together to take part in the benefit’s art auction, as well as sample Ethiopian culture.
