Church at the Well in Vermont sponsors an organization called Signs of Love (SignsofLove.org), which brings dignity to deaf people in the Honduras by giving them the gift of language, specifically sign language.
The operation is small supporting deaf children in nine villages, but brings so much to those children truly in need, we cannot help but want to provide some support.
In the Honduras, as with many third world countries, children with physical disabilities are treated as less-than-human, raised to be slaves or prostitutes, if they even survive. But, in the case of the deaf, in some ways the path out of this animal-like existence can be so simple, and it starts with language – sign language – a way to communicate and think.
We would very much appreciate your bid in The Church at the Well silent auction. Vermonters are donating these seven beautiful 22″ x 26″ framed photographs for bidding. 100 pct of the proceeds will go to SignsofLove.org. Please bid on any one of these wonderful photographs. Minimum bid each (not for all of them, each separately) of $175.00 (but I know you can do better than that – dig deep!).
You can place your bid by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, or completing this Google form. Simply include the dollar amount of your bid, your first and last name, your email or phone number, and select the photo.
