A few things…

Happy New Year dear friend!

I hope this year has started on the right foot and my email finds you well.
A few things I wanted to share with you :

A. You already know that there is a devastating fire going on in Australia r i g h t  n o w.
You probably wished you could help but didn’t know how to go about it.
I wanted to share with you a link to an emergency fund to help wildlife, where you can donate:

I found about this organization through my artist friend from Australia, Tracey Verdugo, and I thought that if all of us donate even a few dollars we can make a real difference!
As a thank you for donating I’m offering a special GIVEAWAY that you can win – my online painting course”Garden Flowers” (worth $65)  (you can read about this course HERE)

1. Donate any amount to Wildlife fund in Australia (or any other fund for that reason, just keep your recept)
2. Comment that you donated on my blog


I will choose 3 random winners from those who donated February 3rd. Thank you and good luck!

I know that not everybody can donate and it’s ok. You can still help by sharing the link to the fund on your social media. Thank you!

B. Paint Your Heart and Soul 2020 starts Wednesday, January 8th!

    I donated. In America I ran an team of whale and dolphin rescue for many years. Animals in need are very close to my heart. I also had a feral (wild house cat) catch, spay/neuter, release program with my vet.
    Best of luck and stay safe! Lisa Denham

    Hi Olga,
    Thanks for helping me figure out how to comment! I lived in Australia for 12 years (and was never going to leave until I met my (now) husband from Albuquerque. I donated and pray that the horrible fires can be brought under control.

    Darling Olga, Thank you so much for posting this. I was having trouble deciding where to donate money to help animals in Australia. This organization looks really good. I donated through PayPal and passed the information on on my Facebook page and my Instagram. In fact, I just noticed that I donated twice! 🤗
