THE ART OF COMPASSION
All images property of For the Children, Inc.
In 1998 following a medical mission trip to Haiti, artist Gary Holland was impressed with the need to aid the orphaned children he had met. A series of paintings resulted from his inspiration, along with his first book, The Children of Haiti. Since that time he founded a nonprofit charity, For the Children, Inc., which uses his paintings, portraits and presentations to raise awareness of the world's poor children. This work funds struggling orphanages in such countries as Haiti, Vietnam, and China. Other series of paintings in progress: Mothers and Children, Children of Vietnam For further information, go to www.forthechildreninc.org.
