This Saturday, Feb. 12th I’ll be participating in a benefit for my good friend Dolores. I’m donating several prints for a silent auction in the hopes of raising enough money to reunite Dolores with her family in Mexico. Dolore’s story can be read here: www.indiegogo.com/dolores
Here’s the details from my homegirl Maya Chinchilla herself:
Instead of a birthday party this year with your help I am throwing a fundraiser for Lolo and her family to reunite with her 4 brothers and sisters that were kidnapped from her mother 34 years ago. This is the only thing I want for my birthday so please help make my wish come true! For more information about their story go here: www.indiegogo.com/dolores

-Warriors tickets donated by Lisa Marie
