To all artists, volunteers and supporters,
First I would just like say how grateful The Cradle Project is for all of your support. The Cradle Project was a huge success, with 555 contributing artists and more than 5,000 visitors during the course of the exhibit. On the opening day of the exhibit alone we counted over 2,000 people walking through the doors!
Thanks to all of your creative support, encouragement, and donations, The Cradle Project raised over $90,000 through sponsorships, our cradle auction, and sales of The Cradle Project publication. All of these funds were donated to our partner organization, the Firelight Foundation. For those of you who are unfamiliar with our partner, The Firelight Foundation awards grants to small grassroots initiatives that are directly addressing the needs of children affected by HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa. www.firelightfoundation.org <http://Www.firelightfoundation.org>
On behalf of all of us who volunteered to make this project a success we cannot thank you enough for your continued and overwhelming support. The final exhibit was an incredibly moving experience for many of the artists volunteers and viewers.
After organizing this project and its many details for nearly three years, it was through the brimming eyes of the exhibit's visitors that I finally realized the tremendous impact The Cradle Project had on our community.
Thank you again for the many ways that you helped realize this vision for The Cradle Project. The beautiful full color publication that highlights eighty of the cradles is still available for sale through the Firelight Foundation's website. If you have not yet seen this book, I highly recommend you check it out.
