Because of my Aunt Kathleen, my mother’s youngest sister,
Because my mother in law always said “We are here to be good to each other”
Because I was blessed with the chance to illustrate this beautiful book for Shereee Fitch
Because I want the rugs to have some meaning
I have decided to have them auctioned off and all the proceeds will go to L’arche Atlantic
L’Arche is an international federation of communities where men and women with intellectual disabilities, and those who choose to share life with them, live and work together.
Founded by Canadian Jean Vanier in 1964, L’Arche now has more than 125 communities in 40 countries. In Atlantic Canada there are currently five established L’Arche communities: L’Arche Antigonish, L’Arche Cape Breton, L’Arche Halifax, L’Arche Homefires and L’Arche Saint John.
There are two groups currently working to build new L’Arche communities in Atlantic Canada: Willow Tree Community, Fredericton, NB and Cornerstone Housing Society, St. John’s, NL.
