Well, it is finally finished! I have created this shrine for the online auction to benefit Oaxacan street children, which will take place in March. (more details to come!)

Rebecca Brooks, a woman with a very big heart and extreme love of Latino culture, is organizing this fabulous event again this year. If you are interested in donating a cigar box shrine for this event, there is still time, and you can contact her thorugh her wonderful blog, "Recuerda Mi Corazone".

I have a very special place in my heart for the people of Oaxaca, especially the children. If you would like to see some of my photos of my trip there in 2007, please visit my Flickr site. I will keep you posted on more details of this fabulous auction as I receive more information.
