Malanda Schmitz Florida Artist, Custom Art Specialist
Again this year I've donated original art to non-profits where 100% of the proceeds to to the charity. Thank you for purchasing my art at these events and for purchasing my custom art. Together we are making a difference.
Children are our future. I'm very happy to have volunteered my services to the Children's Home Inc. I donated this painting which was sold at their Stars and Pars Gala and Auction. Dr. Mike Ramsey and his wife Lynn bought, Full Moon Celebration for $3,500, 100% of the proceeds went to CHI. They then graciously donated it back to the Children's Home to hang at The Children's Home Healing Campus.
Over the course of a year, CHI will touch the lives of over 15,000 children and adults, by Strengthening Families through prevention and outreach, Finding & Supporting Families, and Healing the Trauma of Abuse and Neglect.
Over the years I've also volunteered as a graphic designer for the design of the Children's Home Inc. newsletter.
I met UTSI at a demonstration in Safety Harbor which resulted in donating one of my paintings to the Marshall Legacy Institute for auction during their 2009 Gala in DC.
During the auction, the portrait I painted of Utsi sold for $4,500, 100% went to MLI.
The cost of acquiring, training and delivering a certified mine detection dog to a contaminated country is approximately $20,000.

My experience with the MLI Gala auction was especially sweet because after the event I was invited to a suite where the my painting was presented to Kimberly, Utsi's handler. It was her birthday and the painting hangs in MLI headquarters.
