Love Without Boundaries Art Auction

Love Without Boundaries is a nonprofit organization that helps Chinese orphans, from foster care to school fees to nutrition programs to medical care. Four years ago, LWB began their "Born in My Heart" art auction to raise funds for essential heart operations. The auction is online at eBay, and runs from May 18-23. Items will be added throughout the day on Friday, May 18th and the auction will end Wednesday, May 23rd when the final item closes.

From an email about the auction from the LWB Art Auction Committee: “This year we have approximately 250 amazing items, all donated by our fabulous supporters! Just a few of the items you won't want to miss are: an autographed guitar from Steven Curtis Chapman, THREE giclee prints of "Bengbu Girl"…an incredible oil painting created especially for LWB by Zhao Kailin, a life-size Terra Cotta Warrior statue from Xian, several personalized custom lifebooks, beautiful watercolors, acrylics and oil paintings, collection-edition dolls, custom adoption videos, a stunning array of quilts including several "100 Good Wishes" quilts, photography, gift baskets, jewelry, paintings by Chinese orphans, clothing, heritage items, and so much more!”

Last month, one of the LWB volunteers contacted me after seeing some of the photos on this blog. She asked if I would consider donating a photograph for the art auction. Of course I said yes! So go to the auction and see if you can spot my donation. And bid early and bid often!

Starting Friday, you will be able to access the auction from the Love Without Boundaries homepage. In the meantime, check out the website to see all the remarkable things LWB does for Chinese orphans.
