Hello hello lovely wordpressers!
Today I want to share a little haul that is worth sharing with you all!
So since I still prefer giving greeting cards to people on special occasions, I thought that instead of buying cards from the usual archies store, I’d buy the cards from a meaningful place, and that is how I stumbled upon IMFPA- Mouth And Foot Painting Artists.
About IMFPA: The is an international, registered society of disabled artists, wholly owned and run by the artists themselves to meet their financial needs. Members paint with brushes held in their mouth or feet as a result of a disability sustained at birth or through an accident or illness that prohibits them from using their hands.
With over 800 artists from 74 countries, the MFPA instills in its artists a sense of self-respect and dignity that comes from earning an independent, honest and secure livelihood through the sale of their artwork.
In India, the Association currently supports 20 member artists from across the country; The artists come from a diverse cultural background spread across the states of Maharashtra, Jammu & Kashmir, Gujarat, Uttaranchal, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Kerala. Members work individually from their homes and regularly submit artworks to the Association.
They have the most beautiful collection of paintings by these amazing people and these paintings are further printed on things like mugs, calendars, etc.
Here’s what I got from them!
So pretty! Cannot wait to use them. Its good to see how we can make a difference in people’s lives, even while we’re shopping.
So that is it for today. Let me know what you think in the comments down below, until next time. Thankyou for stopping by!
