On Thursday November 13th, Pure Art Co-Founders Brigitte & Robert McKinnon travelled to Kingston, Ontario to visit some of our youngest supporters at École Secondaire Marie-Rivier. For the past 5 years, these high school students have been committed to selling the Foundation’s annual christmas card collection. By raising funds for the purchase of uniforms and school supplies, 8 Peruvian students enrolled in our One School for All Initiative are able to attend school daily.

We are so touched by the hard work & dedication displayed by these 191 students at Marie-Rivier, who have committed to selling our 2014 edition of the Foundation’s christmas card collection. Illustrated by Sebastian McKinnon, this year’s collection will be available at the Boutique by Wednesday November 18th.

Celebrating six years of a wonderful partnership, we are thrilled to announce that Silva Isabel Navarro Ahuanari, one of the students, sponsored by École Secondaire Marie-Rivier over the past 5 years, is now enrolled in university!
