ARTISTS FOR WORLD PEACE INC
March 1, 2010

Wendy pretty much is the one-woman dynamo behind this foundation; with her unwavering enthusiasm, optimism, and energy, she provides a true example of making an impact at the grassroots level. Her life, and her foundation, exemplifies the concept of enriching community through the arts. As just one example, the annual "Hats for a Cause" event brings together any interested volunteers who work together to design, create and sell fleece hats. This is truly a group effort where members learn specific skills from each other and are inspired to create functional art pieces beyound their imaginings, and which is in itself community-building, and enriching in a life-changing way for many of the younger -- and older!-- members. The proceeds from the first years' event were sufficient to build and staff a safe house in Cambodia for battered women and their children, which is literally saving lives. That is powerful stuff.
