I bought a piece from Sherry that now resides in my office so that I can be sure to view it daily. It is a piece that offers something new each and every time I look at it. Her knowledge of horses is evident, as even in abstract, the essence and character a horse can convey comes through. I plan to be a Sherry Baumann collector! --Liza Holland HMS Voice Talent Holland Management Services, Inc..
Sherry is an amazing artist. I e-mailed her with a vague idea for a painting and she made the idea a reality. I live in a different state and I have never met Sherry in person. Despite the geographic distance, Sherry was able to visualize exactly what I wanted and develop the perfect color scheme through telephone conversations. In addition, she regularly e-mailed pictures of her work. She was very responsive to any of my requests, she has great communication skills and I could not be happier with my new painting! I would highly recommend Sherry for her artistic abilities and customer service. --Katie Greene
Darfur has been embroiled in a deadly conflict for over three years. At least 400,000 people have been killed; more than 2 million innocent civilians have been forced to flee their homes and now live in displaced-persons camps in Sudan or in refugee camps in neighboring Chad; and more than 3.5 million men, women, and children are completely reliant on international aid for survival. Not since the Rwandan genocide of 1994 has the world seen such a calculated campaign of displacement, starvation, rape, and mass slaughter.
I wanted to let you know about Mercy Corps, a global relief-and-development organization working in some of the world's most difficult and remote places.
They're in more than 35 countries -- amid disasters, conflicts, chronic poverty and instability -- working to unleash the potential of people who can win against nearly impossible odds. They believe that it's only when communities set their own agendas, raise their own resources and implement programs themselves, that their first successes result in the renewed hope, confidence and skills to continue development.
What's more, their judicious use of donations has earned them the highest efficiency rating from Charity Navigator, America's premier charity evaluator.

Kiva is a non-profit organization that allows you to lend as little as $25 to a specific low-income entrepreneur in the developing world. You choose who to lend to - whether a baker in Afghanistan, a goat herder in Uganda, a farmer in Peru, a restaurateur in Cambodia, or a tailor in Iraq - and as they repay their loan, you get your money back. It’s a powerful and sustainable way to empower someone right now to lift themselves out of poverty.
