Emmanuel Martinez went from stranger to hero in seconds!
I had a brief, but highly inspirational conversation with Emmanuel over the phone. He invited me to his website, EmmanuelMartinezArt. I scanned his website while speaking to him, focusing on his wonderful artwork. I invite you to do the same; he has a compelling autobiography that will definitely inspire you to help Emmanuel in his causes.
Emmanuel has his artwork, on display, at The Lydia Project of Augusta, GA. According to the “About Us” page on The Lydia Project website,
“The Lydia Project provides free services to women any where facing any type of cancer. This support includes ongoing correspondence and encouragement every month for at least twelve months.
Locally, Lydia grants funds for rent, utility, medical supplies, and prescription assistance to women who are unable to afford these basic expenses while undergoing cancer treatment and who reside in Georgia’s Burke, Columbia, McDuffie and Richmond Counties; and South Carolina’s Aiken and Edgefield Counties. The project is named for Lydia, who appears just briefly in the Bible (Acts 16: 14-15).”
Emmanuel gratefully accepts donations of painting supplies. Supplies can be sent to him at Emmanuel Martinez, c/o Cynthia P. Grimley, 100 Old Cherokee Road, Suite F-226, Lexington, SC 29072. Please feel free to send art purchasing or display requests to this same address.
