Trident Literacy Association announces the arrival of the 2013 "Ornament of Hope." Each year we sell the ornament to raise funds for our adult literacy programs in the tri-county.
Whether for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, holidays, or other special occasions, the 'Ornament of Hope' makes a beautiful gift that lasts a lifetime.
Since 1991, at the request of then-Governor Carroll Campbell, local artist, Anne Worsham Richardson, who sadly passed away last year, donated the use of one of her paintings to benefit literacy efforts throughout the state. The exclusive interpretation from watercolor to metal is the work of Elizabeth Anne Neiman at The Charleston Mint.
Mrs. Richardson painted the birds she loved and cared for in her bird sanctuary and designated her ornament choice for several years into the future. This year's painting was especially dear to her. In it she depict the birds many of us have at our backyard feeders. She said, "It's common to see all three species feeding at the same time." As we enjoy Mrs. Richardson's life-like portrayals, they continue to reveal an appreciation and respect for all wildlife and our need to protect our natural resources. The ornament features a Cardinal, Titmouse and Chickadee.
Single ornaments are $15. The matted and framed print is $35 plus $5 for postage. Orders should be sent to: Trident Literacy Association, 5416-B Rivers Avenue, N. Charleston, SC 29406, or you may order online at www.tridentlit.org.
Orders will be accepted until December 8. Delivery time is about one week. Supply is limited. Only 100 ornaments and 25 framed prints are available.
As always, thank you so much for your support!
