OneFarStar, an artwork distribution company, has chosen the Arc of King County as the designated charity for its latest open series poster print ÂWarmth of the SunÂ.
ÂThe Arc provides a valuable service in our communityÂ, says Lori Peha Kezner, Director of OneFarStar. ÂWeÂre pleased to be working with the Arc by helping to raise awareness and funds for them at the same time.Â
"We are so delighted that Lori chose the Arc of King County for one of her wonderful posters. The beautiful collage depicting children dancing in the sunshine celebrates life and the spirit of independence and community living that the Arc promotes for people with developmental disabilities.", Joanne Whitehead, Executive Director, Arc of King County.
OneFarStar produces original artwork and open-series poster prints that directly benefit non-profit organizations. Each time a poster is created a non-profit organization is chosen to receive a permanent donation of %40 each time a print of the artwork is sold. Non-Profits are chosen based on the following criteria:
1) What does the group promote
2) How established is the organization in the community
3) Who are the members
The Arc of King County works in the community by advocating the right of children and adults with developmental disabilities to live, learn, work, and play in the community.
