Art can make scholars happen!
Welcome! It is my pleasure to introduce you to a wonderful young woman, Ms. Cassondra Lenoir, author of “From Nothing to New York” is a memoir of the author’s childhood into young adulthood from St Louis Missouri to an internship position in New York. Utilizing the power of faith and trusting in God wholeheartedly, Lenoir depicts that anyone can have a “Nothing to New York”. However, the journey to New York is also a lesson in itself.
The author’s mantra “The proof of passion is pursuit” is established through her scholarship foundation, the Cassondra Lenoir Scholarship Fund. Since 2015, the scholarship foundation have already given out four scholarships for first generation college students needing tuition assistance and the like. Many of the scholarships are funded from purchases of her book. Now, Artdify is going to help contribute as well towards the CL Scholarship Fund through art sales.
Starting January 2017, every original piece dated 2012-2014 sold, a significant portion of its proceeds goes towards the Cassondra Lenoir Scholarship Foundation. There would be a piece listed on the blog, from Monday to Friday and once a piece is purchased, you will be directed to another page for further instructions.
Once you purchase a piece, within 4-6 weeks of your purchase date, it is custom framed and shipped to you. Every shipment includes the framed work of art, a certificate of authenticity and a signed copy of “From Nothing to New York”. Below are all of the artwork that would have a portion of its sales for the Cassondra Lenoir Scholarship Fund. Only the original artwork posted on the blog is eligible. Prints and S.E.E.D.S. J1778 (2016) is not a part of your donation. Click on the image and it will send you to a page for purchase. Thank you so much for your support in making this happen! You are helping to see a first generation college student seize one of the steps to become successful.
