Yona Pics for March Arts Marathon

Participant: Yona Shahar

Mission: I plan to take a photograph for each day of March, mostly scenes from nature.

Dear friend,

March Arts Marathon is a fundraiser for Asylum Seekers Assistance Network (ASAN), a project of CVRAN. The work of ASAN is to get asylum seekers out of detention and resettled in Central Vermont. We are already supporting a family of four and plan to take in other asylum seekers this year. Our goal is to raise $15,000 for legal bonds, living expenses, and lawyers’ fees. March Arts Marathon is a community effort: Every day in March, poets and writers and artists and photographers will each send a piece of work to friends and family. And friends and family will donate to support this work. Together we will be helping to welcome new Americans who in turn will add immeasurably to our own communities.

I’ll be taking photographs for the Marathon. Here’s one I took of my living room window the last night of Chanukah; and one from an evergreen in our front yard the next day, after the first substantial snowfall.
