The Problem

I want to help remedy the lack of exposure of the Jane Goodall Institute, as well as Roots and Shoots, in my community. My project will provide an opportunity to educate others on the work of the Jane Goodall Institute as well as Roots and Shoots. The story behind the name, Elpis Art, dates all the way back to Ancient Greece. Elpis was the "spirit" of hope. She carried around a cornucopia or flowers, but was not seen as a goddess. The Greeks feared her, as she was associated with suffering. To have hope, you must be brave enough to know that suffering may come, and that your heart may be broken. Though there is still the chance of great joy with hope, which sometimes makes the pain worth the reward.

Our Plan

My project will raise money for JGI via hand-drawn designs onto cards which I will sell in my community and beyond. The card stock is made out of recycled materials and comes with matching envelopes. The different sketched designs on the cards will be unique and nature-inspired. I will charge $10.00 for a pack of 5 cards and $18.00 for a pack of 10 cards.
