Beautiful Brown Eyes

Gina Ruark's avatar Gina Ruark

Black hair. Brown eyes. They are traits that many ethnicities share. This colored pencil flip-book style drawing depicts 5 girls from around the world, representing the endless diversity of these two simple characteristics and the multitudes of impoverished children who share them - and are served by an organization I'm passionate about. Compassion International is a child sponsorship agency that allows people from developed nations to encourage and assist the "poorest of the poor" through hand written letters and monetary provision. For some, the words of their sponsors and of the Compassion staff are the only words of encouragement these children will hear. "Beautiful Brown Eyes" is a reminder that every young girl is unique, beautiful, and worthy of love - and she deserves to be told so.
