FREEPORT, Grand Bahama -- The Grand Bahama Children's Home was the recipient of $500 from local artist Leo Brown and his publisher recently. Leo, as he is well-known, is a Bahamian Impressionist whose works are in demand both locally and internationally.
Recently, he teamed up with Daniel Lowe, President of Bahamas Printing & Publishing, to create a series of greeting cards, making his work more accessible and affordable to mainstream audiences. In creating the box of 10 litho, quality cards and envelopes, both also felt it was important to give back to the community. To this end, Leo and Mr. Lowe have committed to donating part proceeds of these cards, for a full year, to the G.B. Children's Home.
"We are very blessed by this donation," said Geneva Rutherford, GBCH Executive Committee, "Leo and Daniel have not only created a beautiful keepsake gift for visitors and residents, but they are also helping us keep the children safe in our Home. We thank them so very much!"

Leo's cards are on sale at Leo's Art Gallery, Bahamas Printing & Publishing and the Art of Giving.
