Last week, I received a lovely surprise in the mail. The Shoreline Center for Eating Disorder Treatment (Satori House) sent us another great package of postcards and a lovely letter! Last year, we received a package of beautiful postcards from them, which were made during one of their Art Therapy programs. The postcards that they sent were beautiful and poignant and one was even chosen for our calendar!
This week, we received another package from the Centre as well as a touching letter telling us how much the project has meant to them. I have to say, reading the letter and reading the postcards that were sent along with it brought tears to my eyes! I want to thank the Centre for using the Dreams for Women project and for sending us their postcards! It means a lot to us. Thank you to all the women who contributed to our project.
I would also like to remind everyone to pick up their Dreams for Women 2009 calendar! Check it out here! Buy one for yourself, buy a bunch for your friends as gifts or buy copies to sell as a fundraiser for your non-profit organization!
Antigone Magazine is facilitating a Feminist Postcard art project! We want to know what your Dreams for Women are.What are your own dreams for yourself, your friends, your sisters, your daughters? Paint, draw, write, sketch or decoupage your dreams on a postcard and send it to the address below:
C/O WILLA UBc

With your postcard submission, we ask that you make a donation (if you can!) to Antigone Magazine for anywhere from $1 to $10. You can send your money along with your postcard or donate on our blog: http://www.antigonemagazine.wordpress.com/
But don’t worry… if you don’t have the money, just send along the postcard and tell people about this program.
