Rebecca Peragine's world map poster is beautifully designed, with sweet images of the people and animals who inhabit different regions. What's special about this art, though, is that buying it will help less fortunate children and families, and hanging it in your child's room could serve as a perpetual reminder to show compassion for others.Peragine teamed up with Future Fortified, a campaign from Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition, to donate all the proceeds from this poster to help children and families in Kenya. Each poster costs $40, and those funds will provide a month's worth of nutrients to 20 children in Kenya and contribute food and education to their families.
The print's map of the world is captioned with a banner that reads, "Compassion for the Earth and all who inhabit it," a daily mantra that many parents will find powerful. Whether you choose to explain the impetus behind the art now or later, you are already instilling a sense of the world and others' needs.
