30 Paintings in 30 Days: September, 2014—Day 15

OK, It's only Monday, but it's Hump Day the 30 Days challenge! Why not paint a camel? 

In parts of the world too dry for other livestock, Heifer is providing families with camels and training in their care. Camel gift donations change lives by:
  • • Providing milk that can be used for nutrition or sold for income
  • • Boosting income by “hiring out” the camel for hauling goods
  • • Encouraging self-reliance by serving as a means of transportation
Camels are tremendous assets for families in harsh, unpredictable regions such as the African Sahara and parts of Asia. People who receive the gift of a camel find themselves better able to sustain their families while earning a better future for their children.

I hope you take a moment to visit the Heifer Internaitonal website and learn more about ending world hunger "The Heifer Way."


  1. Oh I love his expression. He looks so happy!

    1. Thanks, Bhavani. He looks happy indeed—just like me when I finished it. Good luck with the rest of your 30!

  2. I started laughing when I saw this! Hump day indeed!
