JFY Advocates Stasia and Chelsey, a mother and daughter team, are in Thailand right now, working with Home of the Open Heart in Chang Rai, near the Myanmar (formerly Burma) border. Home of the Open Heart provides a place of refuge for HIV positive children. Chelsey brings this report:

Garin is one of the amazing children here at home of the open heart where my mother and I are staying in Thailand. Garin has such an incredible story. My mum and I will hopefully be bringing some of his beautiful paintings back to America to auction for him for his second surgery and other needs of the home. Please watch this touching video.

Stasia brings this report:

I have an opportunity for you all. Garin has a few of his limited edition prints of his very first painting available for purchase. These are gorgeous prints and all proceeds go to his next ear surgery. Please contact me if you would like me to make sure that you get one. (I plan on purchasing one before I leave. )
