Hi Guys!

If anyone can help me out this would be great.. I have started making a few bags to sell at the smaller shows(we go to some big shows  with our art, but jury process does not work with charity art,etc.. anyway) along with a compilation CD i am in the works of making, but am still getting confirmation and permission for the artists.
All proceeds from the CD and some proceeds from the bag(minus mostly overhead & costs) will be given directly to three charities in Ghana(west africa) specifically in a very rural and poor area in the north, called Bolgatanga(or Bolga). The three charities are the Anglican Mother and Baby Home(an orphanage, where I used to work) as well as an organization called Rural Help Integrated(www.ruralhelp.org) that focuses on training traditional birth attendants and midwives in safe medical practices, as well as counselling for those clients who they recognize might be in need of it,etc.. He is a doctor who has worked and written f or the UNFPA, Dr. Kwasi Odoi-Agyarko.

And lastly, Maata 'n' tudu, ("Women of the North'-translated.. ) it is a micro-credit organization, thta is completely self reliant and  self sustaining. Incredibly strong women..

Anyway. I am looking for as many neckties(not making necktie bags, but using them..) and also looking for as many pins(anything with writing/logo,etc..etc..NOT pushpins!) as I can.. PLEASE

IF YOU CAN help email or pm me for an address, if you are in the ottawa area i can pick up.. if you can send me more than 10 ties ill send you a free bag,(would send CD's as well, but I don't have all the  copyright permission yet! sorry!)
