Art for Afghanistan

READ MORE: Art for Afghanistan
One local soldier is going above and beyond the call of duty to take care of her fellow service members. Army specialist Tamara Gabbard is stationed in Afghanistan, but in her spare time, she's an artist. She's developed a project called Art for Afghanistan, in which donated art is shipped to the base for the troops. The art will later be shipped back to New York for an art show, at which, the pieces will be auctioned off. All of the proceeds will help support families of injured or fallen soldiers. "God bless to all the soldiers families out there who are hurting and all the fallen comrades here. I send out my heart to their families. This is what I'm doing this project for; for them," Gabbard said. There will be more Art for Afghanistan art shows throughout the country. If you are interested in donating art or attending a show to give back to the troops visit the Art for Afghanistan link.
