48,283 – That’s the number of hearts that Ron Lehocky has created for his Kids Project since 2005. Year by year he moved the goalposts and predicts he’ll crack 50,000 in 2021. Each heart raises $10.
When Ron put out the word, scraps from artists far and wide started arriving. He transforms scrap into heart brooches. This scrap is from Canada’s Susan Andrews. Ron rolled, twisted, and textured her cane end into all these variations.
“I certainly have enough “remnants” from generous and supportive fellow polymer artists to help me reach the goal,” Ron says. Happy Valentines Day to our King of Hearts.
“And the 500?” you ask? This Saturday’s StudioMojo is my 500th edition of the weekend insider’s newsletter. Hard to believe where one step after another will get you! I’m turning 500! Come celebrate with your StudioMojo friends.
Congratulations. Wonderful achievements by both?
Congratulations in advance to both of you! I know you will meet those goals, and blow past them. And WE benefit!
Thank you both for your generosity as well, as you continue to inspire us, and show us how it’s done.
Amazing number. I rarely make hearts, but I wish both of you all the best from the bottom of my heart and thank you for your generocity and every day inspiration.
