Pedrero donates art to Wings of Peace Gala

"A Little Piece of Heaven" 26" x 28" by Robin Maria Pedrero

I have known Barbara Verchot for almost 20 years often crossing paths and joining forces as we both create art and have taken on leadership roles in our communities. I have watched her turn a loving act of covering people with blankets on her first journeys in 1996 to founding Wings of Peace International (WOPI) a non-profit, non-sectarian, grass-roots organization. She established WOPI to bring humanitarian aid to marginalized and vulnerable populations world-wide thereby promoting peaceful global relationships. They are ambassadors laying a foundation of peace making this world a better place, providing more than 200,000 individuals with water systems, school dormitories, a women's cooperative, medication, food and more. WOPI is headquartered in Central Florida with offices in Pimentel, Peru and Bangkok, Thailand.
I have donated "A Little Piece of Heaven" a glorious 26" x 28" pastel for the
Wings of Peace International Annual Gala and Silent Auction.
