Steveboyy's Dream of Duluth Artwork NOW AVAILABLE on T-Shirts


THE PURPOSE OF THIS BLOG POST IS TO SELL SHIRTS

to raise money for  STEVEBOYYI. 

I first met Steveboyy Makubuya in early 2017. He'd been sponsored by a church in our region to visit on a temporary visa. Despite the inhospitable Northern Minnesota weather, he fell in love with our city. A talented young artist with a wide grin and big heart, he's currently back in Kampala, Uganda, but he dreams of Duluth.

Multiple shirt styles and colors to choose from.
Those who read his story here may recall that he has no knowledge of who his parents were or when his birthday was. He didn't even have a name. He was found on a sidewalk when nine months old, raised for several years in an orphanage until the children's home closed when he was in his teens.

Since returning to Kampala he has been helping occasionally at an orphanage run by Idah Menanghe where he is much loved by the children.

EdNote: IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HELP FEED ORPHANS whose needs are real, but you don't know who you can trust or where to give, I can tell you how to make a contribution that makes a difference.
EdNote 2: These kids love Steveboyyi. He's also helped paint buildings there and make art with these children.

IS TO SELL SHIRTS
WITH STEVE'S ART ON IT

WITH THE HOLIDAYS COMING, THESE SHIRTS CAN MAKE GOOD GIFTS FOR FRIENDS, FAMILY, CHILDREN OR EVEN GRANDCHILDREN. Or if you get Christmas money from home, you can buy one for yourself. The shirts come in several styles, with the singular artwork by Steveboyyi. Here's the Link at BONFIRE.

If you would rather donate directly to Steveboyyi's Youth Outreach: Read more about this initiative. Follow this link: Go Fund Me: Dream of Duluth

The T-shirt art was designed by Steveboyyi Makubuya. His first love is making art and he has become quite skilled at it.

HERE'S THE BOTTOM LINE
We need to sell 25 shirt in the next 19 days in order for Bonfire to print any. Please share this post with your friends.
