I've been watching your show for years and you have become a role model and inspiration. You helped me transition from a dark place in my life when I was struggling with my sexuality. Now, it's my time to lend a helping hand to others and use my talent to share some love with the world.
Eight months ago I stumbled onto FullyRawKristina's YouTube channel. Kristina is a raw vegan who overcame hypoglycemia by eating a raw vegan diet and she shares her passion with the world. I was intrigued by her love for eating healthy which radiates through her videos. At that time, I had just graduated college with a Fine Arts degree and decided to do a drawing series of people who inspire me, Kristina being one of them.
As soon as I posted the drawing of Kristina on Instagram, she reached out to me in complete gratitude. One of the most amazing parts about being a portrait artist is the ability to draw and connect with people that I look up to. Kristina is the founder of the largest raw, organic produce co-operative in the U.S. yet she still took time out of her busy schedule to communicate with me. Because of Kristina, I made some major changes in my life and went vegan with her help and support!
While meditating a few days ago, I came up with the idea to draw another picture of Kristina in an attempt to sell it and donate the proceeds to a charity for hunger.
Ellen, Kristina and I would like to solicit your assistance for our collaborative effort. I was hoping you could help Kristina and I promote this drawing at a wider scale to help those in need! As you always say, be kind to one another.
Thank you again for everything you do!
Sent this letter to her last night! Wish me luck! :)
