Hi there, My name is Ayanna "YaYa" Richardson and I want to talk to you.
You? Yes, You!
You, who are my family and friends that know and love me.
You, whom I have never met but hope to meet throughout this process.
You, whose story and journey is similar to mine.
I am talking to those of you, who are like me and want to see beauty and healing in the world.
I am talking to those of you, who are like me and have big dreams, but also big fears of not being good enough or worthy enough to achieve them.
I am talking to those of us who feel the pull and yearn of the destiny that awaits us.
I am talking to those of us that have been afraid to stand in the fullness of the truth and light of our lives and its inherent worth and value.
I am talking to those us who only know how to give until it hurts and sacrifice until there is nothing left of us.
I am talking to the gifts and talents inside of me and you, whose value and worth are yet unknown.
I am talking to you, who are like me and are living a life of quiet desperation, hoping, wanting and waiting to be heard, seen, validated and valued.
I am talking to those of you who know this life and this journey even if you don't know me.
The purpose of this crowdfunding campaign is to 1) Help me cover the cost of producing and releasing my debut art book which tells the story of my healing and transformation. 2) I will also use this money to help in the official launch of my business, YaYa's Place, a multi-purposed creative arts center that focuses on the life and healing of creative people.
I have been on spiritual journey over the past year and half and it has taught me so many valuable lessons that I would like to share with the world. I will be releasing my debut art book entitled, "The Mirror Has No Judgement". This coffee table, photo, art book will consist of my original artwork and poetry, inspiring short stories, thought provoking quotes and lessons that I have learned along the way. I am on a mission to create and share beauty and healing with the world, one project at a time. This book project will be the first of many that has come as a result of my healing.
As an artist and healer it is my work to share what I have learned with others who are growing through what I have been through. I believe that each of us are born with both a question and an answer. It is our work in life to seek out the answer to our question and to be the answer to other's question. I am excited to do my part and to serve as God has called me to do.
As a backer and supporter of mine, I am happy to send you some cool gifts and goodies as a small token of my thanks and appreciation for your love and generosity.
Other ways you can help:
- Share this Post with friends, family and other people you know that want to bring healing and art to the world!
- Send your positive thoughts and prayers, I always appreciate those!
- Donate whatever you can, in any amount, it's all much appreciated.
Thank you so much for your time and attention and I look forward to talking to you again, soon!!
