ABC 12

Think about something you are good at. Something you are beyond passionate about. Think about someone recognizing that particular talent - and asking you to share it with the world. How incredible would that be? That is exactly what happened to one local artist.

Swartz Creek resident and artist David Hanson recently received a life-changing email. Hanson was asked out of the blue to show his art at the Parallax Art Fair in London. Can you imagine? Of course, his answer was YES. There is just one problem - money.

As you will see and hear in the video below, Hanson has had a rough go of it the last few years, including losing his wife last year to cancer. One of David's nephews put together a GoFundMe page to raise money for his trip. You can read his very kind words and donate here. One thing his nephew included on the GoFundMe page is the fact that this would be a new beginning for his uncle. Indeed it would. Good luck David.
