You are invited to contribute to the 105th Singing Tree mural to bring love and peace to those who are suffering in Ukraine.  We will use this project to raise funds for the International Rescue Committee’s work with Ukrainian refugees.  The study for the mural uses the Ukrainian flag for its background, the national tree which is a Viburnum, the roots are holding the heart of the world, the national bird – the Nightingale - singing and calling out, and the map of Ukraine on the earth surrounded by blood and prayer dots.
