Pushing Daisy Tuesday Tribute is a series of posts promoting the Pushing Daisy Drive (Driven by Miss Daisy’s Daughter). Every episode is a small tribute to my mom Daisy and hopes to share inspirational posts and promotions. It’s also were I acknowledge Daisy Drive Donors and share campaign updates.
In this episode, I’m kicking off the “Shots of Bee-U-Tiful Spots
“ Series, one of two fundraising series that promotes photographers and programs on St. Croix, US Virgin Islands. When you Pay What You Want (PWYW) for the featured photo donated by the featured photographer, you’ll also be contributing to the Pushing Daisy Drive, as well as other featured youth programs on St. Croix.
“Shots of Bee-U-Tiful
Spots“- Fyah Burning
The “Shots of Bee-U-Tiful Spots” Series features the exceptional photography of Sneferu Hotep, founder of Egiptian Church of Karast A’ashuq Youth & Prison Ministries. His eye for the perfect shot at the perfect spot is definitely hot (lol!).
History of Fyah Burning on St. Croix
Whether it be the historic “Fireburn” Labor Rebellion on Oct. 1, 1878 or the fire burning at a Rasta ceremony with Nyabinghi drumming and chanting, St. Croix is no stranger to fyah burning. This shot was taken at an African Liberation Day celebration. I’m sure my mother, the rebel and Zulu Queen Daisy would like this one!
Sneferu Hotep is the founder and force behind the nonprofit Egiptian Church of Karast A’ashuq Youth & Prison Ministries. Their mission is to compassionately provide a supportive environment while uplifting and empowering all families in the Virgin Islands and surrounding areas. Through Agricultural, Educational, Spirit Counsel, and Youth Centered activities, the ministry addresses community issues by way of A’ashuq ”Divine Love”. A portion of the photo sales will go toward funding their signature program in an upcoming crowdfunding campaign. We Shoot Flutes, is an Agriculture, Art, and Music exploration program centered in cultural awareness and peace promotion directed toward children between the ages of 7-13. Stay tuned for more information on their crowdfundraiser.
