How to draw a lion is an art education program created by John Platt to bring hope
and raise funds fororphaned or at-risk children in sub-Saharan Africa.  Each year 
Platt travels to the region and spends months teaching art for schools in Tanzania,
Kenya and Malawi.  The children's original artwork is available for a tax deducitble
 donation.
