Font Fridays - Featuring Hanna

My dad is heading over to Ethiopia in a couple weeks, so I thought I'd feature his new font "Hanna". It was designed to generate additional income for an orphanage in Ethiopia.

Hanna Teshome runs an orphanage of roughly 140 children in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. She is an amazing lady with a deep passion for orphan kids as well as innocent kids that find themselves in jail because their mothers have been imprisoned - they are treated as prisoners and are typically sexually abused - it is not uncommon for them to commit suicide when they are released from jail at age 18. Most of the orphans end up with Hanna because one or both of their parents have died from AIDS.

Hanna relies entirely on donations to keep her orphanage running and this font is a small but tangible way to help make a difference in the lives of the orphan kids. Hope it inspires you to think out of the box when it comes to ways of donating to your favorite charity.
