Painter Kinkade Partners with Habitat on 'Hometown Pride'
AMERICUS, Georgia, July 1 - Painter Thomas Kinkade today unveiled his newest release, Hometown Pride, which was created to commemorate the spirit of hometowns across America and also will generate proceeds for Habitat for Humanity International.
"At Habitat for Humanity, we are grateful for the support and generosity of partners like Thomas Kinkade to make sure people in need have a simple, decent place to live," said Millard Fuller, founder and president of Habitat for Humanity International. "We feel blessed that this artistic gift honoring the American community will help build better communities."
Kinkade is America's most-collected living artist, a painter-communicator whose
tranquil, light-infused paintings inspire millions of collectors each year.

serenity of life in everyday neighborhoods across America," Kinkade says.
