Fundraiser for Uganda

Quincy-based Zamforia has partnered with nonprofit organization Thrive-Gulu to raise money for school supplies for an African trauma and healing center. According to Jonathan Mendez, co-owner of Zamforia, the fund-raiser started as a poster contest. The drawings of Quincy resident Hannah McNulty, who won the competition last fall, spoke of love in a global sense, and inspired the Quincy company to donate a portion of the proceeds from poster sales to a global organization. After some research, Mendez discovered the Thrive organization. The center is run by Watertown native actress Eliza Dushku; her husband, former NBA player Rick Fox; and Eliza’s mother, Suffolk University professor Judy Dushku. Approximately 150 posters were printed and are being sold on the company’s website for $32 apiece; $10 from each poster goes to the charity. “We will do [a print] a couple times . . . but if we ever print it again, we’ll do different color combos and probably introduce T-shirts as well,” Mendez said.
