Elizabeth Liechty of Lincoln Financial Advisors was recognized by Invest in Others Charitable Foundation for her leadership, service and lasting impact on the community as part of her Blue Elephant Canvas Project. The Blue Elephant Canvas Project initially started in 2015 as an art project for children under the care of Brits Hospice in South Africa to express their grief creatively. The charitable initiative has expanded to now include a children’s book, “The Blue Elephant”, written by Liechty and published in March 2018, and an animated film that debuted at the Annapolis Film Festival that same month.
Elizabeth received honorable mention in the Global Community Impact Award category for her support for children and families in the hospice system at Hospice of the Chesapeake in Maryland and Brits-Hartbeespoort Hospice in Sub-Saharan Africa.
“Elizabeth truly exemplifies the very best of our organization with her tireless dedication to service and making an impact, at a global level, on communities in need,” said John DiMonda, senior vice president and head of LFA. “We are so proud that her work on behalf of the Blue Elephant Project and in support of children and families in the hospice system has been recognized by this prestigious industry award.”
