On the 16th of November, we were able to deliver more Young at Art bags! This time they were given to Shriner's Hospital for Children. What a wonderful organization!
Shriner's Hospital for Children provides orthopaedic care regardless of the family's ability to pay.
Laura Lewis told us that "we love the children to still be kids even though they are in a hospital. Kids love to be creative. The art bags will allow the kids to be just
that--creative. Being creative allows you an escape. For patients at Shriner's Hospital, the escape is sometimes just what the doctor ordered."
MJ Miller, Director of Development said, the art bags "will help make a difference in the lives of the children we serve and further our mission. By working together we can truly build a better tomorrow for kids."
These comments tell us that what we are doing is worthwhile and needed. We hope you will join us in our efforts to provide all children with inspiration and tools to discover the wonderful world of art. When you purchase a Young at Art bag, you will receive a bag for a child on your list, and we will then give one to a child in a hospital or shelter.
Together we can make
(Young at art bags make great Christmas gifts... just sayin'...) ;)
