Healing Art Boxes

When There are no Words, There is Art


Healing art boxes campaign

 

Our annual Healing Art Box campaign provides the gift of art to 1,200 underprivileged children suffering from illness grief or stress.

The 2018 campaign is underway and we need you!

Help us deliver bags and boxes with brand new art supplies! It’s quick to sign up. You’ll have a custom link to share with your friends. Set your funding goals, reach out to friends, fundraise together, and monitor your progress!

What is a healing art box?

For only $20 per box, we put together a shoe box filled with 10 different brand new art supplies. We also include a series of exercises to stimulate and entertain children experiencing hardship.

Who receives these art boxes?

“Healing Art Boxes” are distributed to children through our non-profit Partner Agencies. Some examples of the locations that the boxes are distributed to are:

  • Children of the deployed
  • Children in long-term hospital care
  • Children exposed to domestic violence
  • Children whose families are experiencing financial hardship or homelessness.
  • Teens in crisis

So, how can you help?
