Hello, Beauties! I was contacted by Art Feeds to do a collaboration post. This great organization provides free therapeutic art and creative education programs to thousands of children. Art Feeds sent me this adorable shirt to help spread the word of the amazing things they are doing.
This shirt is literally the softest t-shirt I have ever owned and I love what it says! ‘Create: it makes your soul grow’. This statement couldn’t be any truer and it’s a great way to start a conversation about the Art Feeds organization and spread the word to our communities.
This is an excerpt from the Art Feeds website on how it all started:
” Art Feeds began in one classroom with one child- a little boy who wasn’t being fed at home and who was not only lethargic & struggling with academics but also had incredibly low self-esteem. As Meg began doing art lessons with him, he showed tremendous progress through expression; art was feeding him in a way that was just as essential as food.
The art lessons quickly grew from just him to more classrooms and more children. So in order to fund the supplies she needed, Meg printed and sold shirts that featured “Art Feeds” and a blank written by that original little boy, paired with his handprint, which ended up with a heart in the middle and later became the Art Feeds logo. The blank was open for the buyer to fill in with whatever “Art Feeds” for them. The simple t-shirt project grew far beyond expectations and the story of this little boy spread as did the impact and reach of Art Feeds programs.
The story of this little boy is now the story of thousands of Art Feeds students who have together had the realization “What I’m creating has worth, therefore I have worth.” ”
