art with heart

Believing that “creativity is often overlooked as a positive behavioral intervention tool that promotes healing and trauma resolution,” the non-profit “encourages resiliency using the concepts of art therapy to lead toward greater self-confidence and emotional clarity.”

Since 1996, this charitable organization has helped more than 41,000 children heal through creativity. The children’s stories are compelling, the art heartwarming, the books and programs powerful.

Oh, and you can help – there are oodles of ways!

Do you know a child who could benefit from the Art with Heart resources?  How about a Grab Bag?  Maybe a very special gift? Their cards are quite nice too. And if you are logo-happy, Art with Heart has a Cafe Press store!

Art with Heart…great theme for this Valentine’s Day weekend…have a good one!
