We are a family and friends initiative with the goal of bringing some normalcy, creativity, and relief to the children of Ukraine. As educators, artists, therapists, and mothers, we endeavour to support little ones and their families living in unimaginable terror.
Our goal is to collect art supplies that will be distributed to families affected by the war. All items will be shipped directly to our volunteers in Lviv, Kharkiv, and Khust, who are ready to receive and deliver them to children in those areas. We hope to expand to other cities, if possible.
We chose art to offer a glimpse of play for the children living in a war zone and a sense of momentary relief for their parents. Art has the potential to support, heal, help process, enhance play, and inspire dreams! We want to bring a little of that childhood magic back.
Art supplies have become rare and expensive in affected areas, completely out of reach for most families. You can help by donating art supplies at our host locations across the GTA and Montreal or by purchasing directly through our Amazon wish list.
Donations are gratefully accepted of: markers (scented & regular), pencil crayons, gel pens, pastels, crayons, chalk, pipe cleaners, modeling beeswax, Model Magic, colouring books, sketch books, construction paper, rainbow scratch paper, and stickers.
If you'd like to help financially, your monetary donations will help cover the cost of shipping and supplies. We are so grateful for your support as we work to maximize how much we are able to send to children and families on the ground.
