We are all called in life to help our fellow human. While it seems illogical to give away what little we gain as the stereotypical “starving artists”, it is in fact an incredible blessing to us to do so. There is nothing quite like doing what you love and then offering support to someone else in need as a result. We are richer for doing so.
Currently we support the following organizations:
The Barbara Carmen Creative Experience Fund
The experience fund is offered to those being treated for cancer. I believe that ART heals- I would love to offer you a creative opportunity to create, to heal, to forget your worries for a bit. A workshop is offered to you at a reduced cost.
This fund is in honor of Barbara Carmen- a woman who faced life with courage despite the many challenges she encountered.
Irondequoit Community Cupboard, Inc.
The Irondequoit Community Cupboard, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization designed to meet a variety of needs for families and individuals in the Town of Irondequoit, NY.
“To provide emergency assistance to Irondequoit residents with dignity, kindness and without prejudice.”
“To raise awareness of the presence and impact of hunger and poverty in our community. We envision a community where all people share resources to ensure that residents’ basic needs are met in times of limited resources.
We advocate for and reach out to those in need and try to influence public policy so that every person in our community has the necessary support and resources to enhance nutrition, health and welfare.”
Camp DayDreams has many advocates- One of the most passionate- Sara Catalano had this to share,
In an effort to pay it forward and recognize our fellow humans in need, we create blessing bags to distribute to those we might come across as we travel through our daily lives. Blessing bags have been graciously received by many as the result of the efforts of those who have participated at Create Art 4 Good. We each bring supplies, assemble them complete with “love notes” and then carry these bags in our cars to give comfort and aid to those we see in need.
Contributions towards this effort are gratefully appreciated.
We are serious about paying it forward- if you have a devoted charity you would like us to consider supporting, please contact Susan @ firstname.lastname@example.org
