We are so grateful to everyone who purchased the Hope Necklace, which raised over $2500 to support. Free Arts Minnesota, a remarkable group that is located here in Minneapolis. "Free Arts Minnesota is a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing the healing powers of artistic expression into the lives of abused, neglected and at-risk children and their families. Free Arts Minnesota is dedicated to healing young lives through artistic expression. Free Arts recognizes that abuse encompasses a wide rangeof experiences such as trauma caused by violence,neglect, poverty, and homelessness."
"Free Arts knows that artistic expression is a successful way to externalize emotions and gain self confidence. Through dance, drama, writing, music, painting, sculpting, photography and other avenues of creativity, Free Arts volunteers work to increase children’s self-esteem and build character by unlocking the imagination. Children and families participating in Free Arts programs learn ways to channel emotion, release anger and express themselves safely. Building artistic skills gives children a positive sense of their own abilities."
What is Hope?
It is "the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will
turn out for the best." Many children face adversities at a very young age, at a time where most kids lead care-free lives laughing and playing. The children who take part in Free Arts Minnesota, come from various backgrounds where they may have been abused, neglected, and even homeless. Please help make a huge difference in the lives of local children by purchasing a Hope Necklace. You will be providing support to these children in need, during a critical time in their lives when your help will make a huge difference. The funds raised, will go towards providing necessary supplies for all the amazing arts programs Free Arts offers.
My hope is that contributions made through the purchase of this necklace will help provide these young children hope that they can achieve anything their hearts desire. For each pendant purchased, $50.00 will go to Free Arts Minnesota to improve the lives of over 2000 children. Please help me raise necessary funds for this wonderful
cause by purchasing online now!
Thank you for your overwhelming response, but the Hope Necklace is now sold out.
