Art4Orphans is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping children in orphanages and group homes improve their situations by creating art and using their imaginations. We are working to raise money to provide orphanages and group homes in North Carolina with art supplies and creative opportunities for their children. Art helps children to express feelings and thoughts they may have trouble articulating with words. It provides them with a creative outlet to express themselves and their ideas in a creative and beneficial way.
Orphanages, group homes and child welfare agencies across the nation are struggling with a huge surge in children impacted by opioid use. While we cannot fix this drug epidemic as of now, we believe that our organization is making a difference in the lives of the children, the most most vulnerable victims affected by it.
Our goal for this year is to provide between eighty and ninety children, within a North Carolina group home or orphanage, with personalized art boxes. We have designed 3 versions of art boxes for toddlers, kids, and teenagers. The average cost of one of these art boxes is $33.00. Each box will be hand-packed with art supplies, stickers, and a personalized note to ensure that each child feels special!
We hope to grow and expand our efforts beyond just the state of North Carolina as soon as possible.
