I hope.

H O P E 

Let's lighten things up a bit this month. Let's gather a collection of things that give us hope. Give us hope about today, tomorrow, life, humanity, everything.

Share the stories, images, links, quotes, and so much more that just make you feel hope for a brighter tomorrow.

I can't wait to have a blog full of hope that we can all come back to when we need a bit of a positive boost.

I'll start it off with this

Inspiration Through Art

Inspiration Through Art is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering people to give back, and make a difference through the beauty of art. We are artists with a passion for giving and inspiring others. Through our own artistic talents we are able to come together as one, to let children around the world know that they are loved,despite the challenges they face everyday. 
Through the power of photography and the gift of art we are giving back and taking a stand for these children who sometimes feel forgotten because of their illnesses.

I am so excited about what founder, Felicia Reinhard, and the volunteer artists are doing for children and families around the world. What an inspiring way to help families find hope during times of strife and struggle. Inspiration Through Art shows us just one of the ways art heals. This organization gives me so much hope. It inspires me to use my art to help as many people as I can. What gives me the biggest feeling of hope and astonishment is that the founder, Felicia Reinhard is only 22 years old! What an amazing young woman. She uses art to help her through her own medical issues and spreads her art on to other folks so they can use its power to heal as well. An amazing story, an amazing woman, an amazing cause, an amazing organization.

I am hopeful that the mission of Inspiration Through Art will inspire artists to join, volunteer, and spread the healing power of art to those children and families that sometimes need it the most.

Art Break Day is for everyone.

The 4th annual Art Break Day will be celebrated around the world on Friday, September 5th! We hope you can join us for an art break.

So far, we have 15 registered sites in 4 different countries. This is so fantastic!

Anyone, and we mean A N Y O N E can host an Art Break Day.

The requirements are minimal to make it easy to join this amazing event.

All that we ask is that you offer some sort of art making for free in a space that is open to the public. Think about it. That could be the neighborhood park, your backyard, the bus, a random street corner, anywhere!

Let's make it happen.

Let's have art breaks happening in every neighborhood across the globe.

Since this is a volunteer lead event, we understand that supplies may be limited at times. If you only have enough supplies for 5 people, that's okay. It's a place to start.

Do what you can.

Every art break you offer makes a difference.

Every art break matters. They all create a positive impact in our lives and our communities.

That's what we're here to do.

We're connecting the world, one artwork at a time. And, we need your help to do that.

So, join the cause! Get involved with this global art movement.

You know what art has done for you, that is makes your life better. Help others discover that amazingness by offering them the opportunity to take a break with you and create art.

Register your Art Break Day Location here.
