The illustrations were created by special patients from Wolfson Children's Hospital and Nemours Children's Clinic through Art with a Heart for Children.
100 Days of Summer - Contribute and Win!
Please join the Art with a Heart in Healthcare team for a summer awareness drive to help raise funds for increased one-to-one artist time with our patients. For every patient and family member we serve in a group art session, there are many more patients who are unable to leave their room and require personalized bedside sessions. Sadly, it is difficult to meet that need, particularly for evenings and weekends when the need can be at it's greatest. Pictured below are the major prizes being awarded for participation.
Hand painted framed heart collage, framed patient photograph, Jacksonville from A-Z book featuring the artwork of our patients and a handcrafted recycled necklace created by our resident artist Tracie Thornton from donated beads.
How can I contribute?
Donate - With a donation, you will directly sponsor a bedside session and allow us to devote more artists who are focused on these specialized needs.
Spread the Word - On our Facebook page, merely Like, Comment or Share on any post relating to the 100 days of Summer campagn and help spread the word to new potential “Contributors”. All new friends received during the awareness campaign will automatically be entered into the raffle.
All contributors carrying out ANY of the above parameters will be entered into our raffle. Randomly selected contributors will be awarded one original art piece with raffle drawings being held every 25 days. Smaller patient painted canvas and easel pieces will be awarded out on a weekly basis until the conclusion of the awareness campaign.
