On Thursday evening, during my ustream broadcast, I created a banner in support of a fundraising initiative speerheaded by Canadian Scrapbooker team member Allison Orthner: Hope for Haiti.
She, along with Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine and Live Different, are raising money to build an Art/Music Classroom on the rooftop of a school that overlooks Cap Haitien, Haiti.
Art education sparks creativity, improves motor skills, builds confidence, promotes decision making/critical thinking skills, focus, collaboration -- all this and increases self esteem and is a proven aid to mental health. Is there any wonder why I'm so passionate about it? Every child deserves access to to art and the ability to express themselves through it. I am thrilled to be able to support this effort.
Below is the recording of how I created these banners... I hope you watch and it inspires you in some way!
Want to contribute to this initiative? Every donation helps. Tax receipts to Canadians donating more than $20 will be issued. I hope you MAKE A BANNER TOO!
