Thoughts and prayers are with the families, friends, and victims of today's horrific shooting. The Foundation for Coloring Away Pain will be sending grief coloring books and stuffed elephants to the children affected by these senseless acts. If you care to sponsor an elephant, please visit our online store to purchase a sponsorship.
As we watch the devastation in North East and beyond unfold, our thoughts and prayers go out to our friends and fellow Americans who are dealing with the devastating effects of Hurricane Sandy.
The Foundation for Coloring Away Pain is committed to helping the littlest victims cope with Hurricane Sandy's aftermath.
Donations are being collected for printing and shipping, as well as donations of crayons.
Thank you in advance for your help!
The Foundation for Coloring Away Pain
We are glad your here! The Foundation for Coloring Away Pain is a 501 ( C ) 3 organization that donates our original coloring books, along with a new box of crayons to children who have been affected by devastating natural and man-made disasters.
Children's limited life experiences and immature language skills often leave them confused, scared and silent during times of difficulty and tragedy. Realizing a child's first written language is coloring and drawing, The Foundation for Coloring Away Pain was founded to help children open up.
The Foundation for Coloring Away Pain is run by VOLUNTEERS.
Our monthly expenses are minimal, totaling less than $40.00 per month for the hosting of our web site and maintaining our toll-free number. This allows for 99.9% of the monies received to go to the printing and shipping of coloring books and crayons to the children in need!
Whether it is a community devastated by a hurricane or a child who has lost their parent to senseless violence, it is our hope to help children cope and encourage them to tell their story through drawing and coloring.
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
