Each year, children in our community, nation and beyond experience life changing and traumatic events in the form of natural and man-made disasters sometimes fleeing with only the clothes on their backs.
Our organization responds to these disasters by providing children with our original coloring books about their specific situation as well as boxes of crayons. In times of natural disasters, children benefit from routine and possessions to help provide security and make them feel safe. These coloring books not only give children a voice but also something they can touch, feel, and call their own re-establishing hope and security.
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
