A very close friend of mine is on the Board of Directors for this wonderful organization called The Colored Pencil Project. It’s a Boston-based non-profit that distributes art supplies to children in underdeveloped countries. Pretty stellar work, huh? Well, the Colored Pencil Project is hosting a fundraiser in the form of a yoga event here in Beantown. Below are the details in case you are interested in participating. It’s going to be a WONDERFUL event, for sure. If you have any questions, please let me know. I’ll give you Beth’s direct contact info.
Thanks so much!
Do you live in a world of color? Do you believe every child deserves the opportunity to communicate their experiences, their hopes and fears, and most importantly their dreams? The Colored Pencil Project is a Boston-based non-profit organization that distributes art supplies to children in developing countries, facilitating art workshops that encourage children to visually depict themselves and their world. Art is essential to childhood development; children worldwide need ways to express themselves and to explore their place in the world.
The Colored Pencil Project is hosting a yoga event at South Boston Yoga on April 7th from 1 – 2:15 pm with Kathy Heartsell. The suggested donation for the yoga class is $10. All proceeds will go directly to The Colored Pencil Project and help fund our mission of providing children from around the world with not only the necessary supplies but also the confidence to continue to express themselves in color.
We are looking for creative ways to spread the word about our organization and the upcoming yoga benefit to people within the Boston area. We would love your help in getting the word out to your readership through your blog. The Colored Pencil Project is a global initiative and we believe help from people like you will lead to our ultimate success. Our hope is that sharing the children’s artwork will ultimately foster global understanding and goodwill.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions or if you would like more information. Thank you for your time and we look forward to seeing you at South Boston Yoga on the 7th!
