When our oldest daughter came up with Art with Heart 2 years ago, I had no idea how much it would effect the rest of our family! I spend lots of time working on the advertisements and paperwork that it takes to do the quarterly fundraisers at McAllister's Deli & Coldstone Creamery, Hannah hands out all the flyers and recruits the volunteers (which always includes her sister Megan and lots of both of their friends). Since Stephen has been either deployed, remote or TDY when we've had the fundraisers, he's missed out on a lot of them, but when he is home, he also delivers food at McAllister's with the rest of us and is constantly doing proof work for me.
I just spent about 3 hours this morning working on brochures, tote bags, etc. with the new logo (thank you Mark!). We're trying to get AWH to grow and looking for new ways to make it bigger and more effiencent! If anyone has any ideas, please share. We're always up for a new thought!
Hannah will be working on the website artwithheartonline.net over the next few days - loading pics of the last fundraiser and info on the next one. It's not a huge organization, but every time she throws a fundraiser night, I am always impressed at all the kids that show up to volunteer time after time. These college/high school kids take nights off their own jobs to come work for free to give art to little ones in the hospital. They make me so proud - that's one more reason we keep doing it!
