I was recently contacted by students completing a capstone project at Cal State Fullerton. They are promoting an auction for All the Arts for All the Kids. I just wanted to give a heads up to anyone in the Fullerton area who would be interested in attending this auction on Saturday. I wish I could go, but we have family coming to visit and plans that can’t be changed. I’m a firm believer that arts should be a part of every student’s education. When I was teaching, I had some students who were incredibly talented, but their families did not have the resources or knowledge to encourage that talent. So if you’re in the area, stop by and check it out! You could win one of the beautiful hearts like the one in the picture to the right. If you’re not in the area, I’m sure they wouldn’t mind getting a small donation through their website. For onlly 25$’s, you would be providing an entire year of art education for one student. Pretty cool.
Here’s their mission statement:
The All the Arts for All the Kids Foundation is an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to developing, sustaining, and supporting the arts as an intrinsic part of every child’s education.
It is this organization’s passionate belief that the arts are the birthright of every child, and as such, the Foundation champions the arts in the Fullerton School District. We enthusiastically raise funds which are used exclusively to supplement the District’s ongoing arts programs.
This grass roots community effort is staffed solely by volunteers, so that all proceeds go directly to the children in every school in the District.
