...60 people will enjoy the gift of expressive arts this winter season.
#artforhmea has raised quite the interest as our #GivingTuesday initiative this year. We are truly humbled by the number of donations that have come in over the past few days and by the response we have seen from our supporters via social media.
Art therapy is just one of many activities that HMEA offers the people we support. Just like you and me, people with disabilities have a variety of different interests, ranging from art, to gardening, to music, to yoga and so much more.
But, arts & crafts seem to be the most popular during the winter months; likely due to the numerous ideas for crafts brought out by the holiday season and the difficulty in getting outdoors.
Your combined donation of $1500 will give 60 people the gift of art.
With over 300 people in our art therapy program, we still have a ways go to give everyone gift of art this holiday season.
If you haven't given yet, there is still time. And, if you have already given, we thank you for your special gift.
*WMRC First Class Radio has partnered with HMEA as media sponsor for this initiative and has offered to match funds raised for #artforhmea with an in-kind advertising donation of up to $2,000 to be used for future events benefiting individuals supported by HMEA.
