As volunteers with the south Simcoe Arts Council, we have again invited students in South Simcoe schools to create black-line drawings for ‘Colour Your Cares Away,’ Volume II, a forty page community colouring book, to be donated to local hospital emergency departments, to occupy and strengthen the comfort levels and of younger patients, their siblings and families while waiting for care.
During 2011, almost 10,000 copies of ‘Colour Your Cares Away’ were delivered to hospitals in Alliston, Barrie, Newmarket and Orangeville. According to hospital staffs, children are truly delighted to receive unexpectedly, a copy of ‘Colour Your Cares Away’.
In light of our success, and to meet an on-going need, we have received over 500 drawings from students in 15 south Simcoe schools, in response to our request for volume two. We have juried 37 drawings for selection, and are ready to publish ‘Colour Your Cares Away’, Volume II. With approximately 50% of the $10 000 required for the project, in place, we would be most appreciative, if you could consider a donation.
We wish to express our gratitude for your consideration of our request to support ‘Colour Your Cares Away,’ Volume II, and enclose a Pledge Form for your perusal.
Our vision is “Arts for All”. We hope that by coordinating involvement in the project, our combined efforts will strengthen service and support, for ‘youth helping youth’ in our community.
