Overview of Idea

:

Old Town Artisan Studio is a non-profit healing arts program. We would love to bring back CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) for abused foster care children. These children get shuffled around from one home to another & rarely have a sense of direction. OTAS will work hand in hand w/ CASA...

The Specifics: What will the $5,000 fund?

We will do what we know best! Healing and nurturing through art~

The foster kids that come to OTAS have the option of putting either their hands or footprints into clay memories, as well as other clay products. (please see video)

Their "footprints" are a unique way to remind them of how to walk in life...They have a choice to "step" into a brighter future if they so choose.

Every time they see one of their unique gifts that they make though the OTAS program, they will be reminded that there are GOOD people out there who wish for them to succeed through these times of despair...

We thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity....

The message of hope in this project is worth reminders. The Post was somehow repeated many times (;
It may be that I am cyber challenged. Thank you for giving us this opportunity to share the vision of bringing children to a creative and caring, safe environment to build a reminder that they are never alone and always loved.

When we can make something to remind children they are loved that is lasting it means so much forever,
Many children need someone to walk beside them as they take life's journey and that parent or loved one is missing. Showing with these prints in clay that they have some who loves them and is walking beside them is gives them a reminder of the love and hope that they have. And that they are never ever alone.

Thank you for your help with this project. There are endless numbers of families we could bring this message and artistic reminder to with your help.
