The Art of Elyisum is a charity that is so important to me. And I am so fortunate for the opportunity to join fellow Crowdrisers and runners in raising money to help causes we love and support.
My goal is to raise $2,500 but I can't raise all of this money alone. I need your help! If you can spare some change, awesome. If all you can do is send this link around, that is awesome too.
Want to know what your donations go towards? Have a look at what Donation Amounts buy for these children:
$25 - Provides an Art of Elysium Art Kit for one child to paint, color and be creative while receiving treatment at the hospital.
$50 - Provides one music workshop for a group of hospitalized children, including instruction & performance.
$100 - Provides corrective make-up and instruction for four children who have facial disfigurements.
$250 - Provides a digital camera for a child to use and keep during one of our very popular photography programs.
$5,000 - Provides a years worth of weekly visual arts workshops at one of our partnering hospitals.
$7,500 - Provides a years worth of weekly music workshops and performances at a school or residential facility for medically disabled youth.
$10,000 - Covers costs for an eight-week, arts-based self-esteem program for teens suffering from severe medical disfigurements.
$15,000 - Underwrites our annual art exhibition, Little Pieces of Heaven, showcasing the art of over 50 critically ill children.
$25,000 - Provides for a part-time hospital or arts coordinator for one year.
$50,000 - Covers costs of school tuition, living expenses and /or an internship for a medically disabled young adult pursuing higher education in the arts through our Ambassadorship Program.
Again, please help me reach my goal of $2,500! It would mean the world to me, the artists, and most importantly the children.
And if you're in the Bay Area on the 31st, come support me in the marathon!! :)
