Art - and the arts can have such powerful benefits to all children. Many children go through school with limited access to art lessons, classes, and enrichment. Edu Designs provides these opportunities and I am so grateful that they do so.

The arts are important to my child's schooling because he has special needs and art helps him and gives him an outlet to express himself.

Ruth has done a great job in helping/inspiring kids - to become better people in society.
This has been through various arts and other cute videos or cartoons for many years.
She deserves a huge commendation for doing, what is many times, a thankless and hard task.

EduDesigns has provided free art lessons to schools across the US. And they constantly provide character building tools and stories. What a great non-profit, so lucky they do what they do.

I recently saw a cartoon called “Somebody Needs You” from the talented folks over at Edu Designs, with the characters voiced by the legendary June Foray. It’s an inspiring short film about lending a hand to help out someone in need. I feel this is an important message that often gets lost, more so than ever these days. People forget about doing or looking for good deeds, as all of us tend to our own affairs and situations as we grow up. So it just feels good to be reminded about the kindness of strangers. That one good deed can make all the difference in a person’s day. And how anyone can make a difference. I love the cartoon for those heartwarming lessons. It represents what Edu Designs stands for in its noble goal of teaching children about the wonders of life through the art and power of animation.

The arts have never been not important. It is that plane where our spiritual, physical and mental selves converge.

EDU Designs has taken great leaps in creating "Somebody Needs Me". Capturing the innocence and true nature of a child helping others.

I appreciate this! You must be a true artist to have such great understanding of what happens INSIDE of us when the Arts are involved! THANK YOU!
