I have been privileged to have the Art of Elysium directly affect my family. I have attended many of their benefits in which volunteers are joyfully making art, face painting, singing, and drumming with children who have more challenges in their young lives then I can imagine. The pure joy which is generated by all participants is inspiring. This is my favorite local charity to which we donate. Their work is transformative.

There are a myriad of Charities from which to choose to donate to, and none are more accessible than The Art of Elysium. Jen Howell's founding story is beyond touching. She moves thousands with her eternal grace and compassion, and you can't help wishing you could do more. The work is magical, and having a niece who was born needing a brain surgery, and sitting in Detroit's children's hospital surrounded by so many little ones whose parents couldn't afford to take off time to spend round the clock to be near their children...was heart wrenching. I truly wish that each and every hospital, and rehab center had The Art of Elysium programs, most hospitals are so dreary, and the kids are already suffering and so scared...they could all be helped so much. It is really amazing how each child lights up when the volunteers show up, and how for those moments they get transported for a quick escape, and they feel so good.
I hope that everyone sees the worthiness of this program, Jen Howell and all of her fabulous volunteers. It is a GREAT Nonprofit.

My Wife and I both contribute financially to this organization since we do not live in the Los Angeles or New York area, but being a craftsman myself, when I heard about what this organization does in bring creativity and arts into hospitals for children that would otherwise not be able to express this, that was all I had to hear. I am very proud to be a part of this organization and will continue to give as much as I am able to.

I found about The Art of Elysium through my son that works for the organization and am very proud to be able to contribute to this amazing cause. I have seen what an art kit is and what it can do for a child that is hopitalized. That is just a small viewing in the immense world that is The Art of Elysium, and i look forward to continuing my support for many years to come

I commend volunteers and staff of AOE. They are truly angels who bring laughter, smiles and creativity to children who are ill. It is their hard work that continues to bring hope into the lives of kids they service. We all need to see people like those who are involved in this charity. We all have to support the AOE.

I have seen Little Pieces of Heaven and really could not believe all the hard work that went in to that function. The smiles it brought to the faces of some of the kids involved will always be a wonderful memory.

Bring more staff and volunteers in to more hospitals. The programs I have witnessed are truly special and so important to all of the children and their parents.

Love the whole concept of this program. I've donated to their program on Crowdrise recently because I really liked what they were doing to raise funds for summer art kits. Having returned to school for art, I've come to realize that I was able to articulate complex emotions through pictures and crafts as a child when words failed me. My hope is that these various artistic mediums will help kids use them as a vehicle of self-expression and let the volunteers be their muses.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the form of being inspired to volunteer my artistic background with a local arts program started by my friend's seven year old daughter who lives with a physical disability. They want to use the crafts to sell them in order to raise money for St. Jude's Hospital. I had a lot of fun and so did the kids. I might consider volunteering for Art of the Elysium too, if they're local.

The AOE is a phenomenal organization. Through its' professional staff, volunteers and programs it gives children a chance to forget and put aside, for just a moment, the terrible disease that has invaded their lives; and enjoy life and be a kid again. It gives back some happiness and pride, which has been unfairly stripped from their young life.

The professional staff bring a smile back to people who direly need something to smile about. And, that's the most important mission a person (organization) can have. Bravo for what the AOE does!! May it continue for many years

If you can, imagine every parent's worst fear and having a child with a serious illness or disability. Then imagine seeing that child smile, even it only for a moment. That is to me the essence fo the Art of Elysium. They bring together artist and everyday people willing to give of their time to bring happiness and a sense of accomplishment to children who face great difficulty in life to say the least.

You would also be amazed at the joy and comfort these activities provide for the parents and siblings of these children.
