Dreaming Zebra totally equipped a dwindling and drowning art program! We serve kids with severe emotional disturbances, what a great way to reach a really difficult to teach population.

A staff member at our school worked to help provide much-needed supplies for our classrooms through your organization. It was like Christmas to have these wonderful supplies delivered so that our students could use the arts to explore their content area studies! Thank you all so much for what you do!

The dreaming zebra foundation came through when we had no place else to turn. Thank you for your support of this organization and what they do for the students of North Carolina and other States. They have been great.

I am a 2nd grade teacher in an extremely impoverished area. Due to economic budget restraints, our school was forced to get rid of our arts program. We were also faced with not having extra funds to provide for art supplies to use in our classrooms. I heard about The Dreaming Zebra Foundation and contacted them. They were very interested in helping our Elementary school that consists of over 700 children. The Dreaming Zebra sent me a huge box of art supplies. These supplies were distributed throughout the school. The Dreaming Zebra is also continuing to work with my school to help provide art materials and support for the upcoming school year. The Dreaming Zebra has helped provide art to children who otherwise may not have been given the chance.

i am an artist and was living in Chicago, I was looking to do some volunteering before i moved back to Michigan to go to graduate school. I had heard of DZF and even though they are not based in Chicago i called anyway thinking they could hook me up with a non-profit by me. Well they did better than that, they put me together with a young woman whose father was recently laid off and whose mom was working extra hours to pick up the slack. The parents knew how much their daughter loved art but they were no longer in a position to give her art lessons. DZF put us together and it was a wonderful experience for all concerned.

The Dreaming Zebra Foundation has helped my art classes in my elementary school beyond expectations! They are so willing to go the extra mile to find us supplies that we need, like colored markers and crayons. They have been so supportive of our desire to offer ceramics to our students. The Dreaming Zebra Foundation has enriched the lives of our 800 art students here in Phoenix! They are awesome!

I have both donated money and volunteered for DZF. I grew up in a family surrounded by artists and a mother who managed multi-million dollar arts organizations. From the moment I first worked with DZF and Dawne it was evident her program provided the most efficacious distribution of arts materials to children that I had ever seen. Many months later I am still in awe of what they accomplish - and it's no surprise: Dawne is a fount of energy. In an era where I am cynical about how much of every donation reaches the intended recipient, I have witnessed that >90% of donations to DZF get to the children. As I have said, I am in awe of what they do.

The Great!

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

(1) As a child, my art class received (albeit sparingly) donations like the ones DZF sends out; (2) I have seen the quality of the art supplies her organization sends out and they procure them for less than half of what I pay for much lesser quality supplies for my children; and (3) I have seen the stacks of thank you notes sent by kids in the programs that receive her donations - they speak volumes.

Donate more so they could have more staff.

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

Funny, I don't think in those terms. I don't see a lacking here.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

No.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Happy and wondering how I could do more.

Dawne and the Dreaming Zebra Foundation have been wonderful to work with in support of our instrumental music program at Weinland Park Elementary. Our goal is to offer instrumental music to any 4th or 5th grade student who wishes to participate. Unfortunately, most of our students do not have the means to purchase or rent an instrument. It is a challenge to provide instruments for our students. Many of the instruments in our inventory are old, in need of repair or both. Although I want students to participate in music, I will not have them participate with sub-par instruments that will cause more harm than good. So far this year Dreaming Zebra has provided a clarinet and a cello with a trumpet on the way. Thanks to their generosity and persistence, additional students at Weinland Park will have an opportunity to participate for years to come. Thank you Dreaming Zebra!
