ARTISTS FOR WORLD PEACE INC
February 21, 2010

Seeing and hearing about the lives that are directly affected by Artists for World Peace has changed my life. The 2009 Hats for a Cause Event sticks in my mind the most because of the progression. Artists' hands meet scraps of fabric, beautiful remnants, and even someone's favorite stuffed animal. At this point, peoples' lives were already changed, as they came together to learn, teach, and create. At the fundraising event, energy levels were high, and some wonderful connections were made as families came through to browse through our hats and make their donations to AFWP. This particular event raised money for local food banks. It was amazing to see how much food we loaded into trucks and vans to distribute to different food banks in CT.
