Since 1988, we - Leonard and Natasha Singer, licensed clinical social workers, in conjuction with a community of volunteers, has helped lead an annual food and clothing drive at Christmas time to an American Indian reservation in South Dakota. We have known Wendy Black Nasta for over 22 years and have witnessed her dream and vision come to fruition in Artists for World Peace. Led by Wendy, Artists for World Peace has been a major and important contributor to our annual food and clothing drive. Through Artists for World Peace, Wendy has organized an impressive group of volunteers including children and teachers from local schools and universities, boy and girl scout troups, local businesses, neighbors and families to come together to donate gifts, food, blankets, clothing and other much needed items, as well as the effort to sort, organize and help us pack these items in our truck that we drive out each year to South Dakota. Not only have they generously provided a major portion of donations to our annual drive to the reservation, but Artists for World Peace makes donations to local food banks at the same time. Wendy involves many different types of artists and artistic ventures to create ways to raise funds and inspire others to work for peace. Artists for World Peace is doing wonderful and much needed projects around the world, to help provide children with shoes, educational scholarships, and have "adopted" children from different parts of the world to help with living expenses. The way that local people are involved as volunteers, working with each other to bring all these ideas to action is so inspiring to see. Not only is Artists for World Peace becoming an important contributor to world peace through active projects, but is also a place where many are learning about generosity and selfless giving.
