Review for Arts Education International, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I met Sarah Geller the founder of AEI at an event where she was nominated for an award. I have never felt so strongly about a single organization in my life. As an actor AEI's method of providing emotional rehabilitation makes so much sense, and as a kid I understand the positive effects of fun. I was so inspired by AEI that offered to help fundraise during the summer of 2011.

I am 17 and live in NYC and although Sarah lives across the country she helped me every step of the way. I decided I would sell something and try to collect donations at popular flea markets on the weekend. Sarah helped me score a free table, and I spent days making back packs completely out of duct tape.

I had a great time and everyone I met received AEI beautifully.

Art of all sorts has been a device I've used for emotional understanding throughout my life, and I feel very confident that it can be a strong aid to the children in the Sierra Leone and Ghana.

I would change nothing but increase funding to expand in other nations.
