Review for Coachart Org, Santa Monica, CA, USA
I was introduced to CoachArt last year after accepting an invitation to their fundraiser event. I’ve always had a soft spot for children and any organization that assists in the creative and intellectual development of children gets an A+ in my book. Children ARE our future and how we nourish them today is a reflection of how successful and bright our tomorrow will be. I salute CoachArt because they believe this and realize that ALL children are included in this statement. With the help of their amazing volunteers, CoachArt offers free lessons in art and athletics to children with critical illness AND their siblings. I can’t imagine what the families must endure having to care and provide for a child with a critical illness but I know that with the help of CoachArt some of their stresses are alleviated. I had the honor videotaping and seeing CoachArt in action when the children were matched with a local baker. The children were given the task of making cookies and pies from scratch and boy did they succeed! The volunteers were great with the children and the children loved every minute of it; from mixing the ingredients, to placing the dough in the oven to decorating the final products. After witnessing all of the smiles and laughter around the room, you couldn’t help but to erase any since of unhappiness or stress. At that point I think we all had the care-free spirit of a 5 year old! There are many occasions where we can read an organizations mission statement but seeing it in action is another story! CoachArt is an amazing organization and I wholeheartedly believe in their vision because I’ve seen it in action.
