Review for Art For the Nations, Denver, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've had the privilege of both volunteering with Art For the Nations and serving on the board since the early days in Lisa's home. The art projects that we prepare are so simple, like folding paper dolls and packing glitter and glue, yet I know they will become a wonderful treasure to needy children receiving them. I've always been impressed that the projects are designed to focus on the value, worth, and individual identity of each child, regardless of language or culture. The shop now has walk-in hours and is a very comfortable space, so volunteering is fun and easy!

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

numerous countries, through photos and videos of children in villages and orphanages. Also, I've worked at the center in Denver with many volunteers preparing the supplies for shipping.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

multiply the locations so volunteers in other cities could become a part of the experience.

Role:  Board Member & Painted the bags and filled them with art supplies, making them ready to be used by needy children.
