I recently shipped out about 4000 of my art greeting cards to Big Brothers Big Sisters for fundraisers in Collingwood, Ontario and here in St. John’s, Newfoundland. I have been a big fan of this organization since 2006 when we lived and artisted in the Collingwood area. I had been on many boards and in all kinds of groups and I finally had to decide where I really wanted to spend my time and somehow I hooked onto Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS).
I already knew the importance of having sisters…I have 2 younger sisters and I am definitely who I am today largely due to their influence. So I called up head office and soon after got matched with Rachel, my now-21-year-old little sister who was around 11 at the time. We are still friends and we hook up when we are back visiting and follow each others adventures on Facebook. We both benefited from this match up.
And in 2007 I won funding through the Robert Kemp Arts Award to run my Art Sister Program that I developed through BBBS. See below…
I love using my artwork and my network to help organizations make money for and bring awareness to their cause. Like BBBS, you need all kinds of resources to run a good system with quality and care, so wherever I can help, I help.
How can I help, you ask? Great question…
