Creativity is not a luxury.
It's an essential tool that boosts self-esteem, transforms unimaginable situations, and helps solve our planet's biggest problems.
As budgets for the arts continue to get cut, please consider adding an inspiring non-profit to your holiday gift list. Here are a few suggestions to get you thinking:
FreeArtsNYC sponsors art programs for kids and their families--giving them the freedom to color outside of the lines.
Education Through Music funds classes throughout the five boroughs. Its mission is to keep the music playing and help kids find the beat of their own drum.
We shouldn't have any favorites...but hey, who can blame us for this one? Girls Write Now pairs NYC girls with accomplished women writers. Each year, young scribes learn creative writing basics, while discovering the power of their own voice.
If you have any ideas to add to the list, we'd love to hear them!
Thanks for an exciting year of collaborative brainstorming. We look forward to helping you realize unprecedented success in 2012!
