Meet the Pack Painters!
This group of kids have been working all school year to raise money
for Emilie Gossiaux, an artist who lost her sight in an accident. When
they heard her story, a group of 5th graders approached me about raising
money to help pay Emilie’s medical bills. We have met every Tuesday to
talk art and plan events. During these events, students auction off
their artwork (made on their own time) and the venue collects
donations. So far, we have raised about $1,000! This is a huge amount
for a group of inspired young students. How cool that they created and
run this group, all for the sake off someone else?
