EVENT #1: THE "I GET YOU" PROJECT

Ashton Park | November 14th, 2020

On Saturday, we introduced our "I Get You" Project to the world. This project aims to capture the perspectives and experiences that children all over the world had with COVID-19, as a form of stress relief from the madness going on in the world. We will eventually compile all the entries that we receive from our "I Get You" events into a book so that other children know that they too, can relieve themselves from the madness within by putting their energy into art work, writing, and crafts that allow them to do so. For this event, we reached out to children from our local community who utilized forms of artistic expression to summarize their feelings during the pandemic.

EVENT #3: HEARTS LANDING AND KEATON'S CANCER 

Hearts Landing Ranch | April 10th, 2021

Made for More got the incredible opportunity to partner with Hearts Landing Ranch and Keaton's Child Cancer Alliance where we brought the "I Get You" Project back for another in-person event. These little warriors got away from their daily battles to ride horses, paint, draw, and journal - all stress relieving activities. Watching the smiles on these kids' faces come to life when they picked up their sparkly markers and paint filled brushes was one of the most rewarding experiences we have had. We are more than thankful to Hearts Landing and Keaton's for allowing us to meet some amazing souls.

EVENT #4: KEATON'S CANCER AT GILL ORCHARDS

Gill Orchards | April 24th, 2021

Our second event with Keaton's Child Cancer Alliance was such a thrill. The kids got to gift the Disney princesses and Marvel characters with some of their beautiful artwork inspired by starry night skies, princess castles, and the beautiful trees and flowers at the orchard. Watching the children come out of their shells the more they participate in our art activities is such a blessing.

EVENT #6: HEARTS LANDING MOVIE NIGHT

Hearts Landing Ranch | July 10th, 2021

It was such a blessing to go out to Hearts Landing Ranch's summer movie night and have a little fun with art activities under the stars. It was truly magical to watch the kids create their own little clay birds inspired by the movie Rio, which they decorated with vibrant colored feathers, googly eyes, and tropical paint colors. Along with these projects, they were able to make earrings thanks to Kay's Golden State Jewelry, and paint sceneries for their new animal friends.
