  • How Your Support Helps


     

    Rosena, age ten, painting the Health Mural, Harper City, Liberia, August 2011.

    WHAT WE DO: Colors of Connection is dedicated to bringing the arts into communities where children and youth have very little exposure or opportunity to experience art. We work with them to develop basic art skills after which they collaboratively design and paint murals in public spaces in their communities. Your support allows one more child and community to experience the benefits and joy that come from creating art.

    MAKING AN IMPACT: The positive power of art is well documented. It brings hope, energy and inspiration to individuals and communities wherever it is found. It improves well-being, promotes development, generates a sense of belonging and creates a connection between all those who experience it.

    HELP US TO BRING COLOR INTO SOMEONE’S WORLD: Our work is funded primarily through public donations, and we really need your support to help us to continue making a life-changing difference in children’s lives. You can help by donating online, mailing in a check, or giving in-kind items listed to the right.
