Promise Made

When launching Inspire! Art, I made a public promise to charitable giving.

” We believe in giving of our time, talent and treasure.  In addition to free e-color books, every purchase of Inspire! Art products helps to provide free product and/or financial support to programs serving elderly adults as well as children with special needs”.

Last week I spent some time with Sharon Lazerson of Kimball Farms Lifecare in Lenox MA.  Sharon invited me to join one of her “Memories In The Making” sessions, a program of the Alzheimer’s Association internationally used as a tool to help people with Alzheimer’s disease and other similar forms of dementia.  It is designed to give those with impacted cognitive abilities a creative and emotional outlet that could improve self-esteem and focus; reduce isolation and reconnect loved ones by providing a new avenue for communication to tap into new discoveries and past memories.

So often we think that in order to make a difference, we need to do something “big”.  Not so.

I brought a basket full of Inspire! Art Watercolor Paint Brush Sets, a smiling face, and a listening ear.

Simply by showing kindness and by taking the time ‘to see and hear’ the lives of my fellow art students (instead of ‘see over and dismiss’), I definitely got more than I gave that day!

I’ve got many more sets to donate.  Hope to have another share soon.
