|The always awesome Art Feeds crew with Van Gogh|
As you may have noticed, this blog is forever evolving. Essentially what I’m trying to do here is provide information about different ways we can make the world a better place, and one way of doing this is to celebrate the many incredible people in Joplin who use their talents to help others.
That’s why I’ve joined forces with Art Feeds. In case you don’t know about Meg, Marissa, and Brooke, these three young women work to provide an outlet for helping kids express themselves through art: music, writing, painting, drawing, performing – you name it. They work with special needs kids, kids in after-school programs, and, most recently, kids affected by the tornado (which, of course, is just about every kid in Joplin, so this year their work load has increased tremendously). Actually, rather than having me explain Art Feeds to you, why don’t you check out their brand-new website here. And by “check it out” I mean really explore the new site – find out who they are, what their mission is, how you can get involved, and – if you are so moved – how you can donate to their programs.
