Help us continue to provide art therapy to children fighting cancer during the pandemic.
Every day, we strive to make a difference in the lives of youth battling cancer. A Free Bird's mission is to empower each child to fly free with the arts. Many of our programs can no longer take place as they were in person, but one program we are able to continue virtually is our private tutor lessons. In order to do this, we need your support. The more money we raise, the more art therapy sessions we can provide to children.
We kindly ask that you join us in supporting our dedicated tutors. All funds raised will allow us to continue providing children with one-on-one online art therapy tutoring. All donations will be put directly towards the continuation of our programs.
A Free Bird is an entirely volunteer-based organization.
How are we coping during the COVID 19 Pandemic?
Many of our programs used to take place in-person at hospitals, homes, or art events. Since this is not possible during the pandemic, we have created an online video platform so we can still offer art therapy to children battling cancer - because while the world may be on a standstill, cancer does not stop.
Our core program, Take Flight, offers pediatric patients art education through one-on-one access to creative mentors. Effective immediately, all Take Flight classes will be moved online.
We still require funding to pay our tutors and continue to develop our programs and give back to children battling cancer. Our goal is to help empower youth to fly free from cancer and we will not stop working toward this.
