We are members of Harvard-Westlake Middle School Red Cross Club in West Los Angeles. We are collaborating in an art project, while practicing social distancing, to raise money for American Red Cross. It’s a complicated project conducted entirely on Zoom as we cannot meet in person, but we are determined and committed to completing this project at the highest standard.
We will join on Zoom to help each other sketch and paint a beautiful tree filled with amazing butterflies as it is said “The butterfly is proof that you can go through a great deal of darkness and still become something beautiful.”
As you can see, this project is not just a paint-for-fun one, but actually a commitment of time to learn and a concerted effort to bring a creative idea to life.
We hope you will support us by sponsoring us and motivating us to finish our tasks at our best ability, with just a few dollars that you can afford to give. We also hope the painting (actual size 30in x 30in) will generate interest for purchase. All proceeds will go to the American Red Cross’s humanitarian relief efforts. Your support to our project is a support for humanity all around the world and we are forever grateful!

A Note from American Red Cross:
We respond to an emergency every 8 minutes.
No one else does this: not the government, not other charities. From small house fires to multi-state natural disasters, the American Red Cross goes wherever we’re needed, so people can have clean water, safe shelter and hot meals when they need them most.
We respond to an average of more than 60,000 disasters every year
95% of our disaster relief workers are volunteers
90% of disasters we respond to are home fires
