Who: The Child Rescue Foundation, Inc. sponsors the HeArt Through a Child’s Eyes
Why: Raising awareness of the impact of violence on children with their art. Children donating artwork will gain the knowledge that their messages of hope will help another child in crisis. Eighty cents of every dollar from this auction will go to children in need, children who have been victims of domestic violence and/or abuse. We need volunteers for that day to face paint (no experience necessary) and people to help children create art.
Our supporters: Barnes and Noble Booksellers, Gay and Lesbian Fund for Colorado, Wells Fargo, and the Denver Department of Parks and recreation
Wanted: Face Painters
HeArt of Imagination Day
Hosted by the Child Rescue Foundation
We are looking for face painting volunteers. This is a wonderful opportunity to work, hands on, painting the faces of children ages 1 – 99. Face painters are expected to work quickly with each child, while being friendly and enthusiastic. Experience is not required! Children can pick from a pre-made book featuring simple designs such as ladybugs and stars. Of course, you are welcome to try your own designs as well. This day should be fun, rewarding and full of creativity, for both the children and yourself.
