Creative G I R L uses a “gift economy philosophy” meaning as much as possible, the work I do is offered as a gift to support girls and their creativity and true essence. There is a suggested gift amount for my playshops, which pays for supplies, facility rental and may offer a modest wage to support me and my family. Families who cannot afford the suggested amount can apply for scholarships or pay-what-you-can for participation. I am not financially wealthy, but I will not let money prevent me from doing work I believe in for our community: nurturing girls’ creativity, their voices and compassion.
There are countless creative ways to help Creative GIRL: sponsoring girls’ attendance, purchasing and/or donating supplies, and giving of your time and energy to spread the word about Creative GIRL to engage and activate as many girls as possible.
♥ We appreciate financial donations to underwrite the cost of some girls’ attendance fees, to ensure this program is accessible to any girl interested, regardless of her financial situation.
♥ We are grateful for donations of creativity products for our playshops.
♥ We thank YOU for your help spreading the word out Creative GIRL, promoting the playshops through your own referrals and social media. While I am aware of the benefits of marketing, I am choosing to invest all money I receive to the girls’ experiences, NOT in promotion. Please tell your friends and family who have daughters by sharing the CG facebook page .
♥ For the FALL 2016 playshops we need watercolor paper,
paint brushes, watercolor paints, unlined journals, batik fabrics, children’s board books (any size, to be upcycled), cutting mats, art-grade gel pens and other art supplies. Please contact me for a full list. These do NOT need to be new!
We are grateful to New Moon Girl magazine, a beautiful and empowering ad-free magazine for girls ages 8 and up. New Moon Girl has provided a copy of their magazine to every girl that comes through our summer program. They also offer a discount code LUNAGIFT to receive 10% off the base member price. Thank you NMG!
♥ I appreciate anything you can give to Creative GIRL: your time, your enthusiasm, your sharing, your donations, your gifts … let them shine! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. ♥
