HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Crayon Collection's Color Kindness Program is meant for kids to spread kindness around the world. Originally hand-written notes of positivity were exchanged between children. The program has since pivoted to include frontline workers as this gentle expression of care goes a long way and is a source of joy for both recipient and writer.

DESCRIPTION

The Crayon Collection mission is to inspire a commitment to environmental consciousness and the infusion of art education in underfunded schools.

Our Color Kindness Challenge was inspired by the hard work of our frontline heroes during this unprecedented time. The challenge is available for free download at crayoncollection.org. These notes of kindness express our gratitude to all those working on the frontlines.
