People raise money for all sorts of things now a days, and thats beyond awesome. I try to support as many as possible whenever possible. I however choose to raise money for the arts. Art programs of all types are constantly losing funding all over the country. Kids everywhere are losing out on the opportunity to participate in art programs that will help them perform better in all aspects of their lives.
Kids who participate in art programs of any type are:
– 4 times as likely to be recognized for academic achievement
– 3 times as likely to be recognized for school attendance.
– Read for pleasure nearly twice as often
– Perform community service more than four times as often
– helps all students develop more appreciation and understanding of the world around them
– helps students develop a positive work ethic and pride in a job well done
– can help troubled youth, providing an alternative to destructive behavior and another way for students to approach learning
Just to name a few positive aspects of participating in any kind of art program. When budgets get balanced and shortfalls come in, The arts are usually the first to go. That’s why its important for other organizations to step in but the money isn’t always there and they too depend on help. Which is where i come in!
