#sharingiscaring is one of my mottos as an artist and yesterday I had the AMAZING opportunity to donate my work (wall decals) to the CENTRE DE RÉADAPTATION MARIE-ENFANT to make the children smile!!!
Thanks to Earl Pinchuk from "The Art For Healing Foundation / La Fondation de l'art pour la guérison" for making this possible!!! They are a non profit organization whose mission is to bring the healing power of art to hospitals and wellness facilities, transforming public and patient areas into inspiring environments that encourage a sense of serenity and HOPE for patients, their families and healthcare providers.
THANK you so much to Siam Obregon for taking an awesome video of this great experience! :)
