A few months back, we were having lunch at Paradise Bakery and we noticed some children’s artwork hanging on the wall – upon closer inspection the artwork was an example from a charity that Paradise Bakery had a community partnership with – Free Arts of Arizona. For some time, we had been discussing donating a percentage of our sales to an organization that was local, something we believed in and had a creative aspect to it – something that fit with what we do, photography and children. We felt so lucky to have come across such a great organization! Once we researched more about Free Arts Arizona, the choice was clear – we fell in love! To find out more about Free Arts of Arizona, please visit their website freeartsaz.org. Here is a little intro from their website so that you get an overview of their mission.
“Children Painting Their Hopes, Coloring Their Wishes, Drawing Their Dreams

Free Arts of Arizona is a nonprofit organization that sparks the creative spirit of abused, homeless and at-risk children. Our goal is to inspire and transform their lives through the power of artistic expression. Volunteer Mentors use the visual arts, music, theater, dance, literary and culinary arts with children living in over 100 group homes, residential treatment centers and shelters in Maricopa County. Since 1993, Free Arts of Arizona has touched the lives of nearly 56,000 young people, helping them build self-esteem, improve social skills, renew trust and learn to express emotions in a positive way through the healing effects of the creative arts.”

For the last few months, we have donated 5% of all sales to Free Arts AZ – we sincerely hope that this is the beginning of a very long relationship.
