Your Donation Makes a Difference

Your donations make a direct impact on the life of a child living with cancer.

$25 donations will bring an ArtCares ArtBag to a patient at the Pediatric Oncology and Hematology Units of the Holtz Children’s and Baptist Children Hospitals. The ArtBags are gifted to bedridden children to provide a much needed diversion from their long hospital stays, and to patients upon discharge from the hospital after their completion of treatment. The ArtBag includes sketchbooks, paints, paintbrushes, canvasses, pencils, and markers. Name recognition of your gift donation will appear on the ArtBag.

$75 allows ArtCares for Kids to donate a copy of our signature ArtCares ArtMural to brighten up the hospital room of a patient at the Pediatric Oncology and Hematology Units of the Children’s Hospital.

The ArtCares Mural was a collaboration effort amongst all of its members, inspired by the need to add color to the hospital walls. The original piece measures 6′ x 12′ and smaller copies were reproduced to brighten the patients’ room.

The young patients spend a large number of hours confined to their rooms. Help make theirs a more colorful and pleasant place! Name recognition of your gift donation will appear on the ArtMural.
