We Heart Arts sells beautiful shirts, donates profits to charity!



I wanted to share this wonderful story with you. We Heart Arts is a UK based non profit organization that works to raise money for young people's creative arts programs all around the world. 

I love this concept! 

Take a look at their mission statement: 
The goals of We Heart Arts are rooted in the belief that young people should be given the opportunity to express themselves creatively from an early age.
We believe that:
  1. Creative arts teaches young people the value of lifelong active personal expressionism
  2. Creative arts teaches young people to question the world they live in
  3. Creative arts teaches young people that thinking outside of the box is an important mental function in life
  4. Creative arts teaches young people to engage in a social network of proactive young people invested in a community built on meaningful, sustained ideas and expressionism
  5. Creative arts opens up a world of opportunities for young people to grow and help others through arts therapy
  6. Creative arts can open up an avenue of communication for young people with learning difficulties
  7. Creative arts can help young people process and work through traumatic experiences
  8. Creative arts can provide peer interaction and a sense of community, independence and feelings of control

WHAT WE WANT TO DO

  1. We want to raise money for young person’s creative arts through the selling of our t-shirts, prints and charity singles.
  2. We want to publish books that everyone young and old can enjoy. We also want to give away a copy of our books for free for every ten copies that we sell.
  3. We want to raise awareness for the need for young person’s creative arts programs and workshops with the help, love and endorsement of our favourite bands
 
 
What a great cause! This is definitely an organization that I could get behind! 

Right now the folks at We Heart Arts are selling this beautiful tee shirt, with a portion of the proceeds going to The Unit, a great youth arts organization in the UK. If you would like to check out these awesome shirts, you can do so here! Check it out today and help support a great cause!
