One of my all-time favorite movies is Frozen II. I must have seen it over a dozen times in the past year since it’s release. I’m not married, a mom, or a sibling to young children so I (unfortunately) don’t have the excuse that “the kids wanted to watch it.” :b As a deep thinker, one of the aspects I love most about this show is all the complex layers, backstories, and hidden messages available to us -if only we choose to listen.
One of the aspects I love most about art is that each piece tells a story and narrative that words sometimes cannot accurately express. Each artist creates a piece with intention and purpose -whether to make a point, bring light to a current issue, or simply explore the wonder around them- they always have something worth saying. Art is also a way to channel emotion and try to make sense of some of the chaotic and crazy aspects of life happening around us.
Do you ever wish you could just wave a magic wand and then everything would be simply perfect? Without any extra effort on your part except the flick of your wrist? Can’t you just see it? In a moment, the dirty mess is replaced with clean, polished beauty and the unappealing areas are suddenly sparkling. The cat DIDN’T actually pee on your bed and the crazy hair day is just a bad dream.
So, where did the name, "Arts With Love," come from? What's the backstory? Is there a special meaning behind it? All of these questions are somewhat connected and all of them are answered in this blog. Jump on in and take a trip with me down memory lane ;)
So, how does it all work? How does the business give 100% of the profits away? Why are donations tax-refundable but the cards aren't? Here, I'll walk you through the in's and out's of Arts With Love and explain how this nonprofit works.
