PRLog - Jan. 18, 2013 - HOUSTON -- John Palmer Art has named Writers in the Schools (WITS) as its 2013 Charity of the Year! After a tremendous amount of research and meetings with non-profit staff and volunteers, John Palmer Art is incredibly excited to support this 501(c)(3) organization for the entire calendar year through the raising of funds and awareness. WITS is ranked the #1 literary organization in the state by the Texas Commission on the Arts--only one reason why John Palmer Art found this to be a meaningful match. Just as Palmer educates and inspires artists through his Escapist Mentorship Program, WITS empowers our cities' children through free expression of the written word and cultivation of their most prized assets, their minds. You can learn all about WITS by visiting WITSHouston.org.
