Atlanta’s Drawchange Partners with Portland’s Dreaming Zebra Foundation
Two cross-country arts-based nonprofits team up to change children’s lives
Once trust was built through a relationship over these social media outlets, Dreaming Zebra answered a call on drawchange’s Facebook page for art supply donations. Dawne Camera, founder of Dreaming Zebra, posted on the call for materials page that her organization wanted to fulfill this year’s entire art supply request list. Jennie Lobato, founder and CEO of drawchange, responded immediately, thanking Camera and her organization for their incredible offer of support.
Lobato couldn’t be more elated for all of the lives this generous donation is going to transform stating, “They will be providing many of our art supplies for our local homeless shelter programs, as well as our international Costa Rica Art Beyond Borders program this year.”
Drawchange regularly visits the Nicholas House Homeless Shelter and My Sister's House Homeless Shelter, both in Atlanta, GA—providing empowering art experiences for children while their parents attend adult education classes or tend to household matters.The drawchange team is grateful that Dreaming Zebra’s gift will help provide critical emotional support to children as their families transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency.
This substantial donation will also aid drawchange’s Costa Rica Art Beyond Borders program. The program, which is in its fifth year, will bring a team from Atlanta to support art education in a rural Costa Rican village this spring for a life-changing experience of service, culture, and transformation.
This burgeoning partnership shows how social media can bring about positive change and build lasting relationships—
