Its been a very exciting spring and summer. I have been busy creating relationships with local organizations and businesses to expand Budding Artists. Since 2008, I have been making the majority of Budding Artists products in my basement. My kids called it a sweatshop! I am proud to say that I have been able to help over 75 organizations raise over $75,000 in last 6+ years.
Beginning this fall, Goodwill Industries will be making the majority of our products. In partnership with Pivotal Services, people who face barriers to employment will be developing job and social skills while producing the majority of our products. We are thrilled to be part of the process. So not only will you be raising funds for your organization you will be supporting people in my local community to gain experience for mainstream employment.
