Roots and Wings 9x13 2013 Thrive Art Auction donation
Since Thrive is a non-profit benefiting families, it seemed only natural to donate a painting from my Roots and Wings Series: The two greatest gifts we can give our children are roots and wings. The highest bidder won this painting that will reflect their family: birds represent the children with their names attached and then the family's last name . Truly one-of-a-kind heirloom celebrating the importance of family.
Thrive's Mission: All children have every opportunity to grow, succeed and become valuable members of our community through programs that engage parents and empower children.
Thrive is a community-based organization established in 1986. At the heart of Thrive lies a preventative, strength-based, empowerment model of working with parents and children. For over 26 years, Thrive has provided families with the resources, tools, and support to raise healthy, successful children. Our programs have been developed using evidence-based practices, adapted to meet local community needs, and rigorously evaluated to ensure program efficacy. Thrive has developed critical community partnerships built on sharing design, implementation, management, evaluation, financial resources, and responsibilities for programs. This approach, which has the success of the child at its center, results in the highest quality services, maximizes scarce resources, and has a powerful impact on outcomes for children.
