[Give Chances] April Weekly Newsletter 1

Vitabrid x Give Chances

We are thrilled to announce that cosmetics brand Vitabrid has generously donated cosmetics to the Give Chances DDartists Program. We'd like to thank Vitabrid for their consistent donations, which have helped us provide paid employment to children with developmental disabilities, as well as help improve their artistic skills. We applaud Vitabrid's corporate social responsibility and dedication to supporting these children.

We are currently running a fundraiser with these wonderful products -- offering products ranging from brightening vitamin powders, hair tonics, wrinkle serums, and creams. 

You can participate in the fundraiser and find product details at this link. All proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards supporting our artists with developmental disabilities. 

To thank everyone who purchases, we will be giving away handmade Mother's Day Cards created by DDartists!


Art Classes at the Palisades Park Branch

Our Palisades Park Branch has been providing art classes for students using a diverse curriculum, various techniques, and materials.

The positive feedback received from the children, who are excited and happy to participate, has been a testament to the effectiveness of the program.

It has been heartwarming to hear from several parents, who expressed their satisfaction of the classes. One parent mentioned, "I would like to express gratitude for being able to provide my daughter with an opportunity to learn and enjoy art, as we were unable to send her to a private art academy. It's clear that your commitment to providing diverse curricula and using a variety of materials is making a positive impact on the lives of our children in the community. Keep up the excellent work!"

Please take a look at some of the pictures taken by our art teacher!
