#GivingTuesdayNOW is a new global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020, as an emergency response to the unprecedented financial impact on nonprofits caused by COVID-19.
Due to the COVID-19 shut down, schools, libraries and many other youth agencies have had to cancel programming until the threat has passed. In addition to developing new strategies and seeking new resources, Art from Ashes has focused on responding quickly to the urgent needs of young people who may no longer have a safe space or a creative outlet.
Art from Ashes nurtures creative expression in some of the hardest hit youth in our society. It’s not only about being creative, it’s also about young people discovering and speaking their truth of who they are and their value in the world. Art from Ashes helps youth find their voice through poetry and art!
Art from Ashes nurtures creative expression in some of the hardest hit youth in our society. We’ve been busy setting up multiple ways to support young people by providing virtual prompts; researching how to access and best utilize online spaces for facilitation; learning new ways of facilitating Phoenix Rising prompts in a virtual space; and recording youth participation.
Because so many fundraising events (hosted by us and local and national business sponsors) have also been canceled in the upcoming weeks, we could sure use your help. Please support our 17th year of reinforcing the belief that every youth possesses creative genius and deserves to be seen and heard!
On May 5, you can join others around the world in supporting work you care about and help us continue our award-winning creative youth empowerment programs.
