Students will participate in this project by thinking about what makes them happy and sharing those thoughts through drawings and words of hope and inspiration, which The Advocates will place in a 2014 calendar. This calendar will then be shared to raise funds through selling and generating cause awareness, as well as given to donors in appreciation for their support. The calendars will spread hope and happiness for the families assisted by the Advocates as well as for the entire community. Students will see their art and words of inspiration displayed on calendars, sell and purchase calendars in support of The Advocates’ programs, and see some selected work on The Advocates? websites. Staff will come to classrooms and educate students about The Advocates’ programs and about how the calendars will help support those programs.

Optional: The Advocates will display all art work and words of inspiration at one or more local businesses and student artists will attend to discuss their work.
