No Crayon Left Behind would have been unable to fulfil it's mission of empowering the children of under-resourced and marginalized communities without your help. The gracious outpouring of community support across the nation has been wonderful. We thank you for your love and generosity. Alas, our mission has come to an end.
To the many communities, organizations and individuals who have supported No Crayon Left Behind, we want to thank you for the vital role you’ve played in helping us grow over the past decade. We’ve gone from collecting crayons from a handful of local restaurants and operating out of a small corner of my garage to partnering with over one hundred restaurants and distributing nearly 2 million crayons both locally and to numerous countries around the world.
Over the course of our journey, we’ve heard stories from those who receive our crayons that run the gamut from heartbreaking, to uplifting, to both humbling and inspiring. We know that the gift of a crayon can be life changing for a child. Please, if you have reached this goodbye message, use your kindness and help others. Our mission may have ended but there is still much work to be done.
