Our Mission

We seek to empower every child by providing them with repurposed crayons for creative and self-expressive purposes, which thereby prevents these same non-biodegradable crayons from ending up in landfills.

Our organization’s mission comes from the belief that art is not a luxury, and that the need to express one’s self and to be creative is vital to a person’s development and well-being.  All of our activities are designed to further our ability to promote our passion for art as a critical part of the human experience, and to help ensure that every child, and every person for whom the use of a crayon might be a healing and empowering activity, has access to this most simple instrument and its profound potential.  That fulfilling this mission prevents tons of crayons from ending up in landfills, thereby improving the environment in which we live, makes our activity all the more critical.
