morocco_crayons_4 We seek to empower the children of under-resourced and marginalized communities developmentally, creatively and academically by providing them with used, new or repurposed crayons, which also benefits the environment by diverting these same non-biodegradable instruments away from landfills.

Our organization’s mission comes from the belief that self-expression is vital to a person’s intellectual, emotional and psychological development and well-being.  All of our activities are designed to promote our passion for art and self-expression as critical parts 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 usable crayons from adding to our landfills annually makes our activity all the more critical.
