MD Anderson Children’s Art Project Review

The MD Anderson Children’s Art Project began when a hospital volunteer saw the beautiful artwork that a young cancer patient had drawn at the MD Anderson Center in 1973. The volunteer thought it looked like a Christmas card, founding the $6 million dollar business that today is called the Children’s Art Project. The Children’s Art Project funds more than $1.25 million every year for patient programs at the center. The Children’s Art Project operates as a business, but all the profit from the product sales are given to fund programs to benefit the educational, emotional and recreational needs of the patients.

Simply Southern Couponers  had the wonderful opportunity to review the Flower Burst Collage Sticky Pad from The Children’s Art Project. Cancer Funds is one thing I will bust my butt trying to help out. Losing my grandfather June 17, 2009 (3 months after Aubreigh was born) to Leukemia, and I lost my grandmother September 12, 2010 ( Just 2 weeks before Kaylee was born) to Lung Cancer. So many people at the hospital stepped up and made their long stays in the chemo rooms a little bit more fun because of projects like this one. All of the drawings are done by young kids who are trying to beat cancer.  The Flower Burst Collage Sticky Pad was designed by 4 kids and I was able to read about one on the website. I loved being able to go on the site and get to know the artist of the pad. I love the bright and colorful designs and how they were able to place 4 unique flowers from 4 different kids into a pretty and spring time sticky pad.
