St. Mary

We feel so fortunate to have come to know and love the kids at St. Mary’s over the years.  Despite dealing with challenges like cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, paralysis, and burns, these children bring boundless joy and creativity to every activity we do together.  Today we helped the kids learn how to draw Disney cartoon characters like Mickey and Minnie Mouse, the Little Mermaid, Lilo & Stitch, as well as drawing the kids’ caricatures.

Thank you, St. Mary’s staff, for always being so welcoming and professional, thanks to our Ink Well volunteers for just being the best: Howard Beckerman, Pedro Delgado, Tim Savage, Adrian Sinnott, Joe Vissichelli, and a huge shout out to Dennis Calero for leading this entire event!

Camp TLC Superhero Self-Portraits!

We loved making super hero self-portraits with the Camp TLC kids! We asked the campers to think of their own strengths and skills, what they’re proud of, and how they’d like to help people. Then the kids transformed wooden and paper figurines into their super-selves! 

Thanks to Camp TLC, the Boys and Girls Club of Hollywood, and to our Ink Well volunteers: Jeremy Arambulo, John Dubiel, Chad Frye, Steve Hirt, Nora Meek, Valerie Nielsen, Ashley Simpson, Zane Yarbrough, and W. Coast Director, Joseph Scott. A huge welcome to first timers, John, Steve, Nora, Valerie and Zane! And thanks to Batman for swooping in too 🙂 The Camp TLC serves children who have experienced life or medical trauma.
