Holiday Cards for Children at Bellevue Hospital 12/2022

Every year we send hand-made cards to children undergoing in-patient psychiatric care at Bellevue Hospital over the holidays. These children are working hard to overcome challenges and we are so proud of them. Their imaginations and spirits are indomitable.

Thank you to our professional artists who encourage and support these kids with their beautiful words and images; to Tifara and the other wonderful staff at Bellevue Hospital Pediatric Psychiatry Ward; and to Blick Arts Materials for donating the supplies that we share with each card, making for a meaningful gift that will allow the children to keep on creating anytime.

Claymation with New Alternatives for Children! 11/09/2022

Claymation with New Alternatives for Children! 11/09/2022

Check out the New Alternatives for Children kids in motion! Our Event Director, Lisa LaBracio, taught how to craft original clay characters then shift their positions bit by bit to make ’em move. In no time, the kids’ robots zinged through the sky, hungry mouths munched lunch, and athletes were shootin’ hoops. 

Huge thanks to our dear artist volunteers who guided the kids 1 on 1. Thanks to Elana Amity, Tim Savage, Todd Broder, Willy Hartland, and Franz Palomares for volunteering!
