Join the movement & give back
Give the gift of expressive arts this winter by supporting #artforhmea this #GivingTuesday ~  December 1st, 2015

HMEA has joined forces with #GivingTuesday to capture the generous giving spirit during the holiday season. #GivingTuesday, which takes place the first Tuesday of December, is an international movement that inspires people to take collaborative action to improve their communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they support. And, this year, HMEA is asking you to help raise money to fund its art therapy programs throughout the cold winter months ahead. 

Arts and Crafts are a significant part of the activities we do in our Day Programs here at HMEA. Beyond the obvious enjoyment, art therapy helps facilitate personal expression, improves social skills (building "social confidence"), enhances self-esteem, and fosters cognitive development. 

We are asking for your help to fund  #artforhmea  for people to enjoy the benefits of art therapy all winter long  - donate $10, $25, $50, or more today  to support HMEA's art therapy program this holiday season.  Just $25 would give one person the enjoyment of doing arts and crafts until Spring.

This holiday season, whether you chose to Give Joy, Give Hope, Give Love, Give  Time, Give Food, Give Thanks, or give to #artforhmea, we ask that you simply  GIVE  this holiday season.
