The SPORE Project goes to Ukraine

April 26, 2013

A HUGE thank you to everyone who donated or helped us to raise money for this project!

The SPORE Project is off to Ukraine to participate in summer camps for orphaned children. I am currently working in conjunction with a member from Hope4Orphans and Northland Church to help send a few volunteers to Ukraine on June 16th. Through several week long summer camps, they will be providing arts and crafts and paper bag mushrooms to hundreds of orphans.

Since 1999 I have been crafting and installing mushrooms made simply from paper lunch bags. It is a fun little project that shows how something can be made from nothing. The SPORE Project was created in 2005 to promote support for art in schools and to illustrate the importance of creativity in everyday life.
