GNA last night at Shindig for #artfeedday!

We were invited to the cutest party (or should we say Par-Tee or Tee Party) last night at the Shindig & Shirley’s Flowers shop in downtown Bentonville. Our sweet friend Marcy Camacho hosted a little get-together for a great cause.

She invited 16 of her gal pals to decorate Art Feeds tshirts. If you don’t know what the #artfeedsday movement is all about, you need to get on board. Now. 

Our new besties, Marcy Camacho and Meg Bourne Hulsey!

Art Feeds was created and founded by Meg Bourne Hulsey. Meg (can we just say how amazing she is?!) knows that all children are artists. Her nonprofit exists to feed creative development and emotional expression in children. The organization provides free therapeutic art and creative education programs within schools and children’s organizations by facilitating teams of community members to bring all forms of art into classrooms.

In the spirit of hosting a fabulous party, Marcy served the most delicious cookies from Frosted Cakerie in Joplin, Mo., and champagne cocktails, of course. Each of the women we met last night were fabulous and a powerhouse in their own right. 

Ummmmm, you had me at cookies!

Each of the 16 guests paid a $30 registration for the tshirt, and the money raised provides art packs for 32 kids. An Art Pack is a tote filled with all the essential supplies that Art Feeds gives to students in its program. This way, the students learn to express and create in class with Art Feeds, and then get to take their art packs home to continue the creative process. 

The shiny beginnings of our new "sleeves!"
