Students Rebuild – Self Portraits that will make a difference

Students Rebuild is a not for profit organization, begun in 2010,  that invites students world- wide to participate in art making for a cause.

Each year, Students Rebuild chooses an artistic theme, as well as a charity to donate to!  For each theme specific work of art that is created and sent in, the organization patrons, The Bezos family, donates $3 ( up to $600,000) to the designated , child specific, charity.
The Theme for this year’s creative challenge: Facing Differences. Create a self portrait (not smaller than 5″x5″) . that reflects what is unique about you.  You may use any media, and work in any style.
The Charity is CARE, to benefit children in Sri Lanka, Nigeria and the South Caucasus region.


Project Inspiration from Pinterest:
This opportunity is worth 2 service hours.  To count towards this year’s application, self portraits must be handed in to me by December 15.

Little Hats, Big Hearts to benefit the American Heart Association

Service Opportunity: Little Hats, Big Hearts

Join the American Heart Association in knitting/crocheting red hats for newborn infants and preemies.

I think it is reasonable to think that each hat would be worth 3 hours of service, and you can make up to two if you would like.
Please touch base with me if you plan to do this. I would like to look into sending all hats made as a group, so let’s plan that they will be brought to me for mailing.
