Help us support the Save the Children HEART (Healing and Education through the Arts) Foundation.
For every new Facebook follower the Kindermusik International page receives between the dates of 2/14/2012 (12:01 AM US EST) and 2/17/2012 (11:59 PM US EST), we will donate $1 to the Save the Children HEART (Healing and Education through the Arts) Foundation.
Here is information on the HEART Foundation from their Web site, which has a mission to reach and heal children living in countries and communities affected by conflict, violence, HIV/AIDS and extreme poverty using the arts, which is obviously something near and dear to our hearts.
Save the Children’s HEART program uses the arts to promote children’s development and well-being by providing them with a creative means of expression.
The program is targeted to children living in countries and communities affected by conflict, violence, HIV/AIDS and extreme poverty. Children, some so young they don’t yet have the language skills, learn how to use the arts to give voice to their emotions about difficult events in their everyday lives. This is critical to helping children cope, and putting them on a path to reach their full potential in life.
By working with local partners, Save the Children seeks to integrate HEART into its emergency response work, as well as its education and early childhood development programs so that the programs can continue for years to come.
