After being diagnosed with a brain tumor at a young age, Emma Stumpf went through 70 weeks of chemotherapy, 6 weeks of radiation, and over a dozen brain surgeries. During that time, she turned to art to help express her feelings. She used yellow paint when she was happy, blue paint when she was sad, and clay when she felt angry. That experience inspired Emma to form Emma’s Art Carts when she was 7 years old. With LEAD360, we can help Emma achieve her dream of giving art supplies to every kid who’s going through a hard time and needs to express themselves.
Our goal is to collect and donate kits of 3 art supplies to kids across the country! Each kit has a value of approximately $9.
Step 1: Collect 3 art supplies
Step 2: Write an encouraging note
Step 3: Package it all together
Step 4: Identify a site in your community that needs art supplies and donate!
Step 5: Log your impact at lead360.jeffersonawards.org
Bonus Step: Share pictures of your activation on social media using #LEAD360
