I love, LOVE companies that have a mission or give back with the proceeds. All the products sold at Children’s Art Project, was inspired by a child’s art work. Such beautiful art and every time you look at your products it will put a smile on your face knowing a kid designed it.
The Children’s Art Project began in 1973 with a volunteer’s idea to create a Christmas card from a child’s artwork. Through the sale of merchandise featuring designs created by young cancer patients, the program funds important programs that touch more than 26,000 pediatric patients and families. All proceeds from the sale of products are invested directly into pediatric patients programs at MD Anderson, giving hope, normalcy and a promising future for young lives interrupted by cancer.
Art can be very therapeutic, not only are these strong children creating masterpieces, their art work is benefiting pediatric cancer patients and their families. There’s many ways you can help with the Children’s Art Project; make a donation, if you live in the Houston, TX area you can volunteer, SHOP and many more ways. They have many products from ornaments to umbrellas; stuff for the whole family including pets and it’s all originally art work. Reasonable prices and good quality. Looking for that perfect Christmas gift? Look no further and go check out all these amazing products and feel good about shopping!

Through worldwide sales of young cancer patients’ original artwork featured on seasonal note cards and gift items, the project has returned more than $30 million to programs that benefit pediatric cancer patients and their families. The Children’s Art Project’s highest priority is ensuring young patients have opportunities to live a more normal childhood. Each year, the programs funded through sales touch more than 26,000 pediatric patients and families.
