The Gift of Giving Art and Love

Your browser may not support display of this image.

Los Angeles, CA – On February 6th, 2010 Crewest Gallery will be delivering over 1,000 Valentines Day cards created and donated by 150+ artists from all over the world to the patients at The Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, The Children’s Hospital in Orange County and the Youth at LA Youth Network and possibly even more.

It all started over a month ago when Crewest Gallery sent out a “Huge Call to Artists” asking artists to participate in a Valentine’s Day Card Exchange for the patients at the Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles. Artists were asked to create, design and sign cards then send their cards to Crewest gallery. The expressed goal of the Valentine’s Day Card Exchange was to be able to provide at least 1 card per patient at the Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles (approx. 320 patients).

Through networking, the “Huge Call to Artists” was received by many including Ovation T.V., Art Slant, Artistdealineslist.com, etc. who posted Crewest’s call to artists on their sites. These sites helped greatly in spreading the word. Crewest gallery received an enormous response from artists from all over the world wanting to participate and who were all excited to show love to the kids. For some artists the Valentine’s Day Card Exchange hit home because they have once been a patient at the Children’s Hospital, they have a child who is suffering from an illness or they have kids and they can genuinely understand the benefits to showing love to the kids.

Due to the high volume of responses from artists and the number of cards to be submitted, Crewest is happy to announce that the gift of giving Art and Love through a Valentine’s day Card was able to be extended and will be received by not only the patients at The Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles but also to the patients at The Children’s Hospital in Orange County and the Youth at LA Youth Network and possibly even more.
