6 Year Old Donates to Charity To Help Other Kids

Standard

A little girl named Jade, 6 years old, painted these pictures in her art therapy session and donated them to the That Adopted Girl National Adoption Month awareness art gallery show. She really wanted to help the cause and we were MORE than happy to add her pieces to the show heart emoticon. Jade unfortunately lost a parent to illness a couple of years ago so when she heard what foster kids experience she connected to it on some level. She said that she could be in foster care if she had lost both parents, which she really hopes never happens. Both of Jade’s paintings sold today!!! Imagine, 6 years old with a huge heart wanting to help raise awareness for other kids, and now also having sold her first art pieces!

Thank you SO much Jade for your contribution!

National Adoption Month Awareness Project 2015

Standard

The That Adopted Girl ‘ Forgotten Futures’ gallery opening last night held at EDEN Art Studio and Gallery in The Arts Factory was awesome! We are immensely proud of this awareness campaign during National Adoption Month. The campaign and the opening night manifested almost exactly as we envisioned! The vibe was just right with music by Vertex, wine from Khoury’s Fine Wine and Spirits , gourmet popcorn from Popped and incredible people from across the Las Vegas Valley.

The pieces in Forgotten Futures were created from the hearts, minds and experiences of foster youth, former foster youth and local Las Vegas artists. They are inspiring and powerful, and they speak volumes about the kids in the foster care system and of adopted kids across the U.S.

Guests were looking at the paintings, reading the stories that went with each painting and raising their social consciousness. More than once we heard “I didn’t know that kind of thing happened” and “WOW.”

A BIG thank you to everyone who came and showed support, made generous donations and purchased some of the art pieces. We had so much fun and are excited for the next 2 weeks of the show! Take some time this week to experience Forgotten Futures by That Adopted Girl.

Why helping people is badass

Standard

I founded That Adopted Girl in 2014.  If you don’t know about That Adopted Girl, it’s a 501(c)3 non-profit organization formed to inspire, empower and uplift kids in the foster care system, as well as to raise awareness about adoption and foster care in the United states.

Since founding That Adopted Girl I have been called sweet, cute, etc.  I understand that these classifications are coming from a good place.  But…these words make me cringe a little every time I hear them.  It takes everything in me not to show my discomfort through my facial expression.  If I don’t have much time to stay and chat I smile and say “thank you.”  If I do have time to stay and chat I smile and say, “No, I’m a badass.”

Helping people is badass.  It is what we should all be doing.  It is a hustle, it’s a grind and it helps society as a whole.  I’m not sweet.  I am determined to reduce human suffering and increase the amount of positive energy in this world.  Changing lives in a positive way is my passion.  Passion is power.

Helping humankind progress to be as powerful, strong and loving as possible is a PRIMARY human purpose.  #Alpha

Love always,
