THE CRAYON PROJECT
Help kids learn to respect others and themselves
Children deserve to know they belong, especially in school. One simple yet powerful way to achieve that is giving them art supplies that represent a range of skin tones. That way, they can more accurately reflect themselves in every self portrait or superhero they draw.
Looking to make a difference in the world? The Crayon Project raises funds from people and businesses across the U.S. and donates multicultural art supplies to schools and non-profit organizations in an effort to spread respect for diversity among young children.
A simple process.
An important mission.
1. Educators request care packages by filling out a brief questionnaire.
2. Donors contribute funds to cover the costs of materials and shipping.
3. We fulfill orders and get inclusive art supplies into the hands of young students.
