Your Donations are Valued

Crayons Matter has partnered with the Walmart leadership team in Greensboro, NC Store #3658 to purchase essential school supplies for the children at our sponsor schools in Ghana, Greensboro, and other local and global communities. It is critically important that every dollar donated to Crayons Matters is spent wisely so that we can supply the greatest number of backpacks filled with crayons, colored pencils, yellow #2 pencils, and notebooks to students in need.

Your contributions of art do matter! Please contact us to discuss ways to host an Art Party or plan a Giving Party. CRAFT, CREATE, COLLECT, and SHARE art work for our backpacks during Birthday Celebrations, School Functions, Church Events, Neighborhood Gatherings, and when spending time with family and friends.
