aTeam’s Heart 2 HeART program supports children with pediatric cancer by pairing them with well known and talented professional artists in an effort to celebrate and inspire them. By being given the opportunity to create art, these children are aided in expressing their journey with cancer, an important part of their healing process.
The impactful works that the children create are done with the help and instruction of a professional artist and in that artist’s signature style. In addition to the art created by the children, the professional artist partner creates a work inspired by the child. This work again celebrates the life and journey of the child, fulfilling aTeam’s goal of support and encouragement for these brave children.
These inspired works are presented and sold by both live and silent auctions at aTeam’s annual Heart 2 HeArt event. As aTeam main yearly fundraiser this entertaining night provides over 60% (per 2012 statistics) of aTeam’s ministry budget.
