Thanks to your generous donations, we exceeded our goal and raised over $6,000! This means well over 200 bags of clay can now be used to provide over 50 clay lessons for Philadelphia schoolchildren, many of whom receive little or no art education. We call this "Giving Beyond Tuesday"! Thank you.learn more
