Chalk Mural

Donation to Make-A-Wish

Every couple of months, Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington invites a new artist to create a chalk mural for their entrance lobby. I was honored to be one of the invited artists, and in October 2016, I spent the day drawing on their wall in their Seattle office.

Research has shown that having a wish granted is highly beneficial to children with life-threatening medical conditions. It gives them a much-needed break from the daily routine of medical appointments, and lifts their spirits as they have something to look forward to.

Wishes are a temporary escape from every day life, much like being whisked away on a hot air balloon. The world below reality) is still in sight, but far off in the distance. For the duration of the ride, however, wish kids are care-free.
