Art Lessons and Art Auction SUCCESS

Our thanks to everyone who participated in our first ever online art auction. Despite being open for bidding all through March, the action really took off during our fundraising banquet. Virginian donors at the banquet were joined by their counterparts in California, South Dakota and Maryland.

The auction itself raised over $2,000 for CBC.

Alicia, you might remember her participating in our promo video when she was just 9. Today Alicia is 12 and she is one of the students who has thrived in our art classes.

Here’s what students have been saying about the opportunity to paint.
“I feel like painting gives me wings.”
“Painting is like creating a dream in real life.”
“When I draw I feel free from my worries.”

If you didn’t get to participate in the auction, there are other ways you can support CBC…

or Become a Dreambuilder

A Dreambuilder is a financial partner who provides the means for CBC to support the children in the slum community. As a monthly or annual donor, your financial support goes toward supporting CBC and all the children we serve. You are not supporting one specific child, but the mission as a whole.

It costs CBC approximately $40 per month ($120 quarterly and $480 annually) to support one child. We understand that everyone has different abilities to give and thus recognize each financial partner as a Dreambuilder partner, no matter what amount is given. All financial support helps build hope and opportunity for our children.

As a Dreambuilder, we will send you our gratitude in a thank you letter with a child story, full color photo, and video each month. Each Dreambuilder story will star a different CBC child. This way you can get to know all the children in our program. Sometimes we will send updates on children you have already met in previous Dreambuilder stories. We hope that through each story, you can learn about and connect to our children and reflect on how your financial support impacts each child. Click here to learn about giving!
