Seeds of Hope Award Winner Jayne Black

We're pleased to announce our next Seeds of Hope award recipient, Jayne Black! Jayne is one of five individuals and groups to be chosen by the Volunteer Center to receive a Seeds of Hope award. Read on for more information on how Jayne has planted seeds of hope during these challenging times. Jayne Black is the president and co-founder of Creative Kids Rock www.creativekidsrock.org. Jayne creates awareness about dyslexia and celebrates the creative artistic strengths of children with dyslexia. During the pandemic, she was not able to hold events, but knew she had to continue her mission of reaching children through inspiring art and creativity! Jayne created multiple virtual events, like the “Virtual Art Project Cards for our Elderly” event, where children and families could volunteer to make art/cards that were then sent to nursing homes to bring smiles and virtual hugs. Over 400 cards have been created and sent to local nursing homes. Jayne also created a virtual art project where volunteers decorated lunch bags for Howe Community Resource Center. These lunch bags were then handed out by the Howe Community Resource Center at their free student lunch site. Jayne also put together 125 art projects that surprised the students receiving free student lunches to inspire creativity during this time. Jayne felt it was more important than ever for people to do art and be creative to get their feelings out, like words on a canvas. She believes that art is powerful in so many ways and wanted to help in any way that she could. Jayne’s message to children with dyslexia and all children is to shine bright, and these projects did shine a bright light during what was for many a dark time. Please join us in congratulating Jayne on receiving this award! The Seeds of Hope Awards are made possible by a generous gift from American National Bank Fox Cities. #SeedsOfHopeAwards #CreatingStrongerCommunities #KeepOnWI
