Dear Ms. Meadows and Artists,

We're so please to let you know that the portraits you created were delivered to the Syrian children, and it was a wonderful event. The children were so excited to receive your artwork and very touched by your efforts to create such special gifts. They live in stark conditions in the refugee camps, and to receive portraits made just for them was truly a unique experience for all. 

The following video begins with an introduction personalized for you, and then shows many children receiving their portraits together at all the different locations that were involved. 

Your students may be interested to know that they were joined in this effort by thousands of young artists from around the world. Therefore, rather than focusing on any portraits individually, the purpose of this video is to share collective joy and excitement of all the children together. 

Finally, please know that because of your financial contributions we were able to utilize $3,500 to support the aid organizations helping the children. That is a substantial amount of support for all of us to provide together, along wit these heartfelt portraits. 

We're so grateful for all of the extra time and effort you put into making this project possible. Together we are building a kinder world one portrait at a time and creating many cherished memories along the way. It is our true privilege to do this work with you, and we very much hope to have that privilege again. Please let us know whenever your students would like to join us for more portraits, and thank you for all you've done!
