This week, patients from the Children's Cancer Hospital at M. D. Anderson Cancer Center kicked off the 2010 Valentine season with a special Valentine-making party in the Robin Bush Child and Adolescent Clinic. With glue, glitter and lots of paper, the kids made their own Valentines and signed Children's Art Project Valentine cards to give to adult patients at M. D. Anderson. The Valentines were later distributed to adult patients by the Department of Volunteer Services.
The Children's Art Project hosted the event, celebrating its 2010 Valentine collection while also meeting new Valentine designers. The designers are all undergoing treatment for cancer in the Children's Cancer Hospital at M. D. Anderson, and the artwork they create is often featured on the products produced and sold by the Children's Art Project. Since 1973, the art project has returned more than $27 million to the cancer center to support such programs as the education and child life programs, college scholarships, summer camps, pedi parties and other activities.
Children's Art Project Valentines are available for purchase at area grocery stores, retail locations, M. D. Anderson gift shops and the Children's Art Project Boutique in Uptown Park. They are also available online at www.childrensart.org or by calling (800) 231-1580.
