SOKS is currently fundraising for a program that will allow children in the Okanagan, who can not afford classes in the arts, to attend a summer program that will introduce them to a wide variety of creative avenues. Ages range from 5 to 12 years old. I will be teaching two sessions. I will be teaching a mixed media class for younger children and an encaustic class for older children. I would like to be able to provide an "art pack" for each child to take home with them. There are 20 children in total for the classes I am teaching.
CritterAid & AlleyCats Alliance are two amazing organizations in the Okanagan who care for animals.
- Critteraid promotes and fosters animal welfare through the provision of sanctuary, education and rescue. We rely on the generosity and support of our amazing Critteraid members and volunteers through donation of time and funds. Critteraid is celebrating 25 years as a non profit organization dedicated to animal welfare in the Okanagan Valley.
- AlleyCats Alliance is a registered charity providing adoption, medical care, rescue, & rehabilitation to feral and orphaned cats & kittens throughout the Okanagan. Our deceased cat Lexi was from AlleyCats.
