Heart Gallery's mission is to promote adoption of children currently in Alabama's foster care system. In order to promote adoption for these waiting children, Heart Gallery Alabama recruits professional photographers to take meaningful portraits that capture the unique spirit of each child.
Bracelets for teen boys.
The average child in Alabama's foster care system is an African American teenage boy. We assist in recruitment of these children and give each child a gift at the end of the shoot. We have very few items that this age group is interested in. We found a rope bracelet that have a positive message of peace that we would like to distribute so that the boys will have a positive experience and participate in their recruitment effort.
We do photo shoots with teenagers to assist with their recruitment. We would like to purchase bracelets from cooljewels.com that can be distributed to the teen boys. We seem to have donations that attract our teen girls, but we don't have items that we can give boys. This will help them remember their recruitment experience in a positive light. We can order 156 bracelets for $200. This will go a long way.
