"The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away."
- Pablo Picasso
My name is Emma Foss and I'm passionate about improving the lives of local children through Children's Miracle Network. Every child deserves high quality care regardless of what situation they were born into. Being sick is a scary experience for children, and Children's Miracle Network strives to make it easier. Color for the Kids is a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit which aims to help their mission.
As a former volunteer at my local Children's Miracle Network Hospital, Children's Hospital of Orange County, and a former ambassador for Children's Miracle Network through the Miss America Organization, it's safe to say I have seen my fare share of miracles. So many so, in fact, I decided I needed to take a larger part in them.
I am a fine artist and decided to illustrate my own adult coloring book so that I could donate the proceeds to help children in my community. This book was originally designed for parents of patients who are staying at hospitals with their children. Working in the playrooms at CHOC, I wanted to make the parents feel as special as we strive to make the patients feel every day. Which is why you can purchase a book for yourself or donate one to a local Children's Miracle Network Hospital.
What is Children's Miracle Network?
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® raises funds for 170 children’s hospitals across North America, which, in turn, use the money where it’s needed the most. When a donation is given it stays in the community, ensuring that every dollar is helping local kids.
Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $4 billion, most of it $1 at a time. These donations have gone to support research and training, purchase equipment, and pay for uncompensated care, all in support of their mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
