On behalf of Art Therapy Without Borders, Inc., (a US 501(c )(3) organization), we would like to thank you for your continuous support and hope that you consider ATWB as you make your year-end charitable contributions! During the past year, approximately 10,000 professionals and students from around the world have participated in our social media platforms on LinkedIn and Facebook or followed our Twitter via ATWB partners, Art Therapy Alliance and International Art Therapy Organization. We are proud to facilitate forums for art therapists to connect with each other, share information, exchange art work, discuss issues important to professional practice, and promote their services, workshops and publications— all for free, something no other art therapy organization provides. We also have been humbled by the appreciation and gratitude so many of you have expressed. It is truly an honor and privilege for Art Therapy Without Borders, Inc. to be recognized as an international voice for the field of art therapy.
As you plan your year-end giving during this time, we hope you will make a charitable, tax-deductible donation to Art Therapy Without Borders, Inc. In 2012, we plan to expand our mission to include a comprehensive international disaster relief database of professional art therapists around the world, new international art exchanges, hiring of support staff to help with basic operations and other initiatives to strengthen our networking capabilities. But in order to do so, we need your help. So we ask you to consider a donation of $10, $25, or more in order to help us build a stronger collective, global voice to promote the work of art therapists and encourage the public to recognize the power of art to transform lives.
Remember, even a donation of only $10 [US dollars; our donation system accepts international currency too!] will help us to make do much more in 2012.
Thank you in advance for your support. From all of us at Art Therapy Without Borders Inc., we wish you a wonderful season of celebration and a happy, healthy new year!
