Here's how we're taking action

Donate to Crayon Collection

Our sustainable model makes Crayon Collection incredibly effective and scalable.  Your support enables us to reignite Art Education Programming and send professional artists into classrooms to teach children. These art lessons are usually the first and only exposure to the arts that a child has experienced, opening a never ending world of creative possibilities.

Turning discarded crayons into environmental and art education learning opportunities

Our goal is to ensure that every child has access to a crayon.

Having access to a crayon may seem natural but many of the children we work with have never owned even one crayon. By shifting the wasteful behavior of tossing still good crayons we  are able to provide millions of crayons + our art education program to the most underserved schools in the United States and beyond our borders.
