We at LittleDaVinci.com are often asked why we decided to create a business around our movement instead of a charity?  It’s a great question, considering that one our goals is to raise money for elementary and middle school art programs.  We strive for sustainability, so if we want to inspire creativity and promote the artistic creations of children forever, then we cannot rely solely on the donations of willing individuals or corporations.  One of our favorite companies, TOMS Shoes, provides shoes for kids all over the world through business, not charity.  The founder of TOMS, Blake Mycoskie, explains why in an interview he did at the Clinton Global Initiative.  We think his answer works well for LittleDaVinci.com, so become part of our movement and upload your child’s artwork, then buy some note cards or a print!  As always, we give 20% of all sales back to our partner schools in order to keep art and creativity alive for our kids.
