Chance, 8 — SELF-ESTEEM
Chance came to SPARK! very unsure of his creative ability, insisting he was only able to draw circles and squares. Chance attended week five of summer camp where the campers were focused on exploring the creatures of the jungle and the ocean. A nervous Chance never hesitated on his drawing, although he was unsure of his capabilities.
Chance’s self-esteem grew throughout the week as he continued to draw new jungle and ocean creatures and improve his drawing skills. By the end of the week, he created a beautiful drawing of a panda in a 3D environment that turned out better than he could have ever imagined. He was so proud of his work, he couldn’t wait to show it off to his dad, a Dallas County Sheriff.
Every day, your support makes stories like Chance’s possible. All it takes is one gift. Regardless of the size, your thoughtful and generous donation will help children discover and develop their unique creativity, boost their self-esteem, enhance their problem-solving skills and achieve a future they may never have envisioned.
Studies show that children who define themselves as creative have higher self-esteem, better problem-solving skills, will go further in their education and contribute to their communities. Yet 84% of educators believe today’s curricula does not place enough emphasis on creative problem solving.
Your gift can make a big, lasting impact on a kid’s life.
