The mission of Craft with Me is to provide children facing challenges with the resources to participate in arts and crafts while  be inspired to develop their creative side.  The program also connects volunteers and recipients to work together to  promote  kindness and giving back. 

My name is Caroline and I am 14 years old. I created Craft with Me because I am very passionate about helping others. It brings me such joy to watch children connect through art. Craft with Me is so rewarding because it has created a platform that allows me to impact children in a positive way.
