Color for Kids is on the move, into more schools and classrooms - stop in here to see where we are now! 

What's going on

To promote individual expression and creativity through color, of children in high poverty schools, enrolled in grades pre-k through four, by providing personal art supplies. 

I am a fifth grade student in Pennsylvania, and I LOVE art and COLOR of any kind!! When I found out that not all kids have their own box of crayons, I got very upset, and I wanted to do something to change that.  I started collecting all kinds of art supplies to send to kids who don't have their own and began a program called 'Color for Kids'.  Hundreds of amazing people have donated to my program, and I am sharing COLOR with kids all across the globe.  My hope is that one day, all kids will have a way to create with color.   

 Together, we can color up the world!"


In August 2016, Color for Kids became Color for Kids Inc and was approved as an official non-profit organization by the IRS.

Here you will find printable forms, letters, and tips to help make your own color collection easy!
