How Chelsea’s tenth birthday changed thousands of children’s lives
It all started on Chelsea Phaire’s tenth birthday.
Instead of getting gifts, Chelsea decided that she wanted to give them. So, for her birthday, she asked her friends to gift her art supplies that she would then donate to a local shelter. Her friends responded, Chelsea donated the supplies, and ‘Chelsea’s Charity’ was born.
Since her first donation, Chelsea has continued to gather arts and crafts supplies, which she donates to foster homes, hospitals, shelters and schools. Each art kit contains things like crayons, colored pencils, markers, paint and brushes, canvases, booklets and sketch pads, and is designed to give kids everything they need to be creative, to play and to express themselves.
