A letter to anyone who has the ability to donate, sponsor, share, or support us ..
Please kindly forward this letter to someone in your organization who has a child, or spouse, or is personally fighting Cancer; it is only with their unique experiences that The WarPaint Project has value beyond what can ever be purchased and its our once in a lifetime gift that we change their world, at least for a moment, by a gift-giving event only Warriors of Life-altering, life-changing, and sometimes life-ending diagnosis can have; a tribute to their bravery, their unchanged faith, and a gift to the family that become one Warrior.
We are the Warpaint Project, created by two self-taught artists, a healthy mother and father of healthy children who learned the fragility of life; who've seen what the scars of breast cancer look like after a double mastectomy; who felt the terrible loss of a child in their Project who passed right before Christmas; who spend themselves in this worthy cause to paint for those Warriors of Cancer a painting made exclusively for this Tribute; a gift-giving event of enormous value, of a painting, made by the requests from their family, more than two dozen gifts from people just like them. It's, a sight to see, it moves you in ways words don't exist for, inspiring us all to be more generous with our gifts, more appreciative of our own lives. Its with tears of joy, with them knowing their fight is visible, that we, as healthy people, appreciate the one thing our Warriors fight for; more time. That we take the TIME to create, paint, share, and gather as many supporters as we can fit in that box of gifts. To realize the greatest gift is especially for those who donate to it.
Since there are no shortages of Warriors out there, we have to find artists, supplies, materials for gifts, and other gift-givers ,who want this moment when Warriors see the effort, and TIME, we take to gather and make this moment possible, was done because the power of their story unite us in an effort belonging to the ones who fight for the very thing we waste the most: TIME. We aim to extend the time it takes to finish opening this gift, that some parts of this gift last forever.
In this extraordinarily difficult part of their lives, we try to take away their thoughts of despair, of loneliness, of fear, and replace it with love, family, friendship, and gifts. To see their faces light with joy, with surprise, with gratitude they are considered a Warrior, that they stop feeling embarrassed, or bothersome at asking for our help and support; our mission in a single gesture: TO SHOW OUR WARRIORS THEIR FIGHT FOR LIFE IS A WORK OF ART.
Help us, embrace us, teach us, lead us, show us how we can use your donations to change the world. Or, let us show you how we can transform your donations into moments that change everything. After 309 nominations in 18 months, we've learned especially this; there isn't a gift that we can give that will ever be good enough. But, we can damn sure try, at least do that, because typing "prayers" with an emoji of two hands praying isn't enough.
We keep nothing you donate, it all goes to them, we've given and will continue to give everything we have for them. With that promise comes people who are drawn to help us, who donate to the Warpaint Project knowing its never thought twice about why we do this, that we give it all away for free. We've not fundraised for months, paying for everything on our own, now we need your help. Please donate, please share, please give this gift with us. We'll take anything you'll give and use it with respect and thrift, we have more Warriors than we have the time or talent for, but we've yet to turn anyone down, all we ask for from you is the ability to invite more Warriors into our home.
This is where your help meets Warriors in waiting. Thank you.
