Hi everyone! I’m Jen of the Truly Wealthy Mommy and this is Jyenn, my 6-year old son. Together, we are launching this new project called Jyenn’s World of Art for Kids.
WHAT IS JYENN’S WORLD OF ART FOR KIDS?
Originally, I planned to start an entrepreneurship project with my son when I saw that he has been passionate with his art lately. I planned to turn his digital art into bookmarks, and together with him, sell these to our friends and family for his very own small “business.” I wanted him to learn that he can create things and turn them into a sort of a running business. So, while waiting for the right time to start it and to have funds for it as well, I just told him to continue making his digital art which he does so in his tablet.
However recently, I have found my calling to serve and decided to sign up for volunteering with some non-profit organizations caring for children. That is the seed that bore fruit to this idea that, INSTEAD of making his own small business out of his art, we decided to make this an avenue to help other kids.
HOW WILL THIS PROJECT WORK?
For two weeks starting today, July 26, 2014, we will be enjoining friends, family and other kindhearted souls to support our cause and help us start up. With just Php100.00 (approx. $2.50), anyone can donate and help us with start up costs. We will be needing a 3in1 printer, and stationery materials for printing cards and bookmarks (hopefully in the future we can venture into other products).
Why two weeks? It is our time frame for start up to make sure things get going. It means that in two weeks, we should be able to set up and start production. But we will still gratefully accept your help after two weeks as this will be an ongoing project. In two weeks, we will be contacting and presenting the project to our preferred beneficiaries which are also the NPOs that I have applied to for volunteering. We will also start production and marketing phase in two weeks so that we can go right ahead to selling and fundraising phase.
HOW ELSE CAN YOU HELP?
If you have less than Php100.00 but would still like to help, you can do so by forming a group and pooling your donations together.
If you are a graphic designer or know one, we would appreciate you donating a logo design for Jyenn’s World of Art for Kids. Please contact me with your ideas.
If you have stationery materials that you would like to donate, we will be very much grateful to accept them.
If you want to donate a printer or volunteer your printing services, that would be lovely as well.
HOW WOULD YOU KNOW THAT YOUR DONATIONS WILL REALLY BE USED TO HELP?
Everything that we will receive from donors will be documented in this blog. As a default, names of donors will all be published here, except the amount of donation, of course. So if you don’t want your name mentioned, please let us know so that we can exclude you in the list but still know that our gratitude is yours.
Constant updates will be posted on the blog including funds collected, expenses, etc. Donors will also have the option to personally receive updates about the project.
WHO ARE THE PREFERRED BENEFICIARIES?
We would like to give the proceeds to Tahanan ng Pagmamahal and He Cares Foundation which are both non-profit organizations caring for children. Although I have applied to them as a volunteer, they are not yet informed of this project as I don’t want to approach them empty-handed. In two weeks, when start up funds are at hand, they will be formally informed of the project. You can check their websites by clicking on their names.
HOW CAN YOU DONATE?

We would like to thank you in advance for your wholehearted support for this project! Together, let us use our talents in being a blessing to others!
May all our dreams come true,
Truly Wealthy Mommy
