One of the most rewarding things about having a successful business is the ability it provides to contribute philanthropically. We are thrilled to announce the launch of the Hanky Panky Supports PeaceLove collection for Summer 2016.
When we met Jeffrey Sparr and learned of his PeaceLove Studios™, we were immediately impressed with his concept to bring peace of mind through artistic expression. In his early workshops, Jeff would share his story, show his art, and then challenge participants to think about “what gives you peace of mind?”, and then paint it.
The artwork that was translated onto our signature lace for this capsule collection was created during one of the very first Paint4Peace™ expressive arts workshops by Cathy Van Lancker, a middle school art teacher in Providence, RI. Staff is encouraged to jump in and participate during the sessions and Cathy did just that. When asked about her painting, Cathy shared, “Making art gives me peace of mind. Having the opportunity to share PeaceLove® and this experience with my students was special. The different hearts represent my students and the joy I felt creating with them.”
