Window Arts Enrichment

An Official Campaign Partner of "The Arts! Ask for More!"

A word from W.A.E

A note from our founder

Welcome to our new website and welcome to W.A.E.!

I founded this organization because I wanted to make a difference in the lives of young people.  In our country and communities around the world there are so many under-served children. At a time when fiscal deficits consume so much of our attention , we face an even more urgent deficit in the development of our children.  It is important that we each take a stand to ensure our future by pouring into those that will be running our future; socially, culturally , intellectually, spiritually or financially. Sounds like a lot of work right? It is, for one or just a few of us, but this is a stand we can make together! Vision, imagination, and dedication is what is needed and that’s what we are all about.

Window Arts Enrichment is a non-profit organization where children are encouraged and given the opportunity to learn, explore and create.  We are dedicated to developing well-rounded leaders of tomorrow.  Our programs are designed to promote healthy mental and physical stimulation in children, with an emphasis on serving the world around them.

There has been a call to save the planet by making going green a priority, but first we must save our children by making them a priority .  Join us in doing your part to make difference in a child’s life today. At home, in your neighborhoods or schools - together we can do this!

Much Love!

There once was a blind man standing on the edge of the shore facing the sea who heard a voice beside him say “Look Again”.  Startled the man said who are you?  The voice repeated “Look Again!”.  Can’t you see that I am blind”, insisted the man, “I can’t see”!  Again, the voice said “Look Again!”.  Frustrated and aggravated the man turned and walked away feeling sorry for himself, because life had dealt him such a tragic bad hand.  It was obvious just by looking him and his situation he thought, that he could not do such an unreasonable and outlandish request.  The man could not see, that just because he was blind did not mean he had no vision.  He did not understand that the voice was not referring to his natural sight, but God’s view of him; something far more capable and valuable than  he thought himself to be.  He certainly could not comprehend that he could influence and enrich someone else’s life. 

How about you?  Are you like the blind man?  Life is a choice. Choose the highest vision of yourself and someone else.  The next time you see a group of young people standing around in what appears to be doing nothing, or the child everyone labels as a bad kid, “Look Again”.  See past your preconceived notions, stereotypes and your own worldview and envision them in their highest gifts and potential. 

That is what we try to do at Window Arts Enrichment.  Every child needs a chance to be looked at in a new light and given an opportunity to express and live out their highest vision of themselves.  Join us in spreading renewed vision to a whole new generation. 

Blessings,

R.C.

Now is the time and season where you can make a difference.  How many of us go about our day only being concerned with those things that pertain to us and our needs.  We stand in line at a grocery store and see a child crying while a mother is franticly searching her purse to find change to pay for what little items she has, and we say to ourselves “that doesn’t concern me.”  Children go to school with shoes and clothes too big and no coat or jacket and we think “it’s a shame, but what can I do about it?”  We see teens hanging out on the street corners and we get annoyed and think “somebody should do something about that.”  Maybe that someone should be you.

We can all play a part in serving our children and the people around us.  Volunteer at a local school in your area.  Talk to a teacher or counselor and see what child is in need and go the extra step to help.  Get together with a group of friends and go give out free waters and an encouraging word to those teens hanging out with nothing to do.  Maybe they are waiting for you with new ideas and opportunities.  Next time you are at the store, pay for an item for someone else. 

If each of us does small things they can add up to big change.  It’s time to stop waiting for someone else to make a change.  Start by being an ARK, a person who gives A Random act of Kindness.  Get creative with your ARK and watch the world around you change, because you made a difference.

Much love!

RC
