One in a Million Award recipient: Lifting Hearts with the Arts
Where they are multiplying good: Chicago, IL
How they are multiplying good: The non profit connects youth with isolated seniors in care facilities across the US through technology (video chatting) and through the arts! By the organization's 3 month birthday in July, they had held over 800 meetings with seniors and had gained over 50 volunteers in 5 different states. They work with seniors living at various care facilities across the US and isolated seniors at home. From hosting virtual mini concerts and painting lessons to cooking shows and even google earth museum tours, the students have been working to accomplish their mission of bridging social gaps between youth and the elderly by using the arts. Their program has connected people of all different backgrounds and has helped improve mental health of both seniors and the youth by creating lasting friendships. They plan to continue for as long as possible and spread their reach to as many seniors as they can.
