The Periwinkle Foundation’s Making a Mark® is open to children from treatment centers all over the world. To highlight Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, we have been proud to display more that 200 entries annually since the first exhibit. After the artwork was exhibited at Texas Children’s Hospital, a variety of pieces are now traveling to other venues throughout the country.
These pieces of Purple Ribbon art come from around the world.
The Periwinkle Foundation develops and provides programs that positively change the lives of children, young adults and families who are challenged by cancer and other life threatening illnesses and are cared for at Texas Children’s Hospital.
Each year more than 4,000 children are touched by Periwinkle programs Camp Periwinkle, Camp YOLO, Family Camp, the Long Term Survivor Program and the Arts & Creative Writing Program which culminates each year in a traveling exhibition of art by children touched by cancer and blood disorders. Through camping, recreational and arts programming, The Periwinkle Foundation provides opportunities for these special children and their families to heal emotionally, lead fuller lives and become stronger survivors. With the generous help of our friends and supporters in the community, The Periwinkle Foundation changes lives for life. Learn more at www.periwinklefoundation.org.
