You can give someone hope. The Conquer Cancer Foundation's Expressions of Hope calendar provides a way for anyone who has been affected by cancer - patients, friends, families, and caregivers - to share their emotions through art and inspire hope.
'Cancer affects the whole person, not just the body. I find that the visual arts help to restore the integrity of the 'whole' by giving the unseen experience a voice. On my cancer journey and beyond, artwork is a personal expression of hope by which I am able to encourage others,' said Karen Sudduth, Expressions of Hope artist and breast cancer survivor.
If you're not an artist, but know someone who is, please forward this opportunity to them. As fellow Expressions of Hope artist Jenna Valle-Riestra put it: 'Together, we can get through anything.'
The deadline for submissions is August 1st. Artwork from children is welcome!
For today's Daily Action, if you're an artist whose life has been touched by cancer, consider submitting artwork to the Expressions of Hope calendar.
If for some reason you choose not to take the action above, please take a look at our alternative action.
Right now, the Minnesota Vikings are building a new stadium with glass that will be dangerous to birds. Let's make sure this stadium is built in a way that doesn't harm precious wildlife!
For today's Secondary Action, tell the Vikings to save the birds!
