Bluebird Project: Raise Awareness for Children in Foster Care

May is National Foster Care Month. 

Firnew artists supported the “Bluebirds on a Stick” project and created many lovely bluebirds on sticks to help to raise awareness for children in foster care. The Bluebird collection will be on display at The Haven, 112 Market St, Charlottesville, VA in May. On May 5, during the lively First Friday Art Walk, the flock will be carried by volunteers to soar up and down the pedestrian mall. After the Bluebird parade, up to 50 bluebird artworks will be sold in a silent auction. Funds raised will go to help children in foster care by training and supporting foster care families, and by giving foster children a voice in court through the advocacy work of Piedmont CASA Volunteers.
