Exploring the power of story: A literacy of self in community 

As the KidSAKE Foundation journeys through its twentieth year - and as the world battles a shared enemy, COVID-19 - we, like many, stop to reflect, regroup and respond to the needs arising from this conflict. 

 

KidSAKE began as a response to a United States Airman (son/brother/ parent/friend) writing home to his family about the Airmen’s humanitarian efforts and visits to orphanages in central Honduras. This Airman’s sister, a good friend of mine, shared his letters and we felt moved to reach out to our communities in Tennessee, Indiana and beyond to find ways to support our military humanitarians—both in their work as volunteers and to encourage and thank them for their service. Our purple heart with helping hands logo is a nod to their heroic and selfless acts and our commitment to do the same.

 

The seeds of service that we nurtured then - and projects we have undertaken since - have born much fruit; changing lives through involvement in the arts and partnerships that have brought universities, communities, and countries together in meaningful and powerful ways. 

We recognize the power of - and need for - connection. So, we have partnered with Sophie Press to create greeting cards for you to thank, celebrate and inspire the heroes and loved ones in your life.

 

Wishing you hope, health and strength in this season,

        • The artist story behind the card: In an old sketchbook, in the back of a drawer, was a sketch of a crouched figure. I drew it many years ago. One day, the sketchbook was pulled out to give paper to my grandson who was very young and non-verbal. We gave him crayons and let him draw. After a time, he finished and we looked at what he created. His compassionate heart drew a comforting figure for the lonely one sketched in the book so many years prior. This image reminds me of the power of gesture and nonverbal signals...and inspires me every time I look at it. I hope it touches your heart to, and brings comfort to you and those you share it with. --Jenny
