Hi Everyone,
“BOUNTIFUL BASKETS for Seniors” is our most recent social isolation compassion project. We plan to fill 100 colorful baskets with an Art Journal project, some Essential and Fun items along with our beautiful handmade paper spring flowers (See attached list of needed supplies). On April 3rd, we will deliver the BOUNTIFUL BASKETS for Easter to 100 isolated residents at the Oasis Pavilion Nursing and Rehab long-term care facility in Casa Grande. If you would like to participate in our BOUNTIFUL BASKETS social isolation compassion project here is how you can contribute:
1. Help us purchase needed supplies to create BOUNTIFUL BASKETS for the isolated seniors. If you purchase an item on our ArtMobile’s Amazon Charity List, it will be mailed directly to us. Here is the link: https://smile.amazon.com/hz/charitylist/ls/OZ6PZCY8JIBH

2. Drop off the needed art supplies and essential items on the attached list to ArtMobile Creative Center on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays 11:30-1:30 at 422 N. Florence St., Suite 1. We are located right next door to the Paramount Theatre.

So many of the things that we love have been stripped away by the pandemic.
But there is a couple in Burlington, Washington that said, "Nothing is going to stop us from getting dressed up and doing what we love." NOTHING was going to stop them from dancing.
Jerry and Jeri make themselves happy, and they make other people happy too.
They are my Heroes.

Death with Dignity? Medical Aid In Dying? What are your end-of-life options if you live in Arizona? Learn more on Sunday, Nov. 1st, at 2pm when Arizona End of Life Options presents a discussion with Dr. Tom Fitch. Register today for this free virtual presentation. https://azendoflifeoptions.org/free-webinars-on-end-of-life-options/ Your Zoom link will be emailed to you.

He has joined Arizona End-of-Life Options to advocate for a Medical Aid in Dying (MAID) law in Arizona.
