Dedicated teachers, therapists, and community organizations worldwide face significant constraints due to lack of funding for basic art & music materials. Dreaming Zebra's mission is to deliver supplies to young artists in need, with an emphasis on serving diverse populations of vulnerable youth in underserved communities. All children deserve to pursue their creative dreams. Out of thousands of requests from our waiting list, these are the supplies that young artists need the most. Please consider donating today.

Simple Materials Can Inspire Kids
Many individuals and business owners are surprised to learn that basic secondhand materials can be recycled to create an art class for children in need.
We welcome donations of any art supply that can be used creatively, whether new or used, from recycled items to glitter, paints, sewing materials, pottery wheels and kilns, craft items, photography, theatrical supplies and more. Our Art Supply Wish List above is kept current and lists the specific items that students are in significant need of today.
Musical Instruments & Restorative Repairs
We welcome donations of musical instruments and accessories, including band instruments, keyboards, drum sets, and guitars, etc. for underprivileged young musicians. Dreaming Zebra also accepts instruments in need of gentle repairs, and partners with community sponsors and volunteers to bring them "back to life" in the hands of local students.
