In today's educational environment, thousands of underprivileged children are tragically going without access to basic art & music education, and/or art therapy, even once per week. 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.
