After following Deb Drager's artistry for many years, I finally had the pleasure of meeting her at a Faux Retreat she was teaching at in 2012. It was during the retreat when Deb told me about a foundation that she and Lynn Bandyk founded to, "Host fund-raising events, product Art-ful products and merchandise and provide educational experiences that will enable us to donate to ongoing research for cancer cure, reach out to families in "the fight' with gifts, creative workshops as well as support."
In Deb's words, "The vision for Caring With Colors is to honor and celebrate our creative lives and survivorship by establishing a network of like-minded artisans to join in our journey to GIVE back."
