Why I Give: Eliza, 12-year-old sticker artist

I am a 12-year old digital artist from Middleton, Wisconsin. I love to draw unique zentangled designs and this year I decided I could raise money for charity with my art. I drew a Wisconsin-shaped design and printed waterproof vinyl stickers with the design to sell to raise money for Middleton Outreach Ministry. I raised hundreds of dollars to donate so far and I am going to keep raising money for MOM!

Three generations of our family are involved with MOM.

And I truly believe as we strengthen our communities, we can’t help but bridge the divides of our nation, knitting together what’s torn or broken.
