Sixth-grader donates art to at-risk children

Clelsea Phaire of Danbury, Connecticut, started a charity in August, 2019, to doante art kits to children at risk. She started it on her birthday, asking for art supplies instead of gifts. She continued to obtain supplies through her charity's Amazon wishlist.

She has donated art kits to homeless shelters, women's shelters, and schools impacted by gun violence in 12 U.S. states. Since the current pandemic began, she has managed to give away 1,500 art kits. "I feel good inside knowing how happy kids are when they get their art kits," she said. "I have definitely grown as a person because of this."
