Art for a Cause This Easter
09 April, 2021
This Easter, the children at Edge Early Learning Cannon Hill traded chocolate for art, auctioning off their hand-painted artwork to raise money for the Mater Hospital Foundation – Mater Little Miracles.
On Thursday, April 8, Edge Early Learning Cannon Hill celebrated Easter early with a feel-good afternoon for families, including an artwork auction and raffle to raise proceeds for a cause close to their hearts.
All of the artworks lined up for auction were hand-painted by Cannon Hill’s bright young stars, using their custom-built ateliers; a special resource at the new state-of-the-art centre designed to encourage and harness children’s creativity and self-expression in their early years.
As Easter is a time to bring families together and support foundations that help to grow and develop children – both inside and outside of Edge Early Learning – the Cannon Hill team chose to raise funds for Mater Little Miracles, a charity that has, in recent years, supported families and loved ones of the centre.
Similar to Edge Early Learning’s ethos of giving all young children a positive start to their learning journey, Mater Little Miracles is committed to giving all babies the best possible start to life. All proceeds raised go towards helping Mater’s medical and research teams to help save the lives of Mater’s tiniest and most vulnerable patients.
The families of Edge Early Learning Cannon Hill were touched to be able to support a cause close to their hearts and felt proud see the children’s artwork exhibited in their pop-up gallery, with artwork being snapped up quickly at the auction. Overall they raised $1000 for Mater Little Miracles which will go towards vital equipment needed to provide support to seriously ill or premmie babies.
