My 11 year old 6th grade daughter who rides her bike to the school bus stop everyday is practicing for an art audition for a closer by school with a great visual art program. She is a "local" known artist in her school & in the family. I've hit hard times and spend all my free time ubering to make bill money, while my Husband is just about to start as a CDL A truck driver otr 3 weeks out the month. I am a school bus driver & hourly, with no paid holidays or vacation breaks. I am also a college student, so our situation is temporary, but it's been rough.
I was only able to gift my daughter make-up samples & candy for Christmas this year. I told her it would be a rough Christmas for just this time, & she is very understanding.
If you don't mind helping out with some art materials for her to practice & for her audition supplies she would put it to great use!
