Lena Dunham, Jennifer Aniston, and Naomi Watts want you to color outside the lines. They, along with other actors, musicians, and artists, have created drawings for LilySarahGrace, an organization that provides supplies to teachers in underfunded schools to help them to teach their curriculum through art.
The fund was founded by Matthew Badger and his partner Abby Ballin after Badger’s three daughters, Lily, Sarah, and Grace, were tragically killed in a fire on Christmas 2011. All three of his daughters had dyslexia, and Badger saw first hand how art classes helped his daughters learn. He has since allocated millions of dollars in supplies to teachers around the country so that they can help their students learn outside of the lines through art.
Starting today, you can donate to Badger’s new Kickstarter campaign, which will raise money to publish a book featuring the drawings of Aniston, Dunham, Watts, as well as Jessica Biel, Diane von Furstenberg, Elle Fanning, and many other celebs (Dunham’s and Watts’ are pictured above). The book, which will be titled You Can’t Memorize This, aims to show that all creative types think outside the box. All proceeds from the book will go to funding these art-driven curriculums in schools.
