The Painting On Purpose Project by Katie m. Berggren

The PURPOSE for this project is to give ALL of the proceeds from the sale of an original painting, each year, to a charity that benefits mothers and/or children. This project has allowed me to give $7216 to 9 different organizations, since 2015, see details below.

Painting On Purpose is a project inspired
by my sweet Grandma Neva who turned 92
on the day the first POP painting was released:
February 6, 2015.

My grandma has always lovingly and happily supported me being an artist. She thinks it is so fantastic that someone can make a living creating art. She is, of course, an artist herself, though she wouldn't admit to it. Her medium is a variety of mediums: carved eggs, paintings, clay, acorn crafts... we spent hours around the table together, creating, when I was a child. This project and the ability to support others with my paintings, is in honor of my grandma. Here is a vid I took of my grandma painting Plein Air for the first time, at age 90.

The PURPOSE for this project is to give ALL of the proceeds from the sale of an original painting to a charity that benefits mothers and/or children.

 

In 2015 this project allowed me to give $704 to the NW Mothers Milk Bank in Portland, OR (see the delivery of the $ here).

In 2016, this project allowed me to give $455 to Food for Orphans.

In 2017, this project allowed me to give $995 to Bridge The Gap of Clark County, supporting foster children.

In 2018, this project allowed me to give $715 to Community Roots Collaborative, to help build homes for the homeless.

In 2019, this project allowed me to give $1382 to Pink Lemonade Project, to provide education, support, love and friendship to breast cancer survivors.

In 2020, this project allowed me to give $715 to Open House Ministries, to assist them in walking alongside homeless families as they rebuild their lives.

In 2021, this project allowed me to give $895 to Friends Of The Children - PDX, who are breaking the cycle of poverty and trauma by starting with children.

In 2022, this project allowed me to give $895 to Back To Healing, a non-profit with the mission to improve the quality of life of individuals affected by scoliosis, all over the world. This organization also provides FREE mental health, medical & surgical care for children living with severe scoliosis in South America, Africa and the Caribbean. This organization is close to my heart because my youngest son has scoliosis. He had spinal surgery in February, 2022.

In 2023, this project allowed me to give $460 to Mary's Place in Seattle, WA. Mary's Place has a goal that No Child Sleeps Outside.

In 2024, this project will allow me to give $998 to The Hope Effect. Changing the way the world cares for orphans, because every child deserves a family.

 

Please feel free to suggest charities for the upcoming years of POP (I plan to do this for as long as I possibly can… I see no reason to stop).
