WE fans, you’ll love this book store: Apostrophe Books, 4712 E 2nd St, Long Beach CA.
Artwork for Education is proud to announce that local Belmont Shore book store Apostrophe Books has just begun to stock our greeting cards!
Belmont Shore is a tight knit community, and 2nd Street merchants are especially supportive of local causes. It was actually Meara, the nine year old daughter of Artwork for Education’s Sales Manager Lisa Hain, who convinced them to carry our cards!
Meara lives close to the book store and when she does well in school, Lisa takes her in and lets her pick out a book. Meara was browsing in the store one day, and asked the owner, “Why don’t you carry my mom’s cards? They give money back to schools!”
That comment sparked a conversation with Lisa, and the store now has a prominent display featuring Artwork for Education cards, that benefit many local schools from Long Beach, Seal Beach and Huntington Beach.
Apostrophe went one step further, and offered a 20% discount to all schools lucky enough to have had a card chosen for their racks – 12 local schools in all! Each card purchase will make $0.50 for the artist’s school.
Apostrophe Books carries a wide selection of books, cards, journals, stationery and gift wrap. Check them out if you are in the area, and while you are there, buy a greeting card to support a school!

I hope you’ve seen our video blog with Jeremy. Jeremy created the Cake-a-saurus -the cake-eating stegosaurus who helps you celebrate your birthday. Jeremy’s dad works for Game Show Network’s Oodles. GSN Radio hosts Bob Goen (remember him from Entertainment Tonight?) and Marianne Curan (his wife… and an actress) discussed the impact of Worldwise Education’s Artwork for Education program in helping keep arts alive in schools. We’re thrilled that the GSN Radio audience now knows about us! Watch the video and then check out the GSN games.

Toni Childs is using her talents to help others see the power in their true beauty. Cause: You’re Beautiful is a simple, but powerful song to send a message to the women of the world to intently listen to their heart’s desire and take action on their calling. To find our inner desire, it’s not only essential to listen to our own heart, but also to learn from the experience and passion of others.
Toni asked twenty-five inspirational leaders who risked their personal happiness for a cause worth more to join in her mission. Toni selected WE CEO Charles Paul as one of those inspirational leaders. With a desire to provide teachers with the critical resources they need to engage their students, Charles gave up a life of leisure sailing the seas to start Worldwise Education.
Each of the 25 leaders will post columns on the site to inspire others to take their own risks to live an intentional life. As you’ll read in Charles’s first column, How to Change the World in 10 Easy Steps, Charles’s positive enthusiasm is what got WE off the ground. However, it’s YOU, our Worldwise community, who is helping it grow and flourish. Get involved and we promise you, together WE can make a difference in the lives of the next generation.

Jeremy was thrilled to learn that his Cake-a-saurus, the cake-eating Stegosaurus, could be sent to anyone in the country, even around the world! Artwork for Education is perfect for everyone: kids love to play and create new things, schools love that it’s a healthy fundraiser, and parents feel pride from their kid’s creative accomplishments. Although kids are happy to learn that the cards make their school money, what makes them really excited is being able to creatively express their passions.
