We Are A Non-Profit That Brings Hope and Joy to Hospitalized Children All Over The World
Volunteers create handicraft donations which we distribute to hospitalized children all over the world. The creator as well as the recipient child, even though they will never meet, will share a special bond of compassion, love, confidence, courage and optimism that crosses all cultures and countries.

The Story Behind Our Non‑Profit
Arts For Little Hearts was started by 2 brothers, Tyler and Colin Michna when they were 14 and 12 years old. During Tyler’s hospitalization, both brothers witnessed first-hand the fear, loneliness and sorrow that hospitalized children experience. When children receive handicraft donations, they feel hope and joy in accepting them, knowing that a stranger on the other side of the world believes in them.
