At Drawn from Valor, every project we make contains the powerful message that you are not alone. It's a message of hope and connection. In today's world, we know it's a message that's even more important, especially in a time where socially distancing is the new normal. We stand for hope and against hate. We stand for connecting and collaborating. It's why we've made "Connecting," this month's focus at DfV.

Last month, we gave you a sneak peek of our updated website and we're pleased to announce it's live! You can find all new resources and updates to our projects there - including new activity pages, blog posts, and resources.

This month, we spoke with Digital Art Director Taryn Cozzy about what drew her to DfV, and you'll learn more in her answers below.

And, we asked one of our SMEs about finding ways to help your kids connect, even as some kids begin to return to school. They shared with us that although social time is a key outlet for kids, it may continue to look different for a while. They recommend having virtual playdates or even old-fashioned phone calls with friends.

We continue to create new pathways to connection at DfV, like this newsletter and some of our upcoming projects. We're so thankful we get to connect with you!
