Merry everything & happy always ❄️

Updated: Mar 25, 2020

As the year draws to a close, we have so much for which to be thankful. 2019 has been a year of growth and excitement at Drawn from Valor. Because of you, we've begun work on our animated short Oinya's Prize, and continue to develop the stories of The Tales of the Golden Acorn. We have reached thousands of people with messages of hope and healing, letting them know that they're not alone. Moving into the New Year, we want to take a moment to say "thank you" for being here for the journey. Thank you for believing in us and for your support. Wishing you a holiday season filled with love, family, and warmth, no matter how or what you choose to celebrate.

Gifts of the Season Thanks to you, we've been able to reach more than 750,000 people on social media creating conversations around animation, parenting, mental and physical health, PTSD and trauma, and healing. We've created hundreds of seconds of animation, that will bring messages of hope and healing to people around the world. This is all possible because you 💜. As we near the end of 2019, the entire Drawn from Valor team is working round the clock to help us reach our fundraising goals. Would you be willing to make a special year-end donation of $50, $100 or whatever you can afford to help?
