'Tis the season for thanks 💜

The Tuesday after Thanksgiving has come to be known as "Giving Tuesday." Celebrated this year on Tuesday, December 3, it is a global generosity movement that unleashes the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and their world. Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

At Drawn from Valor, we believe that art has the power to change the world. For that reason we'll be celebrating our version of Giving Tuesday which we're calling "GIFfing Tuesday." It's a time for us to spread joy and gratitude to you and those who are following along on our journey to share a message of hope through animation. Follow along on your favorite social media platform, and feel the love 💜.

The Holidays are Upon Us

The holidays are typically portrayed as full of joy and celebration. But for many people, this can be a particularly challenging time of year. If your holiday season feels less than merry, we want you to know that you’re not alone. We'd like to share a few resources that we hope will help you to manage the stress of the holiday season and maybe even find a little bit of joy.
