Welcome back to Week 5 of our 45 Days of Giving! See Days 21 – 25 below!
In the fall of 2018, Nossi College of Art is celebrating our 45th anniversary, and we decided to do 45 acts of creative kindness for local classrooms, non-profits, church groups. Nashville and the surrounding communities have been supportive of Nossi College and the impact we wanted to make on this area, so in return, we wanted to feature 45 acts of thankfulness.
If you haven’t already, check out our previous blog for Week 4 to get all the action!
To show our support, we are helping these Nashville filmmakers by sponsoring their startup costs and continuing to provide a workspace to broadcast their interesting, eclectic topics.
Their podcast goal is inclusive and beautiful.
“Promote listening and learning through discussion. It’s not about debating if certain ideas are better or worse, but instead, forming healthier and more nuanced opinions about the world around us through listening.”

Thank you to everyone that was involved in the complete rebranding of Nashville Wildlife Conservation Center. We are so impressed by the professional attitude our students displayed during the process and especially, the final outcome of this campaign!
The Nashville Wildlife Conservation is dedicated to bringing environmental education into lower income areas. Those areas tend to lack the resources to get out to our beautiful parks and reap the benefit of nature. NWCC helps provide high-quality science education, including STEM and NGSS standards, wildlife encounters and outdoor adventures to introduce students to their backyard neighbors.

Although Litton is fully stocked with energy and an amazing STEM program, we believe there’s always a need for more art! So, to support Litton’s upcoming school year we helped by donating markers, pencils, notebooks, paper and mason jars.
