Keep up the AMAZING work – you are saving lives and making the world a better place!

This is such an important, vital organization in our community. You have my total support.

It is so rewarding to see the work that your Studio is doing for those on the path to Recovery. It is great to see how you embody this principle in the many activities that you promote and are engaged in.

Thank you for the great work you do in promoting recovery, creative expression and sharing the use of art as medicine.

I’m praying that you reach your fundraising goal of $150,000 so that Artbeat Studio can continue its excellent and much needed work.

Thank you for your work and good luck, you have my prayers

Creativity and imagination can be overlooked in the busy world we live in; it is wonderful to see how powerful and life changing these ‘taken for granted’ traits can be.

I can’t imagine Winnipeg without Artbeat Studio. Hope this little bit helps.

The neighborhood wouldn’t be the same without Artbeat. Hope this helps.

Thank you for making such a difference in people’s lives

I hope and believe you will reach your target. Your compassion and knowledge helped our family and was instrumental in helping our son find his artistic soul in the depths of depression and anxiety. Thank you for your work, your courage and your vision.

I hope your crowd fundraising is successful. You are doing good work!

Really hope we can get all the way there! Good luck people!

Best of luck at reaching your goal! We’re rooting for you!

Thank you for making such a difference in people’s lives

Many thanks for all that you do. Hoping that you get the financial support that you need to be able to keep your doors open.

I totally believe in the work you are doing at Artbeat and think of you often.

Best of luck Artbeat! Here’s hoping you blow way past $150K in the next few months

Came around on a First Friday. Was very impressed with what you do. Tara Davis is an alumni. She is now a successful entrepreneur. Congrats to Artbeat and Tara Davis.

Keep up the great work guys! I am a true believer that any form of art is essential to healing and I am first hand experience! Artbeat MUST stay open and help build a strong society and encourage healing in a creative manner. I wish you best of luck.

Artbeat is integral to the mental health of its participants. Good luck on the fundraising.

Keep up the important work and contributions you provide in the area of mental health.

Unconditional love really exists in each of us, it’s part of our deep inner being. It permeates everything around us. Artbeat is a beautiful expression of it. I believe in you and your work. It is need in our world. Miigwech for who you are & what you do.

I know the difference your organization makes to many people I have met over the years. Please know I would give 1000xs this much if I had it. You have my support and have had my support since the beginning. Stay strong, carry on.
