Have Your Little Monster Draw a Monster at the DC Public Library

Art Contest to Benefit Jolie-Pitt Founded Foundation

As kids across the city look for Halloween celebrations and activities, the DC Public Library offers an art activity with a twist. Drawing a picture of a monster at the DC Public Library will raise money for charity and help support needy children around the world. 
The “Make My Own Monster Halloween Contest” is a partnership between Global Action for Children, a nonpartisan coalition organization founded by the Jolie-Pitt Foundation and the North American Bear Company. Children under 12 years of age who attend Halloween activities at the DC Public Library will draw monsters on an entry form. These drawings will be collected by Global Action for Children. For each monster drawing that is submitted, the North American Bear Company will donate $1.00 to Global Action for Children.
The grand-prize winner of the contest will have their drawing turned into a one-of-a-kind huggable toy by the monster makers at the North American Bear Company. 
Global Action for Children is focused on increasing funding by $2.5 billion per year by the US government for programs that support orphans and vulnerable children and provide free primary school education in developing countries.
