BoulderSharesfounder and daughter stand in front of a banner of artwork created by Colorado students to cheer up earthquake survivors in the Medishare field hospital in Port-au-Prince. The patients loved the brightly colored pictures and words of encouragement as much as the children in Colorado loved creating them. The banner hung in the adult tent until Medishare moved to its current home at l'hopital Bernard Maves. Artwork from some of the haitian children now resides in Boulder, Colorado.
"Artistic expression is helpful in dissipating an acute stress response….
it soothes the psyche and the soul."
