What is our objective?
Our Artlits provide passive therapeutic benefits that can improve the quality of life for nursing home residents. By affecting their overall well-being by just having an Artlit in their space.
ARTFULLY GIVING was founded on a simple idea – that art can change the world. But at ARTFULLY GIVING, we know that it is not just seeing great art that changes lives. In our case, the very platform we use to share and sell art represents a new way to promote positive social and environmental good.
ARTFULLY GIVING is a purpose built community of artists, nonprofits, individuals, and organizations all working together to make the planet cleaner, our communities healthier, and the world a better place to be through buying, selling, and sharing beautiful works of art. Trust and transparency make up our core values and giving back in a sustainable way is our mission.
Founder John Harrison has been a travel and nature photographer for two decades. His work has been featured in National Geographic, showcased on network television, and used for visual reference in research and documentaries. ARTFULLY GIVING is a movement redefining corporate social responsibility by shifting focus away from shareholder profits that benefit only a few to a community of stakeholders spanning many socially mindful organizations and individuals. John founded Artfully Giving to serve as his legacy which combines passion with purpose.
It is essential to show the importance of the generation of elderly people by lifting their spirits and providing vibrant illuminated photography in their space.
