Have you ever been in a difficult situation due to no fault of your own? This is often the situation in Lawrenceville, GA, Where children from toddlers to teens come in a therapeutic foster care program known as Kids Peace. These kids often have been serious abused or neglected, have behavioral, emotional problems or medical needs. It is not unusual for the only possessions these children have maybe the clothes on their backs. One can only imagine how scared, alone, and uncertain the future may look to these young individuals.

Fortunately there are creative and giving organizations such as the Greater Atlanta Polymer Clay Guild that meets on the fourth Sunday of the month at the First Christian Church of Atlanta in Tucker, GA wanted to share their many talents with those less fortunate. They decorated jars with polymer clay and have put a message of encouragement for each new recipient.

The guild has twenty members and draws not only from the metro area, but has people from neighboring states.

The group is hoping the love went into these jars, and the messages sent will bring some comfort, joy and hope to these children.
