The Pink Pad Project


The Pink Pad Project

Strathmore® is proud to partner with In My Father’s Eyes for the introduction of two limited-time pads featuring bright pink covers rolling out this fall. 

In My Father’s Eyes is a non-profit organization that works with families of children who are fighting a life threatening disease or who have lost their battle to provide a hand-drawn portrait at no cost to the family. The goal is to help these children focus on their beauty instead of their illness and provide their families with a lifetime of memories through an heirloom portrait.

Each portrait takes approximately 30 to 40 hours to complete. Artists lend their time, but you can give the gift of hope.
