What started with sharpies, paint pens, and white flags from the hardware store quickly became a movement to spread kindness and positivity.
In March 2020, Callie (then 10 years old!) wanted to spread kindness and positivity to others during the COVID-19 pandemic. She began decorating hundreds of blank white flags with drawings and inspirational messages to give frontline and essential workers, local businesses, non-profit organizations, and community volunteers in and around Morristown, New Jersey.
Then something happened. The flags were so uplifting that it was time to make a more permanent version of the art, for the intended heroes, but also their fans!
Enter our beautiful, ready-to-hang prints that come in various sizes. We partnered with Mixtiles -- amazing framed photo tiles you can hang anywhere without damaging your walls -- to print photographs of Callie's art. All 100% proceeds go directly to charity!
We're thrilled to report that since March 2020, Callie has raised over $11,000 for local charities.
$1,000 for HelpMorrisNow Organization to help feed her community during the COVID lock down.
$2,500 for Good Grief Organization (Morristown, N.J) to help grieving families cope with loss.
$2500 for St. Hubert's Animal Welfare (Madison, N.J) to help homeless and abused animals.
$5,000 for Jersey Pits Rescue to help homeless and abused Pitbulls find their forever home.
Callie will continue to raise money to support various nonprofit organizations through her art.
So grab a cup of tea and peruse Callie's art, or start thinking of a custom design you'd love to add to your collection!

What They're Saying
Bought two Mixtiles and will be back for more. I just am ceaselessly amazed by Callie’s creativity and her family’s support of her project — and grateful that they made these prints available to all of us. I loved seeing the flags around Morristown at the start of the pandemic and am thrilled to have them in my home.
Great cause and wonderful people!

So cute! Beautiful addition to our home!
