Gabby Murillo wants your help in creating something beautiful. The teen, who is suffering from paralysis after an accident, plans to partner with the community in her next multimedia project, “Paint Happy.”
On Wednesday Aug. 12 from 3-6 p.m., stop by Bailey Middle School to pick up your canvas swatch with colors and/or designs that make you happy, then return the swatch to Gabby by Aug. 19 at 6 p.m.
Participation doubles as support for Gabby’s future projects, as we encourage those taking part to donate a dollar when returning your swatch. Your swatch automatically enters you in the drawing for Gabby’s next giveaway, and every dollar donated will be counted as another submission.
The hope for this project is that it gains notoriety and perhaps makes it into the public eye, garnering participation from celebrities as well. However we can’t do that without first engaging the community. Please reach out to Gabby on Instagram with any questions. Masks and gloves will be worn distributing and collecting swatches.
