Press Release: Local Arts Nonprofit Benefits from Jewelry Collaboration
AUSTIN, Texas—Creative Action, the largest arts education nonprofit in Central Texas, today announced it will receive 20 percent of sales from a new jewelry line created by Austin-based actress/activist Danneel Ackles and Limbo Jewelry.
Of the 16,600+ youth the organization serves annually, more than 90 percent receive programming for free. Proceeds from the collection will support Creative Action’s continued social emotional programming, which provides unique arts learning experiences to youth all across Central Texas.
“The arts provide opportunities for young people to discover new ideas while raising awareness of the world around them,” Ackles said. “Having a passion for the arts and being a mother, the work of Creative Action is personal for me so I’m incredibly excited my collaboration with Limbo Jewelry will support their wonderful programming here in Austin.”
Since 2001, Creative Action has supported the academic, social, and emotional development of youth in Central Texas. Through interactive classroom performances, after school arts residencies, and community-based programs, the organization’s team of professional Teaching Artists inspire youth to be creative artists, courageous allies, critical thinkers, and confident leaders in their community.
“As students assume increasing responsibility for the challenges of the 21st century, the best foundation we can give them is creativity, courage, and critical thinking skills to thrive and actively contribute to our society,” said Creative Action executive director Karen LaShelle. “Youth aren’t receiving opportunities to develop holistically in school so that’s the gap we fill. I’m so grateful Limbo Jewelry and Danneel recognize the importance of our work and want to support us through this incredible collaboration.”
