During this challenging time, we can still find ways to unite and shine bright for kids with cancer. Learn about this year’s campaign at LetThereBeGOLD.org, and check out our GOLD Guide to find ways to get involved! We hope you will carry the gold spirit with you throughout the month, shine your light, spread the word, and above all show up for kids and let there be GOLD!
Show your support with our limited-edition Let There Be GOLD gear! Our Swag Store has shirts, hats, masks and totes for the whole family. All proceeds will go directly to support the programs of The Faris Foundation.
Art is Hope
Our inaugural juried art competition and exhibition for childhood cancer awareness, curated by Lauren Taylor, received over 60 entries from artists all across the world – from South Korea to Australia to Ireland, and beyond! We invite you to gather your family and come visit our virtual gallery. May you be inspired by the many visions of “art is hope” on display and see why one of the key pillars of The Faris Foundation is the belief that every child with cancer should have access to art as a part of their treatment plan. You can also access an exclusive tour with the exhibition curator, Lauren Taylor. If you would like to support The Faris Foundation and the participating artists by purchasing an artwork, please contact Lauren. Our gratitude to each of the artists for submitting their beautiful pieces and to our judges. Competition winners to be announced in September.
