Crayon Collection partnered with the LA Sparks for the 1 Million Crayon Drive and Exhibit on August 11, 2018. The LA Sparks Kids Performed and Sparky greeted all the guests! Leading up to the event, the Sparks sent out an email to all their fans about our 1 Million Crayon Drive-our efforts which started on Earth Day to collect and redistribute 1 Million Crayons so they end up in the hands of children rather than landfills. Before exhibit day, we were invited to a LA Sparks game to have a Crayon Collection Table and Crayon Donation Drive.
On July 9, 2018 we went to the LA Sparks Game at the Staples Center. Crayon Collection hosted a charity table where game attendees could donate crayons, ask questions, and learn about Crayon Collection. We loved seeing so many kids from elementary and middle school basketball teams in the bleachers! Before every fan walked into the game they got their tickets scanned and were greeted by us, Crayon Collection.
Our colorful booth got everyone’s attention and we got the chance to spread the word to many families about our charity! We gave out our Crayon Collection Postcards and Crayon Collection Pins. Everyone loved wearing the Crayon Collection Pins as they entered to watch the game. Even though we knew the Sparks fans all got an email about the 1 Million Crayon Drive, we were overwhelmed by all the crayon donations! We did not expect SO much generosity. The Sparks fans donated 8,988 crayons! Go Sparks!
