Canvas for Hope
A mother of four and proud grandmother of three, Elena Makievsky immigrated from the Ukraine to the United States at the age of 19 to start a new life here.
In 2014, Elena started Canvas for Hope, a 501c3, with a mission to bring smiles to the children and their families affected by childhood cancer through art. Working closely with Children’s Hospital of Atlanta, her 200 Painting Challenge was born. Now in 2019, and with over 1040 paintings under her belt, she is determined to continue spreading joy through art by painting these brave warrior's favorite characters.

We have created a page to spread awareness for these children. We make & give out thousands of ribbons world-wide & ask others to post photos to social media using "#ShowMeYourGold". Join our movement today!! Find us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook!
