with Non-profit Partner
Colle+McVoy has launched a web
site that allows users to create their own designs on a popular miniature
Qee figurine, while also learning about programs that help abused and at-risk
children heal through art.
We believe children and adults
can benefit from the healing affects of art, said Christine Fruechte,
president of Colle+McVoy. It is powerful to see how the creative imaginations
of children come to life, build self esteem, and have a profound impact
on our staff.
When I worked with these children,
I had no idea how much they would touch my heart, said Katy Viehman, account
executive at Colle+McVoy. Being able to spend time with these amazing
young artists was very special to me.
The generosity and creativity
shown by Colle+McVoy has been overwhelming, said Michelle Silverman, executive
director of Free Arts Minnesota. This most recent effort brightened the
day for thousands of children living in very tough situations. This project
has taken on a life of its own ever since.

amazing pieces of art and to create your very own Qee online, log onto
