Advertising Agency Launches Unique Web site 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.”

To view some of these truly amazing pieces of art and to create your very own Qee online, log onto www.collemcvoy.com or www.artisagift.com.
