Hi everyone! I am Chase, the founder of 10,000 Hands. Welcome to my eighth post. I will be sharing some pictures and will be talking about why I haven't been blogging for a while.
I recently went to my school to pick up my schoolwork from the past year. Looking through it, I saw that along with that, there were also huge envelopes, stuffed with hands! I was so excited!
Days later, I had a meeting with CC and Marissa from Pearl Portland, and let's just say that you should keep your eyes open in august around the Pearl District. There are going to be hand-drawing stations in Pearl stores, like Tom's Shoes, World Foods, Powell's Books, and more!
I finally got around to counting the hands today. Some of the hands are displayed above, and they are only a tiny fraction of the 552 hands in total. All in all, I have collected 1,043 Hands! Thank you so much to everyone who contributed a hand!
Hi everyone! I am Chase, the founder of 10,000 Hands. Welcome to my seventh post. I will be sharing some pictures from Wednesday, when I was at Opal's SYMPOSIUM
As you probably know, this is my new home screen picture. But I want to tell you more about it. In this picture, I am speaking in the Forestry Center to OVER THREE HUNDRED PEOPLE. I know, that's a LOT. But somehow I got up there and talked about 10,000 Hands. AND IT WAS FUN. So fun, I want to do it again! And I probably will. So... LOOK OUT WORLD! WATCH OUT FOR CHASE!
Anyway, be on the lookout for more Symposium Pictures, and if you want to see more like this, follow me on Instagram (I'm 10khands)
Hi everyone! I am Chase, the founder of 10,000 Hands. Welcome to my sixth post, where I will be sharing some pictures from New Seasons, Slabtown.
Here are some pictures I took at the New Seasons, Slabtown Coloring Station, on Saturday. You can find them on my instagram (pixchase) and be on the look out for more!
I was so excited to come to New Seasons on Saturday, especially because in the Cafe, everyone was welcome to create a hand! A coloring station was set up, and already I saw people working on their hands.
It's truly amazing what can happen when we all come together to work on something. The project grows, and becomes even better!
Hi everyone! I am Chase, the founder of 10,000 Hands. Welcome to my fifth post, where I will be talking about opportunities.
We all know that the end of the school year is coming up, and that closes some opportunities for me. Very recently, I have gotten a lot of hands, all from a school in Seattle, OR. I am sad that school will end - because then they cannot help me with 10,000 Hands - but there are still Summer Camps!
There are opportunities everywhere! You just need to look for them. And I guarantee you will find some! And who knows? Maybe 10,000 Hands is an opportunity for you! An opportunity to play a role in diversity and differences, an opportunity to be a part of the 10,000 Hands Community!
Hi everyone! I am Chase, the founder of 10,000 Hands. Welcome to my fourth post, where I will be talking about support.
I am super eager for June, now that New Seasons (Slabtown) is going to help me collect more art! In June, they are going to display some of my collected hands in their art space! And who knows? Maybe yours will be chosen to be included in my display! We're still working the details out though, so stay tuned for more!
I am so excited that New Seasons is going to help my project! I am so thankful for the support. And without support, this project would (literally) not be here. My teacher, my parents, Opal School, and the Portland Children's Museum supported me. Thank you so much!
And support is important for many other communities, too. Take schools for example. Schools need support, and that support is provided by parents, donors, and the government. The students support the school too. Without them, the school wouldn't be around.
So yes, support is very important. It's important to give. So please, support 10,000 Hands today.
Hi everyone! I am Chase, the founder of 10,000 Hands. Welcome to my third post, where I will be talking about my exhibit.
Several days a week, I go to the XOXO Exhibit to sharpen the pencils, renew the paper, and take pictures of all of the great artwork. But that's not all I do. I also see children making their hands, and it makes me feel really good. It makes me feel that my project is appreciated. And it makes me feel like I really can help change the world. With the help of you, of course.
You are making this project grow. Without you, there wouldn't be 10,000 hands.
You are helping me show that we should celebrate our differences, instead of separating ourselves from others because of them.
You are contributing to this project, and by doing that, you are helping me change the world.
Hi everyone! My name is Chase and I am the founder of 10,000 hands. Welcome to my second post.
First of all, I am so excited that we have received over 100 hands! I want to give a huge shout out to the Portland Children's Museum and everyone there who helped put my project into the XOXO exhibit. Without the exhibit, I would just have a big fat zero.
And remember, you don't have to go all the way to Portland to make your hand and put it into the project. Once you create the hand, just take a picture of it, and save it on your device. Then, go into the submit hand part of this website and you can email it to me. Just like that, you're done.
If you contribute a hand, you've lent a hand. So, today, will you lend a hand?
Hi everyone! My name is Chase and I am the founder of 10,000 hands. Welcome to my first post, where I will be talking about why I created 10,000 hands.
I believe that children should have more voice in the community that is the world. And I think that 10,000 hands can give us more voice. It's funny how hundreds of people's/kid's voices can turn into one big united voice, a voice that can even help the world, and help it grow. Hundreds of unique and different voices, all of them special in different ways. That's kind of like what 10,000 hands is. Unique voices. Unique hands. All of them different. And yet they all come together as one.
That was my intention when I created 10,000 hands. To bring people together. So when you submit your hand, you can think of all of this. You can think of what your intention would have been. And remember, this all started when my teacher asked me what I could do to help the world. What would you think of if I asked you that? You could think of anything. So to end my first post, I will leave you with that question.
How can you help the world?
