LilySarahGrace was founded by Matthew Badger and his partner, Abby Ballin, after his daughters – Lily, Sarah and Grace – tragically passed away in a fire on Christmas of 2011. Lily was 9 and twins Sarah and Grace were 7. Badger witness firsthand how vital the arts in school were for his girls because of their dyslexia. Art was their passion. Since April 2012, LSG has given $1 million in supplies to teachers in underfunded public elementary schools to teach their curriculum through the arts. Because of LilySarahGrace, 140,000 children have learned through this method in classrooms all over America. To learn more, visit www.lilysarahgrace.org.
