One of the reasons we started Kalamadoodle was to provide our community with a much needed break from the demands and stresses of their daily lives. To let go of the day's burdens and relive the same endless imaginations we experienced during our childhood; during a time when life was much more simple.
But when a new tragedy seems to occur as often as there are days, it's difficult to act like our world is all smiles and rainbows. We've worked incredibly hard to build an inclusive, positive-minded community, because we have a deep passion and respect for all people, and hope to find ways to bring everyone together.
The image shared above came across my Facebook feed earlier this week. Right away, it made me smile, because I knew what I was seeing. The handdrawn quote on the left, was created by Mary Brownell, a lovely person that I have had the pleasure of meeting through these events. And the drawing on the right, was created by the talented Blake Eason, who I also have had the pleasure of meeting through these events.
These two people, contrasting in gender and color of skin, met each other through Kalamadoodle, and took it upon themselves to create and send a positive message. This is a powerful example of the community we've built, and we hope you'll become a part of it.
