To point out…
Since 1996, Splashes of Hope has provided over 1000s of murals and has made a positive impact at both the community level as well as medical institutions.
SPLASHES OF HOPE INSPIRATION
Subsequently, Splashes of Hope was founded in 1996 by Heather Buggée in reaction to her own experience in typical, dreary medical settings. During her art school years, Heather had a friend who was afflicted with Hodgkin’s Disease being treated in a local hospital. They discussed ways to improve the hospital’s aesthetics. Their idea that positive imagery would improve a patient’s outlook to support the healing process, was the genesis of Splashes of Hope.
Unfortunately, Heather’s friend did not survive his illness, but their dream lives on. Heather and her team of artists and volunteers have made the dream into reality. After 25 years, Splashes of Hope continues its mission to brighten the world with art!
Heather and her team of dedicated artists have been splashing therapeutic art and will continue to build on those successes for years to come.

“Child Life is here to help patients understand their illness, decrease anxiety and cope with being in the hospital. Our specialists seek to make the hospital a “not-so-scary” place for children. They use play, recreation, and music to provide opportunities for our patients to cope with and express their feelings. [Splashes of Hope] offer[s] our therapists the opportunity to engage our patients in conversation and in play. For your support of their efforts, we are most grateful.”
