Arte Di Bvlgari Supports Houston Event To Help Children In Need

The Houston Children’s Museum is hosting an exhibition of the artwork of 600 local children. It opened on World Children’s Day, November 20, and will run through mid-December. The event is a collaboration of various organizations, including Save the Children, Bvlgari North America, Young Audiences Houston and the Children’s Museum, and it comprises the work of students from the Greater Houston and Beaumont areas.

The children penned their hopes for the world and wishes for the future and placed them in recycled plastic bottles they decorated as part of an Arte di Bvlgari program activity. These bottle art pieces were then sent to a Houston artist, who assembled them into the “Wish in a Bottle” display.

The Arte di Bvlgari program is hosted in two local school districts in conjunction with Save the Children’s existing literacy, math and enrichment programs. It is made possible by Bvlgari North America, and it offers children the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of arts over the course of the school year, including dance, sculpture, painting, visual arts and more.

“Today’s children are tomorrow’s artists, engineers, teachers and business leaders, and we are so excited to collaborate with Bvlgari North America, Children’s Museum Houston and Young Audiences of Houston to be able to engage children in artistic expression and shine a spotlight on their hopes for the future on this World’s Children’s Day,” said Betsy Zorio, Save the Children’s Vice President of U.S. Programs. “Arts programs for children can have a significant, positive impact on their development, yet far too many children have limited exposure to the arts. We are so grateful to our incredible partner Bvlgari for enabling us to continue to provide a robust, youth-centered arts curriculum in our after-school programming.”

It has been proven that community-based arts programs help children develop self-confidence, self-efficacy and self-awareness. And Arte di Bvlgari is unique in its delivery, as it engages local artists and experts from the community in which the children live. Since the beginning of the Italian brand’s partnership with Save the Children in 2009, sales from Bvlgari’s iconic Save the Children jewelry collection has supported children through education and enrichment, emergency response, youth empowerment and poverty reduction programs.

“We are proud to continue our commitment to our now 12-year partnership with Save the Children with ‘Wish in a Bottle,’ a project which aims to provide positive impact to students in underserved communities,” said Daniel Paltridge, President of Bvlgari North America. “Particularly during the pandemic, far too many at-risk children were denied access to the arts, making Bvlgari’s mission of supporting childhood development through art education more important than ever. Having raised more than $100 million thus far to benefit more than 2 million children around the world, we look forward to continuing our efforts to create positive social change in communities most in need through our partnership with Save the Children.”

The unveiling of the installation and the World Children’s Day celebration welcomed honored guests from Save the Children, Bvlgari North America, the Children’s Museum Houston and Young Audiences Houston, as well as some of the children who contributed their art to the Arte di Bvlgari activity.
