    Supporting one of our most talented friends

    Day 74

    Creativity is Key

    When we first met the young Changemakers at Oruchinga’s Youth Center, we knew this was a special group of people. But someone stood out to us as going above and beyond in working to achieve his dreams, despite the obstacles – and that was Devins.

    Devins is a guitarist, artist, and all around amazing person. He’s also wheelchair bound. But he doesn’t let his physical limitations stop him from growing as a musician – or from being a part of making change in his community.

    We noticed that while Devins created beautiful artwork, he was missing some supplies – he has so many ideas, but limited tools to see them through. So for Day 74, we’re doing something about it.

    We scouted a local art store, and got Devins all the things he needed to keep a steady flow of art supplies – things like colored pencils, paper, watercolor paint, portfolios to hold his art, and more.

    We gathered some of his closest friends from the Youth Center, and surprised Devins at home. As we handed over the materials, he smiled from ear to ear. “This is an amazing gift,” he said.

    He also asked if we wanted to hear some of his music. The answer was a resounding YES, of course!

    It’s not every day that you get to support someone as incredible and inspiring as Devins. But with 365, we can. And this small act of kindness might just be the difference Devins needed to keep going.

    “I’ll remember you always,”
    he said. “Thank you so much.”
