Donald Verger began the Joplin Art Project with the desire to help Joplin’s tornado victims the best way he could—through his art. He didn’t have any idea that he would inspire other artists from around the country to join in his effort and bring peace to affect residents. Children’s book author Crystal Marcos, from Washington State, is donating some of her own books to a Joplin elementary school because of Don’s influence.
With help from Don, Crystal will send 30 copies of her book, BELLYACHE: A Delicious Tale to an elementary classroom.
