Our mission is to help others using our creativity and art. We educate, inspire dreams, foster love and encourage growth mentally and physically.
“No matter where we are in the world we can be a positive influence, on children and on those around us, but we have to start with ourselves.”
A NOTE FROM THE FOUNDER:
“My name is (Mailyne). I started Dream.Love.Grow in 2008 as a way to use my art to help others. I would take a portion of the sales I made from my artwork and use it to put gifts together for the homeless, as well as donate to charities like Red Cross – Circle of Humanity, Plan and OxFam Unwrapped.
In 2010 I had the opportunity to move back home to the Philippines where I worked my dream job, but yet I felt like something was missing. Then one day our Director of Photography, Rick Robinson, took us out for the weekend to film and we ended up visiting the Mandaue Landfill. That day I felt a strong desire to give back not only to the country I came from, but to anyone that was in need.”
Through support from friends, family members, co-workers and a few creative individuals (including dentists and doctors), Dream.Love.Grow has been able to focus on giving back to the community through creative arts and education, as well as medical/dental services both in Canada and the Philippines.
The communities that take precedence are families with children lacking the means to sufficient care, those considered low-income, those that have been neglected, abused or without support and those that are living in remote and hazardous areas.
Dream.Love.Grow utilizes Mailyne’s art work and crafts (and others like her husband, Nathen Henry) to fundraise and help other causes, charities and non-profits. We believe strongly in helping others and if we believe in your cause, we’ll help in any way we can.
Dream.Love.Grow is also aware of the impact we humans have on our planet, so we continuously try to seek ways to implement strategies such as using recycled material and second hand items. That way we can help reduce our carbon footprint and educate future generations to do the same.
