Our Inspiration

“ . . . [Harold] made a balloon and he grabbed onto it. . .” —Crockett Johnson

Imagine all of us could live in the world as Harold does, with confidence, vision, and the skills and creativity to make our dreams come true. The components of his success are few—he needs only an open mind, the tools to draw with, and a conducive environment to carve his own path in the world.

In fact, each of us can live as Harold does, forging original paths according to our own personal inspirations and goals. We need only what Harold needs—a conducive environment, an open mind, and the tools to make things happen. We need. . . The Purple Crayon.
