Artist Meg Krakowiak Gives Her Art and Her Heart to All Star Children’s Foundation

The Giving Coast

SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY AUG 12, 2020

“You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think and loved more than you know.” This beloved quote from A.A. Milne is captured on a trio of canvases gracing the walls of the waiting area in All Star Children’s Foundation’s Children’s Center.  The Sarasota-based artist who donated the work is Meg Krakowiak. She met All Star founder Graci McGillicuddy over a year ago and was immediately captivated by her vision and mission for All Star Children's Foundation. Krakowiak decided on the spot to make it her personal charity.

“Graci’s passion for kids comes from her heart. Every square inch of the campus contributes to their well-being, from the careful design of the homes to the vegetable garden and more,” she says. “All Star’s model lifts them up—and it truly makes a difference.” According to Krakowiak, the quote she celebrates in her triptych is all about self-worth. “Every child has incredible value,” she says. “This quote speaks a truth over every child, whether they believe it now or not. I think Milne’s words offer a beautiful affirmation of their true potential.
