Product Overview

About the Artwork:
All the Red and Black is how it felt when no one wanted me in their family. The rainbow is when my new family came, found me, and adopted me.

About The Artist:
I love to sing, dance, and make people smile. My experience in foster care was awful and hurtful. I cried every day, wishing someone would want me. I'm participating in sharing my story with the world.


Each Fostering Creativity shirt has been inspired by youth art submission and creatively adapted for t-shirt presentation. To view the originals and hear from the artists community members can attend the Showcase Event on September 28th, 2023.

Fostering Creativity is a public awareness campaign that seeks to empower those who have experienced foster care to share their perspective with the world. It is the voices of those who have actually experienced foster care and adoption that are the most important. Fostering Creativity aims to empower these youth to raise awareness about foster care through the power of art.

Right now, there are more than 8,000 youth in Massachusetts foster care and hundreds of them have no permanent family. Their voices are often unheard. We want to change that. We hope you will join us #SpeakUpforAdoption by supporting the creativity and unique voices of these kids.


T-shirts are a dime a dozen, but this one stands out from the pack. It’s super soft, breathable, and has just the right amount of stretch. Need we say more?
