DonnaBellas Angels is a 501(c)3 non-profit that provides inspirational healing themed art to the public for mental health wellness. The art incorporates the uplifting colors and themes such as inspirational words, hearts, butterflies, and angels. The purpose of the art is to provide hope and encouragement to recipients. DonnaBellas Angels’ motto is, “Medicine Heals the Body, Art Heals the Soul”. Laurel Latto, DonnaBellas Angels’ artist and founder, came to the idea of creating the non-profit after working in cancer research and appreciating the importance of emotional wellness in coping with stress, anxiety, and depression that may accompany an illness.
The art is made available to the public in multiple ways. Original paintings are provided on loan to medical clinics or wellness centers. Art prints and postcards are given away to the public for personal use. Distribution of prints is mainly through medical clinics and non-profit groups with some distribution directly to the public.
The public can also request limited art royalty use. Recipients sign a contract describing how they will use the art. Examples include using it on a wellness cards, cancer boutique mailers, fundraiser walk t-shirts, banners, and local clinic posters. Group locally fund printing costs.
Shohini Ghosh, World Renown Sculptor, created “My Angel” sculptures made in soft stress foam. The non-profit has also paired with AwarenessGallery.com to provide inspirational awareness ribbons.
