Next week marks the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. What better way to kick of our week long celebration than by introducing mother, artist and philanthropist Rebecca Peragine of Children Inspire Design. Whether it’s her use of recyclable mediums, the contemporary ethnic flair of her artistry or the fact that her latest line comes in eight different languages, Rebecca shares a message you will want to teach your children.
This season’s collection launches with a line of stylish, culturally diverse and eco-friendly wall art, wall cards and posters full of whimsy and designed to help children learn about our beautiful world. With a message of compassion, Children Inspire Design believes that if we teach the importance of global responsibility at a young age, carrying that responsibility into the future will be second nature for our children.
I particularly appreciate how Rebecca acknowledges various languages in her art. My children’s ethnic makeup consists of Chinese, Irish, Norwegian, Russian, Polish, Austrian and a sprinkle of French. Throw in both Jewish and Catholic faiths and they are simply kids growing up in the 21st century. As a parent it is important that I pass along my appreciation for the various culturals around the globe and those that make up our family’s heritage. Learning to count to 10 in Chinese is a fun way to start! Children Inspire Design wall cards are the perfect combination of art and education. They make for a wonderful border around a child’s room or grouping just above the bed for a burst of design (and safety).
Available in English, Spanish, Chinese, Italian, French, German, Hebrew and Swedish, your child will be worldly and chic-que maravilloso! Use coupon code “CID20” to recieve 20% off your next order. And don’t forget to take a brief moment to sign up for the Children Inspire Design newsletter to receive a free PDF art print out from Rebecca!
