Welcome to GivixKidz.com
This project is inspired by Emery! Unfortunately I never got to meet her. In 2018 I was the face painter at her birthday party, there was Disney princesses, games music even a pony.... all except little Emery Smith. She lost her battle with Neuroblastoma in 2017 She was diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma at only two years old. As a father of six this hit so close to home, my youngest looked a lot like her and was the same age. I saw a lot pictures of her and saw haunting similarities in the two girls. We had recently had to shave her head because of a gum incident and to top it all off one picture of Emery with her little shaved head was wearing a Disney princess dress, the same one my daughter had. Every since I meet Emery's family and got to paint all her little friends faces, I have had a new appreciation for life and tell my kids I love them and hug them so much more often and every moment seems so much more precious.
If you or some one you know has lost a child before they got to their 18th birthday I gladly offer a free custom portrait. All you have to do is become a member on this site, fill out the form below. I plan to start a new one when the current one is finished, the first one being of Emery. If I get more than one submission at a time I will do a drawing on Instagram Live to determine who is next.
Here's how it works:
I love to draw people and I've spent years drawing for free. Now that I'm setting up everything to be able to make money doing custom portraits I want to be able to Givix Back, and as a father this seems to me to be the best way that I can do that.
