Testimonials for The Spread Your Wings Project

“Painting that feather with Elizabeth made Liv feel like a child again – not a patient in a hospital. That experience was the ONE THING that stood out for Liv – it had such an impact on her. She couldn’t wait to see her “feather” in the finished piece of art!”

From Jennifer Henke, mom to Liv, age 8

“It is wonderful when two missions come together. We were so fortunate to be connected with Elizabeth, Bobby and Spread Your Wings and could not be any happier with the outcome. From concept, through planning and the painting event and then the final unveiling, this project was a joy to be part of. The Wings show the beauty that humanity can create when it comes together.”

From Ian Hockley, Founder, Dylan’s Wings of Change/Wingman

“Elizabeth’s idea to create a larger than life, unique pair of Angel Wings seemed unimaginable, but we knew in our hearts she would pull it off! Her passion and professionalism were unparalleled, providing the Dell Staff with complete confidence in “Spread Your Wings” from start to finish. The magic that took place at the event not only inspired another round of donations, but the final Angel Wings were purchased and donated back to the hospital, where they will memorialize every child as well as the event, while continuing to inspire everyone who passes through Dell’s corridors.”

From Suellen Brown, Dell Children’s Trust Foundation Coordinator

“Elizabeth Bryan-Jacobs brought Creative Awakenings to my top clients as an appreciation event, and they loved it! Not only was it a differentiator, it was a joyful, wellness experience that they talked about long after it was over. The art they made was beautiful, and it was wonderful to share this kind of special, intimate experience with them.”

From Candace Bahr, former owner, Bahr Investment Group, Investment News 2015 “Women to Watch,” co-founder WIFE.org and Second Saturday Divorce Workshops

“Spread Your Wings” was an amazing event! The power of art to bring people together, as a calming, healing piece, is truly unbelievable. The final product that Elizabeth created from the individual feathers is the perfect metaphor for community; unique pieces coming together to make something beautiful. This was a great experience working with Elizabeth to put the Spread Your Wings Project in action in our school and in our community.

From Joel Pardalis, Wingman Program Leader/Teacher, New Fairfield Middle School

“Elizabeth Bryan-Jacobs has become a creatively inspiring addition to the Canyon Ranch programming family. Canyon Ranch guests are discerning, savvy and beautifully open to life-expanding and enriching experiences. Elizabeth fits perfectly into this fold. From the day we spoke on the phone about our collaboration, I knew she would share her gifts generously and expertly with our special clientele. She does not disappoint.Elizabeth is all at once soothing and energizing, providing a safe and comforting environment to step outside of what is familiar and try something new. She arrived with her arsenal of treasures, much to the delight of Creative Awakenings participants. It is truly a one-of-a-kind experience that, as I have witnessed, is uniquely different for everyone.”

From Samantha Talora, Communications Coordinator, Canyon Ranch – Lenox, MA

“Spread Your Wings” is a powerfully moving, magnificently executed project and work of art that touched the lives of so many children and families, and will continue to do so. The final art piece also raised a significant amount of funding that directly benefits Dell Children’s, providing countless opportunities for patients and families to express themselves creatively in order to alleviate anxiety, process trauma, manage pain, and simply be kids in the midst of difficult circumstances. Thank you, Elizabeth Bryan-Jacobs!”
