With only 50 prints made, this is a limited edition drop made specifically to support our mission in empowering our youth to become change makers and mindful leaders in the future.

 With the drastic inequities in mental health and education access in Chicago, there is a pressing demand for our SEL Art Activity Book and we have received over 3000 requests from our partner schools across the city. Your book purchase sponsors one book for a TSG student in need. Full of reflective activities, meditations, and beautiful coloring pages, this book is suited to kids (and adults!) of all ages, and we encourage you to pick up additional copies for you and your loved ones.

To increase your impact and get even more books into the hands of the students who need them most, please consider donating here.

More Information on the TSG Art Activity Book below:

Since the COVID-19 Pandemic hit our communities, it has exacerbated inequities that have always existed in Chicago. As schools began shutting down and curriculum quickly shifted online, unequal access to internet and technology became a drastic problem, leaving over one-third of students with no access to education or mental health support in low-income communities.

In addition, the pandemic has intensified the mental health crisis which will affect generations to come. This especially impacts our low-income communities who already lack mental health resources. In response to this crisis, TSG developed our first Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Based Art Activity Book to support the well-being and mental health of our youth without internet access.

The TSG Art Activity Book synthesizes TSG's SEL-Based Art Curriculum into a printed Art Activity & Coloring Book focused on developing a student's understanding of what the 'simple good' means to them through influences of artists from all around the world. The students will take a journey of identifying positivity in their lives and their communities, developing an understanding of how they can use their 'simple goods' to change the world. The book will feature pages from incredible artists from all over the globe including Alice Pasquini (Italy), Oak Oak (France), Stinkfish (Colombia), Ivan Vazquez (Chicago), Richard Colman (San Francisco) and more!

During Winter 2020, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic that still dictated our realities, there was no certainty on what life would continue to look like. It was during this time when Chicago non-profits, The Simple Good and BUILD Chicago, came together to reflect on the challenges of the past year and how we can work together to create light amidst the chaos. It did not take long for the youth to become the highlight of the discussion, being inspired by the resilience they always show. It was important for us to celebrate their continued strengths, leadership, and acts of simple good that they take part in everyday in order to show the world that these are acts that truly impact others.

 This compilation of comics was inspired by The Simple Good’s Sheroes of COVID-19’ book, which shared stories about female sheroes from across the globe who stepped up their leadership to spread the simple good during the pandemic. We wanted to challenge our girls to also think of themselves as change agents in their worlds as Sheroes of Chicago- elevating their truths that they have discovered throughout the pandemic.

This book is written by BUILD Chicago’s BUILDing Girls 2 Women youth who will share how they are Sheroes in their Chicago communities, depicting the ways they have used their meaning of the simple good to change their world. Read their stories and join their movement in order to create a better world… together.

Proceeds of this book go to TSG and BUILD Chicago.

The story is part of a series of books to help children and families navigate the complexities of the crisis. Praise for Sheroes of COVID-19: “So important. So relatable. So human. Sheroes of COVID-19 is an inspiration to our families in a time when we need just that. This is a great learning opportunity for people as young as 4 and old as 104. It is a leadership book, a geography book, a hopeful book, and an understanding book.”— Geraldine Laybourne, first President of Nickelodeon and advocate for children and women“This special book shows how women are leading during the COVID-19 pandemic. No matter who you are or where you come from, you can make life better for your community. Just look around you, then take initiative to make things better. And keep reading and encourage others to do the same!” — Dr. Ronald F. Ferguson, Harvard University Professor, and Founder, The Basics“Everyone can be a leader because everyone can help in some way—even in a scary time like this. I am sure these amazing women leaders will inspire you because when women lead, positive changes happen.”— Melanne Verveer, Executive Director, Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security and Former U.S. Ambassador for Global Women’s Issues“Sheroes of COVID-19 is a wonderful resource to foster conversations between children and adults. These essential conversations will help the readers of this book recognize the power of ordinary women to do extraordinary things to mitigate human suffering during the most serious pandemic in a century.”— Dr. Fernando M. Reimers, Ford Foundation Professor of the Practice of International Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education

"My simple good is to be caring and courageous. I feel this way because when someone actually cares for me it gets me really happy and it also gives me courage to do the right thing. I feel like this is very important because we all know that we have to care for each other and it’s really nice to do something good for others and see them smile. It is also harder for the other people because if there close to the person that is suffering it is hard for them to see that person cry or be sad. I think my work will impact the Little Village community because it will make people reflect and communicate with others. I think the Rwanda students will gain courage and also many happinesses from my artwork."

"My simple good that we are better together. This means that we as people can work together and accomplish more things together. My artwork expresses a social issue by showing people around the planet earth holding hands. We all should care about each other so that we could get more things done. My artwork can impact the Little Village community by showing people helping each other. We need to help clean up our community and get rid of all the gun violence. The Rwanda students will see that we are from the same planet so we are equal are we can take care of the planet together. Even through we are far away and of a different race we are we should care about one another and our world."
