This KICKSTARTER campaign is to raise money to produce the LilySarahGrace book, entitled, YOU CAN’T MEMORIZE THIS. All proceeds from book sales will go to support arts infused education in underfunded public elementary schools throughout the country.
YOU CAN’T MEMORIZE THIS is a compilation of drawings based on the concept that all great thinkers think outside the box. LilySarahGrace has enlisted some of the best, brightest and most unique thinkers of our generation to raise awareness for arts infused education in underfunded public elementary schools.
This book is simultaneously a protest against the drill and rote memorization form of “teaching” and a stand for America’s childrens’ right to celebrate their creative sides.
Everyone participating in this project is an individual who has inspired the idea that you can succeed if you color outside the lines. It is by doing so that allows us to dream and soar. Indeed, it makes the world a much more interesting, exciting and colorful place.
We handed artists from a number of different disciplines a sketchpad
and a marker and asked them to create a simple line drawing.
These are the results.

LilySarahGrace (LSG) today announced its latest fundraising campaign, “Color Outside the Lines,” based around drawings from more than 40 artists in film, television, music and visual art that were specially created for LSG.
The campaign will officially launch on Saturday, October 25, 2014, at the first-annual LSG Gala at Jack Studios (601 W 26th St).
Featured artists in the campaign include Adam Scott, Ben Harper, Bruno Mars, Carole Feuerman, Casey Affleck, David Copperfield, Diane von Furstenberg, Ed Helms, Elizabeth Banks, Elle Fanning, Eric Bogosian, Helen Ficalora, Jack Black, Jason Bateman, Jason Schwartzman, Jemima Kirk, Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Biel, Joaquin Phoenix, Johnny Knoxville, Julianna Marguiles, Julianne Moore, Justin Theroux, Justin Vivian Bond, Laura Dern, Laurie Simmons, Lena Dunham, Lionel Richie, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Mario Batali, Mark Seliger, Mary-Louise Parker, Naomi Watts, Natasha Lyonne, Nigel Sylvester, Rufus Wainwright, Sage Vaughn, Scott Caan, Tina Fey, Tom Arnold, Whoopi Goldberg, Will Ferrell and will.i.am.
As part of “Color Outside the Lines,” LSG has launched a Kickstarter campaign to publish these one-of-a- kind drawings into a book, titled You Can’t Memorize This. For more information about “Color Outside the Lines” and to donate to the cause, click here.
“My daughters were creative beings, each with their own individual passions and gifts. All three shared challenges in literacy. I witnessed Grace flourish in a creative, art-infused classroom, and Lily panic in a rigid, traditional one. No child should be frightened by school. Sadly with the removal of the Arts, this is very common in Public Education today,” LSG Founder Matthew Badger said. “This campaign is all about promoting the joy of creativity. I just think it is really awesome that so many creative people showed up for this and took the time to do a drawing. The family of LilySarahGrace suddenly just got so much bigger! I hope this campaign furthers our reach into the classrooms across America. The country is filled with public elementary school teachers that are desperate to bring the arts into their classrooms. They know how art creates a love of learning for their students.”
LSG provides underfunded schools with supplies and educational tools to teach their curriculum through the arts. Whoopi Goldberg, Charles Best and Hans Tullman will be honored at the Gala for their significant contributions and dedication to arts education.
LilySarahGrace was founded by Matthew Badger and his partner, Abby Ballin, after his daughters – Lily, Sarah and Grace – tragically passed away in a fire on Christmas of 2011. Lily was 9 and twins Sarah and Grace were 7. Badger witness firsthand how vital the arts in school were for his girls because of their dyslexia. Art was their passion. Since April 2012, LSG has given $1 million in supplies to teachers in underfunded public elementary schools to teach their curriculum through the arts. Because of LilySarahGrace, 140,000 children have learned through this method in classrooms all over America. To learn more, visit www.lilysarahgrace.org.
In addition to “Color Outside the Lines,” the Gala will feature specially designed charms from Helen Ficalora, based on a drawing by Sarah Badger. The charms are available in yellow, pink or white 14k, solid-gold – with a diamond charm or without – and sterling silver. Pricing ranges from $75 to $300. 25% of the proceeds go to LSG. Charms will be available for purchase at the LSG Gala.
The evening will also feature a performance by Rufus Wainwright and a DJ set by Andy Rourke of the Smiths. Creative direction for the Gala is conceptualized and executed by Abby Ballin and Periel Aschenbrand. To purchase tickets for the Gala, click here.
The Host Committee for the 2014 LSG Gala includes Laura Dern, Mindy Goldberg, Jenny Levy, Genevieve Lynch, Timory King, Tim Ives, Gaby Basora, Doug Halbert, Stacy Wall, Jake Bernstein, Michael Goldberg, Cindy Sherman, Rebecca Blumhagen, Liana Pai and Bridget Goodbody.

Diminutive Bruno Mars struggles to push an overloaded shopping trolley which is almost the same height as him
Bruno Mars brings a whole new meaning to the word ‘trolley-d’ after attempting to push one nearly the size of himself on Wednesday.
The diminutive singer was nearly engulfed by the shopping cart filled to the brim with groceries.
Bruno, 28, and girlfriend Jessica Caban, 32, had popped into Vons supermarket to do some food shopping.
The couple looked as though they had taken part in a game of Supermarket Sweep as the diminutive singer pushed the overloaded trolley back to his car.
Dressed in a Mickey Mouse sweatshirt, Nike shorts and wearing a baseball cap with an LA emblem on it, Rita Ora’s ex was almost unrecognisable from his smart stage persona.
The Grammy award winner, who is 5ft 5ins, didn’t seem to mind that the cart came up to his chest.
And the American singer-songwriter also showed his down-to-earth side queuing at the checkout with the other shoppers.
