Helping children in need in America, Colombia and Panama. Scroll down to learn more and purchase rocks.
Katie Jane Brier was born on April 25, 2012, in Panama City, Panama. She has lived and gone to school in Panama, Colombia, and the U.S. In the summer she goes to her house in Maine where she likes to spend time on the lake, go to summer camp, and collect and paint rocks in her spare time. Through her travels she has seen kids that are not as fortunate as she is and she has always shown empathy for them even at her young age. We (her parents) decided to start Katie Jane Rocks in order to help less fortunate children in Panama, Colombia, and Maine. 100% of the proceeds earned from the sale of Katie Jane Rocks hand painted rocks are used to support three specific causes:
1. Help at-risk orphans in Medellin, Colombia, through donations to The Emiliani Project, an organization that provides direct care for orphaned children in Medellin, Colombia.
2. Providing direct assistance to the Juan E. Jimenez public elementary school in the mountain district of Los Altos De Cerro Azul, Panama, by donating meals and school supplies every month directly to the school administrators.
3. Providing scholarship funds to Camp Tracy in Oakland, Maine, to allow children from low income families to attend a week of lakeside summer camp at reduced or no cost. Camp Tracy has been providing summer day camp to area children for 50 years.
The proceeds from every purchase are shared equally among these three groups. This allows you to make one purchase / donation and know that your purchase is helping less fortunate children in three different countries.
Each summer Katie Jane collects rocks from around the shores of Magrath Pond in Oakland, Maine. She collects them by hand and then washes and dries each rock. She then paints each rock by hand ensuring each rock is unique in appearance. The painted rocks are meant to be a lasting symbol of hope that reflect the goodness of the human spirit. A human spirit that embodies compassion and assistance when it comes to helping children in need, regardless of borders.
