Reston, VA, December 17, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Cody Black, a kindergartner at Rockhill Elementary School in Stafford, Virginia, is the latest recipient of $400 in U.S. savings bonds from RefrigeratorArtist.com.
The website, which provides a place for parents to store and share their child’s artwork online, is home to a monthly drawing that any parent may enter for free. Parents enter by selecting one piece of art from their child’s gallery each month to receive votes from other site members. Every vote the artwork receives becomes another entry in the drawing, increasing the artist’s chances of winning the savings bonds that month.
Cody’s mom, Tiffany, is the RefrigeratorArtist.com site member who entered “Fall by Cody” in the contest. According to Tiffany, “Cody just loves being able to see his art on the computer. We are really enjoying the opportunity for him to share his art with family and friends.” Tiffany has invited many friends and family to sign up on the site, and Cody has spread the word as well to friends and teachers at his elementary school. “I think it is a race each day to see who can vote for him first,” Tiffany says. The votes they cast throughout November paid off, since each vote gave Cody’s art another chance at being selected.
Cody enjoys various art mediums, including making collages, sculpting with Play-Doh, and painting. He intends to save his savings bonds for “something very special.” Currently he’s thinking that might be paint for creating more works of art. While he intends to be a NASCAR driver, a monster truck driver, a motorcycle driver, AND a professional football player when he grows up, his fans on RefrigeratorArtist.com no doubt hope he’ll continue his artistic endeavors as well.
RefrigeratorArtist.com provides a place for parents to save and share their children’s artwork digitally free of charge. Parents can order customized products such as prints and t-shirts featuring the art and enter one piece of their child’s artwork in a monthly drawing for $400 in U.S. savings bonds. A portion of the profits from site advertising and product sales goes toward art programs and education for children.
