ITASCA, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Superstorm Sandy left a wake of destruction and heartbreak in its path across the northeastern coastline of the U.S., but the unbreakable spirit of those impacted by this disaster continues to shine as a source of strength and inspiration. As we approach Valentine’s Day, Enesco and Billy the Artist are joining forces with the American Red Cross to distribute Billy the Artist knitwear to these same families in a show of support and neighborly love.
Billy the Artist, an internationally renowned artist and New York native, will be on-site at the Borough of Union Beach municipal building on Saturday, February 9th at 1 pm, to help distribute his designer knitware to those families in need of warmth and a splash of much-needed color over the wintery Valentine’s holiday. In the past, Billy the Artist has painted murals of hope and inspiration for children’s hospitals all over the world, and it’s in this same tradition of giving that Billy is donating his time and life-affirming products to lift the spirits (and warm the bodies) of his fellow coastline neighbors.
Enesco is proud of its association with such a remarkable and unique talent as Billy the Artist, and together they hope to make a small but positive difference in the hearts of those individuals who are rebuilding their homes and lives in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.
