Fostering Hope Through Awareness-Inspired Artwork


Appleton Creative Donates one-of-a-kind Foundation for Foster Children Giving Circle™ art piece to Panera Bread’s corporate office in Central Florida 

Orlando, Fla. – Appleton Creative, an award-winning, full-service advertising agency, is proud to donate a custom-designed Foundation for Foster Children Giving Circle™ art piece to Panera Bread of Central Florida. The original 6-foot-square art piece will be displayed in Panera’s corporate office in recognition of their longtime support of the foundation. Additionally, Appleton Creative distributed 50 posters of the original art to each Orlando area store manager during their quarterly meeting held on Sept. 3, 2013. The bakery-café chain plans to display the posters in stores, in hopes of raising awareness about the needs of the over 1,400 ethnically diverse foster children residing in the Central Florida community.

The Giving Circle™ centerpiece is a rendering of various art pieces created by and for the Foundation of Foster Children, an organization with the mission to enrich the lives of children placed in foster care due to abuse and neglect by providing opportunities that nurture their ability to succeed both as individuals and contributing members of our community.

Appleton Creative and Panera Bread have partnered for the cause in the past, most recently during the 2012 Giving Tree event and Appleton Awareness Gallery “Blue Hope,” which helped raise donations and awareness for the foundation. Both companies have been longtime supporters of the Foundation for Foster Children.

The Appleton Awareness Gallery was developed within the agency’s office space to draw attention to the various causes the firm supports. “We believe that art should be enjoyed and appreciated, and hope that the meaning behind the art will create an increased awareness for our community’s charitable needs,” said Diana LaRue, President and Creative Director of Appleton Creative.
