    1. Wow, these are such masterpieces for the children’s ages and are beautiful! And they are all for such a great cause! But Jais, please, let’s not bring politics into this! These are outstanding, and no need of Trump interfering with these lovely pieces! But yes, very heartwarming! All of the poor animals, but these kids have better art skills than a lot of adult artists!
