Art That Really Heals!

The next time you put on a bandage, you might be wearing the artwork of Justin Dalcorabbo. Justin was only 11 years old when he won the grand prize in Curad's Design Your Own Bandage contest. It was the first Design Your Own Bandage contest for Curad - a popular maker of kids bandages.

The Message Behind The Art

Justin's design is a colorful bandage with the message "Heal the World." "I just wanted to make a proposal that people should heal the world because the world is sort of messed up," said Justin about his design. "Saddam Hussein, gang members, stuff like that." His design was chosen from just over 25,000 entries, all from kids 14 and under. Five other kids also won for their design but Justin's artwork took first place.

Aspiring Artist?

Justin, who's from Munster, Indiana, says art is only a hobby for him. "I've been drawing since I was little." When he grows up, Justin wants to become a stockbroker or a basketball player. Besides loving basketball, Justin also likes baseball, the saxophone and video games. What kid doesn't? Justin's design won a trip for the family to Nickelodeon Studios in Orlando, Florida.

Do you know a kid who's done something worth mentioning? They don't have to have invented a time machine or saved a life.

    It's ruining lives... i learned that. I think it shouldn't  ruin marriages because  one of the partners think they should fit in and "become gay". This is my opinion though, think whatever you want and fill my notifactions with hate....

    Both candidates yes are not the best but Trump has no expirence in politics. 1. He is xenophobic and a racist ###### against other people exept for himself. 2. He has yet to pay 1 nickel in paying federal taxes because he avoids that by putting all of his money into his Swiss bank account. No wonder why he complains why it costs so much to move money over seas 3. He has not payed his workers the money that they asked for. 4. Most of his employees that work on his properties most likely are illegal immagents since he wants everything to be as cheap as possible.5. He policies will only cause or anual debt to add an extra 5 trillion dollars total up to more than 25 trillion dollars in debt. 6. Mexico paying for the wall that's not going to happen. You can't force another country to pay for a wall because our immagration policies are not adaquite enough. That's a problem with our immagration policies not the border fence. 7. He made up a bunch of conspiracy theories about why Obama was not born in the United States or the fact that he caused 9/11 because he was a Muslim. We all know that these accounts are bullcrap. He is just not qualified for the job in anyway for a multitude of reasons and this list can go on for ever. He has too many flaws in his ideas and wants to benfit off of the job as much as he can because he really only cares about himself not the people as a whole.
