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.

All you tend to hear is protests against how horrible it is, but people seem to be fine with it on a whole tbh >>hmm it's unpleasant but I think most of it is necessary. I would say it's acceptable at the moment but we should try to find alternatives, e.g. testing on lab-grown tissues. And only test on animals for the things that have no alternatives

    When you truly love someone, no distance or amount of time can tear you apart. Sure it would be easier to move on, but being with anyone else would just be settling. The days are lonely and the nights are worse but when you have a love this strong never let it go. It may be hard, but God knows it'll be worth in the end. It's my favorite quote because I'm dating a soldier. I live in the state and town we met in but we've been together for four months and he's away at bootcamp right now but I love him. And this quote truly speaks about what we're going through.
