Snow Sculpture for a Cause

Partnering with One Day’s Wages to provide clean water and sanitation


About the Bartz Brothers

For several years, we have built an annual snow sculpture as a way to get outside, hang out together, and bring a little cheer to our community—and, as news spread, to the world. Based on frequent feedback we received, passersby and visitors to our Facebook page were amazed by the expression of creativity, by the intricacy of the sculptures themselves, and—perhaps most astounding—by the fact that three brother would voluntarily log so many hours together. But to us, the only real amazement about the experience is that we have the freedom, the resources, and the energy to complete such a task. We have the protection of a safe neighborhood; adequate clothing to keep us warm when temps dip well below freezing while we work; and as many breaks as we want to take, in order to refuel with snacks and water. For several years, community supporters who were moved by our work told us we should erect some sort of donation box where they could toss in a few bucks in exchange for the joy they felt as they drove by, and starting last year, we finally took their advice. Given the sole raw asset of our work—snow—we thought it made sense to have collected monies go toward providing clean drinking water for people in need.
