They say it so well themselves, I don’t need to add anything.

“These challenges won’t disappear overnight, even with comprehensive
health reform. That’s why RxArt is making steady, small improvements
in our nation’s hospitals right now – with creativity, we aim to
improve the experience of healthcare treatment and steady patients who
need relief. Tonight, when you discuss the latest in Washington
healthcare politics, take a break and consider RxArt’s small, yet
creative approach to reform.” and “We can’t fix healthcare, but we can
mend its spirit.”

They are using art donations and sales to fund bringing art and custom
interior decorating into hospitals and healing spaces, mostly in the
New York City area. I don’t know anything about them as a charity, but
I like the art and the concept, and how effectively they are using
social media to promote their efforts.
