ALPINE, Utah (KUTV) - An Alpine man is taking a tragedy in his own life and turning it into something good, spreading smiles across Utah.
At the age of 11, Glenn Stucki was in a jet ski accident. It left him in a coma for six weeks. His brain has since been partially stuck on being 11.
When Stucki woke up in the hospital, his room was filled with pictures of superheroes, painted by his uncle. Those gave him hope.
His own passion is painting and he uses his skills to bring hope to others. He paints pictures for sick kids.
He tried art college out at one point and it was there that he met a man named Bart Hawkins.
Together, they’ve formed a non-profit called “Change 4 Love”.
Stucki had previously agreed to paint pictures for thousands of kids.
Now, he still paints, but Hawkins has helped him to mass produce some of the pictures to help narrow down the list. They also raise funds for families in need.
Around Christmas they also set up their own kiosk in the Provo mall, offering free artwork with any donation. That did and continues to do really well.
The dynamic duo also often visit kids in the hospital to deliver art or even deliver them to kids’ homes.
