Happy Birthday Eliza Hamilton – We’ll Tell Your Story!

Eliza Hamilton turns 261 on August 9th, 2018.  And, to celebrate her birthday and her legacy, Coloring Broadway teamed up with Graham Windham to create a special coloring page!

Eliza, the Founder and First Directress,  was born on August 9, 1757. Just 48 years later, Graham Windham came into being as The Orphan Asylum Society in New York City. Eliza began and her legacy that lives on in the critical work Graham Windham does to support kids and families in NYC. Today, we celebrate and honor her incredible contribution to our nation — building a strong foundation for some of our country’s most vulnerable children.
