After receiving some wonderful contributions over the past 10 days, including $5,000 from the Brotman Foundation of California, we have raised nearly $12,000, over 1/2 of our goal! Our momentum is great right now, and with your help, I know we can reach our $20,000 goal! Thank you to those who have contributed so far, we are so grateful for your support.

If you have been following our work, you know that the main goal of our program, Wild Artis to build community and sustainability through art. This program gives LA youth a chance to make a permanent mark on their own community, to take ownership of and pride in where they live through their own creative powers. We believe this will instill in them the desire to be stewards that community, of the environment and of the arts for many years to come.
Now is your chance to be a part of something great! There are several ways to participate:
We are seeking funds to turn the artwork of 200 LA teens into a permanent public sculpture in Los Angeles. (Need a refresher? Read the back story on our project, Wild Art.) If you have been following our work, you know we have made several awesome sustainable art pieces with youth across LA, but this will be the first one that is a public work of art, and the first one that will feature individual art pieces by LA youth. This is our chance to show these teens that their creativity can positively impact their community, their city and the natural world they live in. Donate now!
We are hoping to take this crowdfunder far and wide: the more people who know about it, the larger our network becomes and the more change we can create. Sharing via social media, email and in one-on-one conversations are all appreciated! Share this link.
