SHORT STORY

We focus on partnering with San Diego charities to help raise money and awareness for children in need by establishing relationships with donors and artists. It is our vision and passion to bring art, culture, and humanities together for the greater good of the community.

When our daughter was born she suffered a pneumothorax and spent time in a NICU. The experience motivated us to focus our fundraising and awareness efforts on children in need. We feel every child deserves a fair start in life and raising money and awareness for charities focused on children in need is important.

We have established charity partnerships by the help of the 501st Legion. This all-volunteer organization creates movie-quality Star Wars costumes to appear at charitable events around the world.  Every year the 501st Legion focus on a specific charity to support and we direct our efforts to the same targeted charity. We help the 501st and they help us.

We have worked with Mama’s Kitchen, who provide free food to adults and children living with AIDS and cancer, Rady Children’s Hospital , sustaining and enhancing the health and developmental potential of children through excellence in care, education, research and advocacy, StandUp for Kids, assisting homeless youth, Monarch School, educating students impacted by homelessness focusing on student growth academically, socially, emotionally, and life skills development, Solutions for Change, helping solve family homelessness, and Serving Seniors, helping seniors in poverty live healthy and fulfilling lives.

Our goal is to secure a facility where we can offer free art and music classes to less fortunate children. This facility will house community outreach events on a frequent and scheduled basis. It is important to have a facility where kids can go and learn the arts. Our proposal explains who, what, where, and why we are needing a facility of our own. Until we have our own facility we will continue to help spread love throughout the community wherever and whenever we can.
