About Art4TheHomeless
Imagine... a movement inspired by the arts to open the eyes of Americans to the plight of their own people. Imagine, through art, music and poetry, we are shining a much needed light on our own crisis: HOMELESSNESS

Art4TheHomeless was once a blog called Colors of Ink with Blogcharm, which closed down. Nutang, became the new home of Colors of Ink and was renamed Art4TheHomeless, by a really good friend, Samantha Medd. She is now the Co-Founder of Art4TH.

Now Art4TH is a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization that unites artists of all venues to promote homeless awareness in the US.

Art4TH does this through the Art4TH Webzine, a monthly online magazine that features a musician whose music plays throughout the website, a feature artist, and a feature writer while also featuring a homeless relief organization. All artists featured retain their copyrights and all of it is free. If you would like to be a featured artist, musician, or writer contact me at johnnacrider@att.net

New Look and more links!
Sunday. 1.27.08 1:00 pm
Ok so I totally remixed the look! I am still working on it and I do have links for homeless shelters for ALL the states including DC! Of course, I want to keep adding on to those links, but no one is leaving any comments or sending me links! The links are on the right of the posts and each state is in ALL CAPS and a lighter shade of the font color than the regular type face--I give all the credit to Blogrolling.com for that!

In my next post, I will have a shelter from the link list to the right chosen for the Art4TheHomeless Homeless Shelter Award--sorry no monetary prize yet since I am broke but I will send the shelter an html image badge for the award--one I created of course--and tell you more about the shelter, how to contact them and what their specific needs are but first I need my readers to leave comments and show America that you care! After all, what if it was YOU who were about to be evicted from your home? Remember, the average age of a homeless person in America is only 9 years old--a mere child, and the age is only going to drop if we don't put a stop to this crisis.

MLK Holiday
Monday. 1.21.08 4:11 pm
School is out for us in Atlanta for the Martlin Luther King, Jr. Holiday. There was a march, but I didn't get to go--I was asleep. So I took advantage of the free computers and put up links to shelters! I only have a few states to go as I have stopped at Texas and of course, I will continue to add shelters because there are many, many more that I have here.

Death
Sunday. 12.30.07 8:55 pm
It happens to everyone. I just don't like to witness it in person. Job corps took us to Golden Corral tonight and while we were eating, I heard screams for help. What happened was that a lady had a seizure and we were informed that she died. The paramedics did the shock thing, but the ambulance left without the sirens loud. Her little girl was screaming, "Mommy!" I will never forget that.

I met the singer from Silk!!!
Friday. 12.28.07 1:16 pm


Job Corps took us to Cracker Barrel today where we met the singer from Silk and (I think) his girlfriend. Her name is Melinda or Belinda--I just heard the linda part. So you know I had to tell him about Art4the homeless and he said he would check it out when he got time which is totally awesome. I would love to give both of them a piece of my art--for free-- because I am just that kind of person. I briefly told him my goal with my art. I had to keep it brief because they were eating and his lady seemed a little impatient and I don't blame her. Gotta give it up for her for having the patience in dating a celeb--if she is his girl. I am just assuming she is. Most of the people in my group barely even spoke to her which I found rude. I introduced myself to both of them and I hope that people will be more courteous to celebrities and their friends/relatives/spouses/dating partners when they see them with the celebs. It was cool that he gave me his autograph and took a picture with me. It was awesome!! That made my day today.

May God bless them both!

Now for the update on my mother. I have heard from her two days ago and she told me that Laurent, her boyfriend lied to her about Grady Hospital not giving him his meds--which sounded totally wack anyways. It turnes out that he refused and according to my mom, he wants to kill her and me so now I have to be careful since he knows that TCU school is downtown and he has been there before. I had to let my inctructor know and a few of the girls who people mistake for me know. I don't want anything happening to my peers because of my mother and her situations. That would be blood on my hands as well. So please keep her in in your prayers.

peace

Johnna

Art4The Homeless is back!
Monday. 12.24.07 1:56 pm
If you are homeless and need assistance, scroll to the right side of this page and there are links for shelters for the states of Alabama--North Carolina. I am still working on getting links for the rest of the states.

I do apologize to all of my readers but my site has been down, but its back up an running. I am going to give you a run down on things going on. My mother is back on the streets again and she was kicked out of the shelter yesterday. She and her boyfriend were in a couples shelter, but he started showing signs of a mental illness and Grady Hospital refused to precscribe him medication for it so that is why they got kicked out. I have no idea where she is now and its cold out there.

I am staying at Job Corps for Christmas break and they treated us out to restaurants so I am happy to have a good meal adn a place to stay. I may be (hopefully) getting a job with the City of Atlanta after the new year and will be graduating from here and in the fall, will be going to college. I am currently working on my scholorship and a portfolio for college.

I am also working on adding more links to shelters in the other states--I have not forgotten! I know more and more people are homeless this time of year and I want to do all that I can to help. Though I know you are probably thinking why am I helping others and not my mom--I am not helping others. I have no money--just this blog and my artwork. That is all I have so if you are feeling judgemental towards me about that, then please don't.

My friend got free tickets to the fox Theatre and the pictures I took are posted inside my nutang.com gallery so feel free to look at the gallery photos.

I have been selling some on Zazzle and I just want to mention that I appreciate the buyers--I don't know who they are but God knows. It makes me feel great that people are buying my stuff over someone else's and also knowing that its going for a good cause.
