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 [email protected]

I have the perfect plan to bail out Wall Street
Tuesday. 9.30.08 1:54 pm
It's such a simple plan really, but I am thinking that all the politicians are scared to do this:
TAX ALL THE CEO'S OF CORPORATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just think of all those big guys who all the little employees are scared of. They jump at CEO's beck and call.
Our politicians are way to scared to tax them because they are BOUGHT politicians. America is not a democracy anymore unless you just happen to be a CEO.
And Renaye, you are soooo right. Capitalism sucks big time.
The Bank Bail Out Proposal
Monday. 9.29.08 2:39 pm
I found this on the web and totally agree with it.
Dear Mr. President:
I just want to know a few things from you. Why did you devastate our country? Did you know that millions of Americans struggle to get food on the table each night? What about the homeless people? I am talking about the homeless families with children on the streets because their jobs do not pay enough. You ignore the crisis and help out the rich. I am ashamed that you are my president. You want to bail out the banks, but what about the people, your citizens who once trusted you? We are supposedly $700 billion dollars in debt so where did this $700 billion come from to bail out the banks? Did you and your staff donate the money? Are you going to sell your ranch to help the banks out? If we actually have this money, why not use it to get America out of debt?

Images speak louder than words or song. Video of images create novels of lives of people you may never meet, people you see everyday, yet at the same time, they are invisible. They don't matter to you, you are not involved with their life. You notice the American flag, but ignore the veteran in the doorways. Stop ignoring them and watch this youtube video. It's only a couple of minutes. Two minutes out of 24 hours could easily change your perspective on life.

For Those of you new to Art4TheHOmeless

Hello and welcome! This entry is for the brand new folks to Art4TheHomeless. My mother and I were homeless due to my job not paying enough for rent. We slept under a bridge where a murder took place. The killers walked right by us and we were blessed because we are still alive. She finally got her disability which enabled us to get into a place. For almost three years, she was on the streets while I was in Job Corps. Before that I was living in Louisiana when Katrina and Rita hit. My mother was in Atlanta doing well with her job. My landlord decided to kick me and a few others out because he wanted to make room for Kevin Costner's movie crew for the movie The Guardian. So I came to GA, joined Job Corps, my mother's legs started failing and she lost her job, lived in shelters then on the streets. Then I got a job, a place, moved her in, lost the job, got another job but this is part time, so I couldn't afford rent. We stayed on the streets again and that's when that shooting took place.
My friend, Beth, runs a blog in the UK and wrote about Art4TH so this is for yall who came from her site. I just wanted to say a quick thank you for stopping by and thanks to Beth for writing about me!
I want to give you the link to the webzine that features artists, musicians, and writers from around the world and also shelters and organizations that help the homeless and need help and volunteers.

I bought an Obama tee shirt. A lot of folks wear them here so I decided to just join them, though, I wasn't expecting all the positive comments about my shirt today! I am glad I got it. I had so many people just walk up to me and agree with me on supporting Obama...and I think Obama would like that himself. He needs to come back to Atlanta, and I need to meet him and not at a dinner where its $2500 a plate.
Updating the links
Sunday. 9.21.08 1:45 pm
Now that I actually have access to the web, I am going to take the time to update all the links and create a webpage for them and list them in this order: By National and Directories, then by each HUD state. Since most of the links I have up are not working, I am not going to have individual Shelter links. I am also going to have them on the webzine as well as the blog so more people will have better access to the sites.
Also, I need poets, writers, and musicians for the next editions of October and November. If anyone is interested, leave a comment and your email and I will email ya.
Also to see the Art4TheHomeless webzine, the shelters and artists, poets, and musicians and also my folks advertising, go to
My mom had a birthday today
Sunday. 9.21.08 1:35 am
Just in time for her birthday she received a nice sum of disability and treated me. I didn't get paid in time from my job but I am getting her a late gift her fave purfure L'air de Temps I think I spelled it right. Anyway she got a lap top and we have free wifi so I am online at home. It's a nice feeling not to have to go to the library and wait for an hour just to get on and once we get MS Publisher on here I can work on the ezine. We got everything but Publisher and now it seems we have only 60 days with the windows software before we have to pay or install another one. I am not sure how that goes but MS word has been telling me that I have to enter a 25 digit code to get in and that I can only access it without the code about 20 more times. Is that normal??? Oh, well, maybe we should just get photoshop. we did get nortan antivirus only to find out it was already installed but since it expires 60 days we are good. We went to Wolfgang Puck express for her dinner, though the guy forgot some of our drinks I guess, but everything else was great. The atmorsphere was not like home, but that is to be expected in the big city.
I am only working once a week now and that is killing me. I need more hours. I spoke to my boss and they said they would work on it but I am gonna bug em for those hours. I don't want to have to depend on my mom, I am almost 26 and should be making something happen for myself. It's hard because the economy sux, Bush sux, and there is something weird about Palin--I get this negative vibe from her especially with those pictures of her torturing wolves. What's wrong with these people? They want a wolf torturer in the office but want to arrest a guy for dog fighting. Maybe its a race thing-- Michael Vick is a black guy and Palin is a white woman. I still think its wrong. At least he apologized. It's a sad world where they let child molesters in the streets, have a vice presidential candidate who shoots wolves down for fun but messes up a guy's career over dog fighting. Wow. America is really fucked up. Thank God that my mom and I are okay.
