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]

New York Mayor Bloomberg helps the poor/ New link up for the State of Louisiana
Monday. 6.25.07 9:01 am
I was watching the news this morning and instead of the usual murders and car accidents, some good news came forth. Mayor Bloomberg is giving money to the impoverished Americans of his city if they make healthy choices. The money comes from his private funds that he and his staff raised up just for this project.
There was one Democrat critizing saying that it was giving the poor an excuse to be poor which I think was totally stupid of her and made her look bad. He is doing much more than she is in my opinion. He is doing what every American who can afford it should do: help his fellow citizens.
I applaud you, Mayor Bloomberg. We need more leaders like you in America.
Here is a news link if you want to see the article.
I also have a link up for the Homeless Links for the State of Louisiana--my friend Cassie emailed me the link and it is a pdf upload of homeless shelters and organizations. I will also have more links up for Louisiana coming soon. URL
8 new links up

Ok yall I have 4 new links up under the Federal Homeless Programs section and 4 new links up for Alabama Homeless Links. They are links to the US Interagency Council on Homelessness, HUD, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation United States and the Department of Education: Education for Homeless Children.
Two of the Alabam links are lists of homeless shelters in the state and one of thoses links has a map. One link is to the Friendship Mission operating out of Montgomery, AL and the Downtown Rescue Mission operating out of Huntsville, AL. These last two shelter do accept paypal, so I encourage you to donate if you have the extra $$
I will be working on more links for the states as I want to have links for people in all 50 States. The more people who come here and find help, the better. I will get paid for them coming and that money will be going to homeless shelters across the US.
If you have any links you want to see, feel free to contact me. If you are not a member of Nutang, don't worry, I am working on a guestbook where you can leave a homeless link.

Hi all. My name is Johnna Crider and this blog is called Colors of Ink and it is about helping the homeless. My goal is to raise $1000 by blogging to help shelters all across the US so I need everyone to comment.
I tried this with Blogcharm.com for a year and it didn't work out. Blogcharm owes me $30 and didn't pay out like they said they would so I am moving it.
Colors of Ink will have some of my art, and pictuers, and will also have links to various homeless shelters in your community. So everyone, if you have a link to a shelter leave me a comment. I am also posting a guestbook for those who are not members of Nutang so they will be able to post as well. I want Colors of Ink to be a source of information that would help a homeless person find help.
As you can see, Colors of Ink is still under construction but comments are ALWAYS welcome.
