December News – Winter Is Coming

Winter Is Coming, and we have a winner! But really, you all are winners! Our donation drive Winter Is Coming – Give & Win was a big success. Valda Lake, owner of Wallspace L.A. had opened the doors of her gallery to us, providing a space for our supporters to stop by and drop off their donations. All in all, we received 78 sleeping bags, 18 tents and 20 tarps. Not in our wildest dreams did we expect these numbers. Amazing!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We thank anyone who donated from the bottom of our hearts!

It is always rewarding to do something good for others, and sometimes there even is an icing on the cake.

Jaime Lynn-Bach of Alhambra is the lucky recipient of a $300 Amazon gift card. Congratulations from all of us!

A big thank you also to DJ Cherish The Luv who came all the way from NY to spin awesome tunes for us!

With the temperatures recently dropping to the low 40s at night and the strong Santa Ana winds blowing people’s tents away, there was no time to dilly-dally.

We immediately started to distribute your donations to those in need, and it was not difficult to find happy takers.

UNSHELTERED VI

View from the DJ booth

Our sixth art show, Unsheltered VI, featuring works by homeless, at-risk youth and young adults, was a big success. Taking place at prestigious hair salon Ramos Carreon – owned by Emmy winning stylist Robert Ramon and Philip Carreon, the event attracted a steady flow of visitors.

Leahcim, Andrew, Jessie and Neil

The show included 34 pieces as colorful and diverse as the ten young artists who created them: Altitude Abstrakt, Andrew Washington, Darrel DJ Morgan, Jess Barlass, Kris Williams, Leahcim Robinson, Marquze Killion, Morgan Movesaround, Neil Massey, Wolfgang Meesenburg.

We had a full house all night, at times it felt more like being at a party than at a formal reception. DJ Cherish The Luv had come all the way from New York to support us, and her feel good music put a smile on everyone’s face. At the end of the day 26 of 34 pieces had sold, and the additional 8 pieces have also found new homes since!

Unsheltered VI

Art by Homeless, At-Risk Youth and Young Adults

Our very own L.A. based non-profit A Million Drops is proud to present Unsheltered – Art by Homeless, At-Risk Youth and Young Adults. For the sixth time since its conception in 2015, we have been able to gather an eclectic group of young artists, some living in shelters or couch surfing, others sleeping in tents or cars. While their backgrounds are as diverse as their styles, they have one thing in common: their talent and desire to express themselves through art.

For Unsheltered VI, prestigious celebrity hair salon Ramos Carreon will be opening its doors to host the show. Owners Robert Ramos and Philip Carreon are excited to provide this incredible opportunity to the young artists, and to share their works with you. 

All art will be available for purchase; the proceeds will go 100% to the artists and towards art supplies.

To join the event on Facebook, please go to our Event Page.

When: Saturday, September 30, 7-10 pm

Where: Ramos Carreon Salon, 7402 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90036
