==============================================================

On Saturday, June 11th 2016, we will be celebrating the 4th Annual Unfuck The World Day with events around the globe, introducing positive projects + people making change!

As in previous years, we are going to be joined by unfuckers in Australia, Asia, Europe, North America and for the first time, South America.

The keywords of each event are positive local action, and our focus here at the UTW headquarters in L.A. is on youth homelessness and what can be done about it. Our event will take place in the heart of Hollywood, right where we are doing our outreach work in support of the youth and young adults who sleep in shelters, on friends’ couches, on sidewalks or next to the freeway.

Unsheltered – a series of Art Shows featuring works by homeless youth

We will present the Unsheltered Art Show, featuring pieces by homeless youth and young adults, a donation drive and flea market to raise money for our non-profit, A Million Drops, live music and DJs, a one dollar raffle with awesome prizes, and booths introducing local organizations who make this world a little better.

Lots of cool stuff at low prices to raise money for our non-profit

DONATION DRIVE & FLEA MARKET: We invite you to stop by and drop off in-kind donations: new or gently used back packs, sleeping bags, tents and new socks are highly appreciated and will go directly to someone in need. We will also accept small household and decorative items, appliances, small furniture… in good, resalable condition – so we can include them in our rummage sale to help raise money for our non-profit, A Million Drops. Or you could just visit to browse our flea market for that special item you always wanted… 🙂

MUSIC & ART: Enjoy live music by Oakland based artist Drew Imagination and Los Angeles native DJ Matt Cornwall while looking at the amazing art that was created by local homeless and at-risk youth and young adults. All pieces will be for sale, the proceeds will go directly to the homeless artists.

FOOD & LEMONADE: Made with love and proudly provided by Taco Tuesdays and Misfit Lighting.
