Everyone deserves an awesome place to live.
More than we tend to notice, the surroundings we come up in tremendously impact our feelings, thoughts, and success. Living in an area that feels dead or neglected tends to give our reality that same feel. Luckily it doesn’t take much to revamp and bring life into a neighborhood.
We’re out to bring a series of energizing paintings to walls in South LA. If you’ve ever wanted to support something that makes life better in a real way, here’s your chance to do it!
Beautifying South LA
All areas can be beautiful places to be, with initiative & vision. We’re spearheading the creation of uplifting artwork all around South LA. Join us in turning a little paint into a leap in quality of life in the South LA community.
We want to install new murals and beautify storefronts at critical locations in the Crenshaw and South LA regions.
Beautify Earth has brightened many neighborhoods. We’ve helped drab, sleepy sort of areas in places like Santa Monica and Venice become thriving, popular attractions with our murals.
Traffic and sales have increased by up to 50% near businesses they've beautified.. Not to mention happiness ;-)
Finishing the First Mural
In starting our first mural, we soon found it was far larger than our resources would complete. We’ll need the following it wrap it up:
- A Lift to reach the heights of the 22 ft. wall
- A Sprayer to finish the rough parts of the wall
- Lots More Paint.
The first of the funds we raise will go towards this wall’s completion. If anyone has access or ties to people with the necessary materials, let us know :-) Shine@lightthelaunch.com
The rest of the funds will go towards materials and artist stipends for more beautification efforts in the Crenshaw & South LA areas!
