When I first applied to help provide Illustrations for Drawchange INC's magazine to help raise funds, I honestly did not know what this organization did. When I went to their website and got the whole perspective on what they do along with the services they are providing to children and the communities they live in, I was touched. With the recent cut backs on art programs in the world today, Drawchange INC's mission to bring art to these communities that lack art within the community is a huge feat that is not easy to do. The great thing about Drawchange INC is it doesn't just stop at bringing art supplies and art projects to communities, Drawchange INC also works with other organizations to bring food, shelter and other needs to communities that need it in it's home town of Atlanta. Drawchange INC is such a great non profit that if it had more exposure to more people, I think it would be a stronger non-profit and be able to reach more communities that need this service to help make more communities stronger with the power of art. The CEO of the non profit group, Jennie Lobato, is a great leader, very passionate about her work and is a pleasure to work with. When I volunteered my artistic skills, she was always kind and provided me with her honest opinion, but always took my knowledge about how to make the artwork work for her cause with an open ear. I believe the world will always need art and having Drawchange INC around to bring art into communities that need this crucial form of expression within it is a must need for the world today.
