I was driving down the street in New Orleans one day and ran into this young lady working in a community garden. She had over 40 kids working with her. I asked if I could do anything to help and the young lady say what kind of help ma'am. I then said how can I make a monetary donation, the young lady Rah was so humble that I have become a active participate. I love how she works with the children.

The LKNT organization is one of the most truthful, giving & progressive arts organizations I have come in contact with. I have personally enjoyed the work they do for the community for many many years. I started off taking dance classes with them at St. Mark's Community Center in New Orleans, Louisiana in the early 80's to mid 90's, have been a supporter ever since. Now I love volunteering with them whenever time permits. They are what I call a living breathing cultural incubator. I know them to be dedicated and committed to keeping arts and culture alive. They work with a limited budget and still give it all they have, so if they had funding, I can't imagine the miracles they would work.
