Review for Create Now, Inc., Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been Chairman of the Board, on the board, organized benefits and performed in benefits- all for Create Now. But most importantly, I've worked one on one in my studio and at every detention camp in the LA area with the kids- those kids whose eyes light up when they get a glimpse of the possibility of their potential and who they can be because of artistic influence. I've watched the transformation first hand, mentoring kids whose lives change in a moment, affected by the love, motivation and impact of adults and role models who provide a vehicle of transcendence for them beyond what they have known into what they now know can exist for them. This is what the artistic mentoring and programs can continue to do, but only with your continued support of Create Now...

Review for Create Now, Inc., Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a presenter who has done dozens of presentations for kids in detention camps all over the Los Angeles area, I can say that I have helped reshape many kids' lives. These events were all facilitated by Create Now! Imagine what it feels like to see immediate attitude shifts in many of these incarcerated kids and then bring some of these kids into my recording studio and actualize their creative dreams. Feel free to contact me to have me play you some music that these kids have created. This is all because of Create Now.

Bring in a board member with seemingly unlimited resources of funding! We need to spend a great deal of time on fund-raising which of course detracts from the programs...
