There are several worthy charities in Los Angeles; the city of Angels purports a great amount of wealth and affluence, but there are also deep pockets of poverty and criminality. Hard N Da Paint is an organization that has been running programs in Los Angeles for the past 5 years through Self Help Graphics & Art in East Los Angeles.

The students and facilitators have made incredible gains over these past five years; it’s time to take HNDP to the next level. Over this time, HNDP affected thousands of youth with their popular open-mic series, and have individually mentored hundreds through the group's intensive music development workshops. The good people at Hard N Da Paint are giving teen Angelenos an alternative to institutionalized lives of poverty, low-expectations, and criminality.

Their programs give adolescents the confidence they need to value the things they dream; therefore, would you please consider donating to this amazing organization and spreading the word so that this group raises the monies they so desperately desire to become mobile and affect a greater outreach of their efforts, knowledge capital, and know-how.
