My beautiful gents we are making some beautiful art in the world and making a difference while we do it. I am super proud to get to work together with such a beautifully diverse group like ours to make what we do possible.
For the month of January, we donated to :
The East Los Angeles Women’s Center
“The mission of the East Los Angeles Women’s Center is to ensure that all women, girls and their families live in a place of safety, health, and personal well-being, free from violence and abuse, with equal access to necessary health services and social support, with an emphasis on Latino communities.”

AND TO THE
The International Organization for Migration
“The IOM is working in Libya to protect migrants’ human rights and to prevent them from being trafficked into servitude by smugglers. The organization is doing so by pushing Libyan authorities to develop alternatives to migrant detention centers (where migrants are often exploited and abused) and demanding that authorities hold those who abuse or enslave migrants accountable for their actions.
So far, the organization has succeeded in closing seven detention centers in the country and is pushing for the creation of open detention centers that respect migrants’ rights. “
