Imagine... a movement inspired by the arts to open the eyes of Americans to the plight of their own people. Imagine, through art, music and poetry, we are shining a much needed light on our own crisis: HOMELESSNESS
Art4TheHomeless was once a blog called Colors of Ink with Blogcharm, which closed down. Nutang, became the new home of Colors of Ink and was renamed Art4TheHomeless, by a really good friend, Samantha Medd. She is now the Co-Founder of Art4TH.
Now Art4TH is a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization that unites artists of all venues to promote homeless awareness in the US.
Art4TH does this through the Art4TH Webzine, a monthly online magazine that features a musician whose music plays throughout the website, a feature artist, and a feature writer while also featuring a homeless relief organization. All artists featured retain their copyrights and all of it is free. If you would like to be a featured artist, musician, or writer contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

I may have lost my job
Tuesday. 5.27.08 1:14 pm
Sunday, I was working, as ususal, and my finger got caught in a lower door--and yeah it bled and I raised hell. At first I had a couple of customers then I had a line. In the line were some guys being deployed to Iraq--or Afghanistan and one of them accused me of cursing out a mother and her son who were in front of them. I raised up my hand, with blood going down my finger and apologized to the customers for my language and my inability to serve them. I called my supervisor and looked for the first aid kit--didn't find it. My supervisor found it--it was way in the back of the cabinet.
Anyway, this guy jumped on my supervisor telling her I had a bad attitude and called the HMS Host hotline and told them. I also wrote a statment. I am on suspension pending investigation. I will find out tomorrow whether or not I still have a job.
I am letting my mom stay with me because I don't want her on the streets. She told me that she was rushed to the hospital via Grady Ambulance and they asked her if she was faking her high blood pressure and her low blood sugar. She is diabetic and her blood sugar was in fact, pretty high. She spend the night in the hospital. They gave her aspirin in the ambulance and when the nurse took the iv out, she bled everywhere and the doctor told the nurse to change the sheets. The stupid nurse asked, "ugh, why?"
Stupid people.... really make me sick. So mom is stayin with me--unless I lose my job and we both end up on the streets again.
Also, I received an email from someone who saw my art on my Zazzle Gallery. They couldn't buy any of my work but wished to donate pictures to the cause so I will have them up shortly.
i'm sorry to hear. some people are such jerks. if i caught my finger in a door badly enough for it to bleed i'd be raising all sorts of hell too.

I used to have this friend who, when she got really injured in soccer or whatever, would say, 'HOLY.... MACKERAL!"
It was pretty hilarious. I'm sure they won't fire you if you act very meek and apologetic.
