About Art4TheHomeless
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 johnnacrider@att.net

I am sitting here just thinking of where Art4TH needs to go. I want to make it work for everyone and am not quite sure how.

Art4TH Zine features homeless help agencies by using the arts--artwork, photography, writing and poetry, and music. I am doing well with the zine but would like to have more writers!!

The Homeless Network hasn't really been noticed yet, but it does help those who have been on the site so I want to encourage you to check it out. It has info on your rights, shelters, medical care, food, and much more.

The blog, (here) is doing great. I am almost up to $11.00!!!! When I get to $100 I will split it up between homeless shelters (10 of them) and I thank each of my readers, and NuTang commenters for that!

I am starting to do well on Zazzle--that is my online art gallery. Anyone can buy my art and I give ALL my profits to the homeless. My first payout was with PayPal but since my password doesn't work I can't get to the $3.00 and change but now they have the option of writing a check and I can substitute a homeless shelter for my address :)

I also have a Squidoo lens or a few but am not sure how to work with those just yet. I am still learning. I am also in the market for a new job--I know, so is everyone else. I have a job, but I don't get many hours.

Also have a MySpace so if any one wants to add me feel free!!

The New Year is upon us and my number one resolution is to make Art4TheHomeless well known. I am working on promotional--hand painted stuff to post all over the city because I can't afford Kinko's-- ideas. I also have Twitter so is you want to follow Art4TH go to

Without Art4Th, I would have no purpose in life. This is what I want to do with my life--my favorite thing is art and I have a heart for the homeless. So let's do this yall! Art4TH is nothing without YOU.

sometimes to get things going like making more people know of ur zine is to make more new friends and hopefully u will get to know someone who can help u out to promote.
