100% of profits will be donated to Nurture The Creative Mind
Over a decade ago, I met a young man in my community named Amir Jackson who told me about his aspirations to start a nonprofit organization that allows the youth of our community to connect with the arts. As a money driven entrepreneur, I had a hard time understanding why anyone would dedicate their life to serving others without the possibility of becoming wealthy.
Fast forward to today, and this man is now one of the most respected members of our community. His foundation, called Nurture the Creative Mind, serves the youth of our community and supports a major arts movement that has swept our community. His foundation places street pianos in our downtown area that are painted by local artists and played by musicians of all backgrounds who are just passing by.
This foundation does not exclude any form of art. In it’s facility, it provides a professional grade recording studio for singers, musicians, and aspiring music producers. It also acts as an art gallery to sell the work created by the children. It’s not uncommon to see Amir in public with a hand full of youth learning photography techniques with professional camera equipment. From dance to installation art and everything in between, NCM is educating the youth of our community in a way that can not be done in a typical classroom setting. His students are given the opportunity to find an art form they love and have the confidence to pursue a life long career in the arts.
Long gone are the days of children being told to be a lawyer or a doctor. These children will become paid designers, photographers, digital artists, high end painters, musicians, graphic designers, teachers, sculptors, dancers, and community leaders. For this reason, I am donating all proceeds made by the sale of this sign to Nurture the Creative Mind so they can continue to purchase the equipment necessary to give these children the opportunity to love what they do... and do what they love.
