GIVING BACK too!

ARTISTS GIVE BACK:  "Helping Burgeoning Artists Help themselves and others":The concept of Philanthropic Marketing was the premise of Ms. Busig-Kohn’s participation and presentation back in 1995, when invited to The State Of The World Forum, by then President Mikhail Gorbachev.  Advocating that all primary brands “identify” with charities was, in fact,  her idea.

 Since that time, thousands of celebrities have also added their support to this concept, and thousands of fundraising projects were enhanced by their participation. 

 In contrast, and substantiated by the NEA, statistics prove that the majority of visual artists in America today, live well below the poverty line.  However, our statistics prove that when artists establish their own “philanthropic brand”, it enhances their sales and underscores success in their field.

Shakira’s Barefoot Foundation

Thorn/DNA Foundation

 "Art Speaks": “Inspiring change, with every brush stroke”, it is the mission of the Art4Good Foundation to enlighten the public to the real value of art and creativity.  Art is subjective, yet it requires no translator.  Art speaks in every language, and can be utilized as a strategic "tool" to engage interest and commonality via education, availability, and exchange of ideas worldwide.  Art provides good will, emanating from the United States, throughout the entire world; not unlike the popularity of our best exports of music, films and automobiles, we intend, in the near future, to focus and enhance our mission to "export culture", sharing the works of international artists, beyond our borders.

 “Art heals.”:  Founding Chairperson, Wendie Busig-Kohn suffers from Systemic Lupus, a crippling disease that was diagnosed in 1992, when doctors told her to “get her affairs in order”.  After several strokes and seizures, she chose to eliminate most, if not all of her prescriptions and discovered that when creating, the left brain shifting to the right, her pain would disappear, if only for a little while, when painting.  As a result, she became an advocate for “Art and Healing” and published a book of the same title.

 ART4GOOD Foundation, Inc. provides a multitude of social media outlets for burgeoning artists to showcase their works, at NO cost. ART4GOOD also sponsors “The Artist In You” blog, where artists can engage others in the inspiration behind  their works, and enjoy reading additional creative posts, including, but not limited to poetry and music. 

To date, we have also published seven ART and ART/Poetry books, to enhance the stature of burgeoning artists as "published artists".  Costs for publication have been paid entirely by ART4GOOD Foundation, Inc., and proceeds from sales are donated to support ARTS in SCHOOLS programs.  Previously, we sponsored several underpriviledged children to attend Summer Art Conservatory classes in Palm Springs.

 ART4GOOD has also created videos to showcase new artists' works, showcased on The Artist In You TV Channel on You Tube.   Art4Good created The Artist In You TV channel on You Tube, which offers thousands of videos for the public to find including educational, creative, and inspirational videos along with full length movies and music videos too.

In summary, it is the mission of the ART4GOOD Foundation, Inc. to communicate, inspire, and support the ever changing world of art,

via education by visualization and participation.

Honoring the Memory of Daniel Pearl this Thanksgiving and Hanukkah Season

Remembering Daniel Pearl by honoring his legacy and vision begins today!Daniel pearl

 


Daniel Pearl was kidnapped  while working as the South Asia Bureau Chief of The Wall Street Journal. He had gone to Pakistan as part of an investigation into the alleged links between Richard Reid (the "shoe bomber") and Al-Qaeda.

He was subsequently beheaded by his captors. Daniel Pearl (October 10, 1963 – February 1, 2002) was a journalist with American and Israeli citizenship. He was kidnapped by Pakistani militants and later murdered by Al-Qaeda in Pakistan.

This week, we hope you will come together with us to honor him:

The Daniel Pearl Foundation was formed in memory of journalist Daniel Pearl to further the ideals that inspired Daniel's life and work.

The foundation's mission is to promote tolerance and understanding internationally through journalism, music and dialogue.

 

His courage and his legacy live on.

BECAUSE WE CAN!


Jon_bon_jovi_

I remember the first time I met Jon Bon Jovi almost like it was yesterday! 

I boarded the plane in Los Angeles, on my way to New York, via New Jersey, and shared the first class cabin with a group of very friendly musicians.  Blushing, now, I recall asking them where they were from, and then asked if they performed all around the State of New Jersey.  Good hearted fellas they were, only slightly bemused that I had no idea how successful and famous they already were at that time!

I did, later, become a huge fan when "Who Says You Can't Go Home" became almost a personal anthem for me.  I became an even bigger fan, as I watched the path of philanthropy that Jon followed, then lead and inspired others to do the same.

The last time I met Jon, was backstage at the World Music Awards in Los Angeles.  By then, I knew his music, admired and respected his focus to give back, and also noticed that we were "dressed like twins" in our black leathers!  

Jon Bon Jovi may have earned his initial recognition as the front man of a glam rock band, but let's take a few moments to realize his overall impact in the world today!

Here is a list of charitable organizations that Jon has supported through the years, according to Look To The Stars.org : 

Have YOU heard about Jon Bon Jovi Soul Kitchen?  Folks pay what they can, when they can, but every soul is served good food.  He rocks, doesn't he?

So, how can YOU help Jon help others?

Why should we help Jon help others?

BECAUSE>>>WE>>>CAN!

ART4GOOD Foundation is currently hosting a HUGE on-line Auction!

There is something for everyone, and net proceeds will be donated, directly to the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation, via CrowdRise!

(psst!  you can make a direct donation now, or any time here!)

 "...Love can move mountains...."  Sing along?
