The idea of The Paint it Forward Project came to me last year after completing a mural that I was commissioned to paint in order to cover graffiti. It's been demonstrated over and over again that once a mural is on a wall, it no longer gets "tagged" with graffiti. The goal of the project is to collaborate on the design and creation of two new murals in the Mission District of San Francisco, CA. Paint it Forward will be a true collaboration between artists who bring very different styles and content to their work.

The Paint It Forward project is about empowering our youth and beautifying our neighborhood. I will be engaging young "taggers" who have the desire to be true artists and make their mark on the world around them. If given the proper mentoring and support, these dynamic young people will develop into successful public artists, creating dynamic murals, feeling a sense of pride, belonging and responsibility to their city.

I'd like to raise $5,000 in order to pay these kids for their time, for the materials, and for a huge party to celebrate the completion of the murals. Please help me make a difference in my community.

Thank you so much,

April Berger
