Let's PAINT... and a Raffle!

The week just started and already it's great! The first coat of primer went up on the old funeral home. We’ve gained three new Creative Collaborators. Thank you Busboys and Poets, Hair Cuttery, and ShelfGenie. We’re more than halfway to our goal with nine days left...and we have a new raffle!

Win a Two-Week Residency in Mount Rainier, MD

Anyone outside the DC metro area who donates $10 or more to the Citizen Paint Project is entered into a raffle for two weeks at the Washington Writer's Retreat plus a wellness package that includes a massage, a personalized yoga training session, and unlimited classes and performances at Joe’s Movement Emporium. Book anytime after September 15, 2012. Come check out this creative community for yourself and help us transform vacant into vibrant in the Gateway Arts District.

We know you have friends who would love Mount Rainier as much as we do. Help us find them... tweet, post, and share the new raffle. Only nine days left to back the Citizen Paint Project, get a chance at the prize, and see a street corner transform right before your eyes.

Thank you again and hope to see you on April 28!
