We've got the wall, we've got the publicity, we've got a DJ, we've got refreshments, we've got live tatooing and we have 13 graffiti crews ready to donate two days of their time to start painting next Friday morning in downtown Juarez - All we need is the paint! All we need is you!

We have gathered scores of young artists from across the violence-ridden city of Juarez, Mexico to join together and make a youth-led mural on a wall that has been donated by the city's art museum. Crews will spend two full days creating graffiti style-murals, with live djs, bboys and even live tatooing. In a city torn apart by violence, this is an amazing effort by young people to come together.

All we need is graffiti-quality spray paint for all 13 crews to make this happen.

We are working with "Making Graffity", a locally-owned store in Juarez that is donating all of the graffiti caps needed to make the paintings. We need to raise money for 150 spray cans for these 13 crews at $5 a can.

Here's what you get in return:

1 can/$5 or more will receive a digital photo of the event.
5 cans/$25 or more and we will mail you a print photo of the event signed "graffiti-style" by the crews.
The first ten people to donate 10 cans/$50 will support an entire crew, and we will mail you a signed, limited edition artwork created by the crew.
