Thank you for believing in Self Help Graphics & Art



SHG
Thank You For Supporting Us.
Dear Amig@s,

Thank you for believing in Self Help Graphics & Art. It’s because of your support and involvement that we continue to advance Latino culture through the arts. I am writing today to ask for your continued support.

It’s been an incredible year! After nearly 40 years, we moved to a new home in Boyle Heights, where a continued tradition of sharing culture and experience through art is finding new breath within a local renaissance. Our new 1st Street home is literally the first stop on the Metro Gold Line, providing even greater access to our comunidad. Self Help Graphics’ new home brings infinite opportunities for more partnerships and more arts-related activities in a city where budget cuts have decimated arts projects and arts in schools. At a time of great uncertainty in our nation, the need for creative expression – especially among our Latino youth – is more important than ever before.

Since our move, we have seen an overwhelming increase in requests for our services. This past year, Self Help Graphics served more than 10,000 people through a mix of programming for people of all ages, including professional artists, youth and families, and hosted special events such as our 38th Annual Día de los Muertos celebration – all of which we provide at little or no cost. Imagine what more we could do with your support.

Self Help Graphics cannot solely rely on funding from foundations, corporations or government in this economic climate—we need you. Help us to continue our critical role as a conduit of creativity for our community. Matisse said it takes courage to be creative--help us encourage our artists and youth by making a contribution NO MATTER WHAT SIZE or by joining the Boccalero Print Council (BPC) at a higher level--the BPC engages Latino art lovers, collectors and supporters and helps shape our future.

We know times are hard for everyone. We would be so grateful if you would make a commitment to strengthening the arts in our comunidad. Si no, pues, ¿Quién? Si no es ahora, ¿Cuándo?

There are certainly other ways to contribute, and we welcome your support at any level. For more information, please visit www.selfhelpgraphics.com.

With gratitude,



Self Help Graphics & Art

What can we do when we have many boring free time? How about try to get access to the online games? When we talk about the game, we need to talk about the WOW Gold. As the WOW is the world's most famous online game,all of us knows that we have to get the cheap swtor credits to save money !
