Our Purpose:


To use micro-philanthropy to create local events involving the arts (fine arts, music, film, culinary, etc.) that provide direct, positive impact into the daily lives of strangers and the community at large.

community as a verb

“True beauty is born through our actions and aspirations and in the kindness we offer to others.”


“I say to myself that I shall try to make my life like an open fireplace, so that people may be warmed and cheered by it and so go out themselves to warm and cheer.”

"Strange, isn't it? Each man's life touches so many other lives. When he isn't around he leaves an awful hole, doesn't he?"
