It’s not everyday we hear good news about Chris Brown, but this week he flexed his good karma muscles when he teamed up with renowned neo-artist Romero Britto (he designed that colorful Absolut Vodka print ad a few years back.) to paint a mural for the Symphonic Love Foundation’s Best Buddies Day, a nonprofit that raises awareness and employment opportunities for people with developmental disabilities. All artwork designed by Chris, Romero and the Best Buddies participants will be donated to promote the charity’s message of acceptance of those with disabilities.
Chris’ charity, Symphonic Love Foundation has teamed up with countless non-profits since its launch last November. The main goal of the foundation is to “create programs and partner with non-profits in two focus areas: Art and Love.” The charity has so far partnered with Elton John AIDS Foundation, The Debbie Allen Dance Academy, Toys for Tots and the Jenesse Center. The R & B star writes on the foundation’s website that the inspiration for Symphonic Love Foundation was his mother’s efforts as a director of a nonprofit children’s center in his hometown of Tappahannock, VA.
Speaking of art…
I found this cool mural not to far from where I live on the wall of a church. So I wanted to share the love and inspiration. Happy Easter, Everyone!! XOXO
