Johnna Crider is the Founder of Art4TheHomeless, an organization currently in the process of becoming a 501c3 Nonprofit, that unites artists of all venues to promote homeless awareness in the USA where the average age of a homeless American is 9 years old.
Johnna was once homeless at the ages of 9-11 and also during other times in her life. As an artist, she wanted to do something but at the time, all she had was her art, which blossomed into Art4TheHomeless.
In 2009, was honored by Czar Darius Adrik Salvo I with the title of Dame/Knight in the Imperial Chivalric Order of Kings of the Imperial Sovereign House of Kings for my dream to simply change the perception of homelessness in the USA and its a title that I am honored to use to help bring awareness to homelessness in the USA.
Art4TheHomeless and The Homeless Project will each receive 20% of all sales from my Etsy Shop: Ladie Jayes Designs.
Art4TH is and organiztion that I am setting up to unite artists of all venues to promote homeless awareness in the USA where the average age of a homeless American is 9 years old, and is in the process of becoming a 501c3 (saving up the $400 IRS Tax Exemption Fee)
The Homeless Project was founded in October 2010 to help bring support and awareness to the plight of homeless people. Artist HH Duke Michael David Peschka (and other worthy contributors) produces and sells portraits depicting homeless people in their living situations, with proceeds benefitting homeless people directly, as well as several non-profit homeless organizations.
HH Duke Michael' s portraits are oil on cardboard. Although The Homeless Project began in Austin, Texas, it has received international interest. The Homeless Project seeks to add its own unique effort to help aleviate homelessness around the world.
