a Non Profit Arts Collective

Life Preservers Project was founded in 2009 with the sole mission to raise funds and awareness through the arts for the Survivorsof Human Trafficking in the NYC Metro Area.
We host events and shows and collaborate with musicians, performance artists, photographers, fine artists and street artists. We have been blessed to have several talented individuals participate in our Annual June Event as well as truly generous patrons and sponsors. This is a group project and could not be done without my Board of Directors, Friends and the Artists.

We collaborated with Operation Back Pack for the Annual Event this past June. We raised over $25000 for Operation Backpack https://www.voa-gny.org/operation-backpack and GEMS-Girls www.gems-girls.org 

Over 20 well known street artists and fine artists contributed back packs to this project.

The Life Preserver Photo Project -2010

We went around NYC with my Life Preserver and asked people to pose with it. We explained our cause and answered questions about Human Trafficking in the NYC Metro area and handed out information.
