Fresh Words Market Partners With Lift To Help Fight Poverty Through Art

Socially Responsible Art Company Launches Collaborative Artwork To Assist Americans In Need

 
PRLog - Jan. 16, 2013 - LOS ANGELES (January 16, 2013) – Fresh Words Market, a socially-conscious modern art company, has partnered with the LIFT campaign to offer an exclusive original print with 100% of the proceeds benefitting the non-profit’s efforts to eradicate U.S. poverty.

A signed, limited edition Be Fearless (http://www.freshwordsmarket.com/lift) poster created by artist, mother and social entrepreneur, Rebecca Peragine, is now on sale with all proceeds going to LIFT, a growing humanitarian movement to combat poverty and expand opportunity for all people in the United States. Over its 13-year history, LIFT has helped more than 70,000 individuals and families chart a path to get out and stay out of poverty.

“We are incredibly grateful for this expression of giving from Fresh Words Market.  At LIFT, our clients are very resilient people.  No matter what life hits them with, they press forward.  They are, in a word, ‘fearless’ and they inspire us to be fearless every day,” says Patience Peabody, LIFT’s national Director of Communications.

LIFT’s mission is to help community members achieve economic stability and well-being by working one-on-one to find jobs, securing safe and stable housing, making ends meet through public benefits and tax credits, and obtaining quality referrals for services like childcare, education and healthcare.

Fresh Words Market and LIFT recognize that poverty is an ever growing issue – one that is pressing, but not impossible to overcome,” said Rebecca Peragine, artist and founder of Fresh Words Market. “With the encouraging message, we hope to inspire people to be strong while transforming the lives of families in need.”

The simple yet modern 11” x 14” print depicts birds in flight with the words “Be Fearless” which echoes the organization’s mission to instill utmost courage in the community during life’s hardships and rise above poverty.    

Prints are available for $30 on both the Fresh Words Market and LIFT websites. For more information on Fresh Words Market and LIFT, please visit www.freshwordsmarket.com and www.liftcommunities.org
