Make a difference in the lives of DC Artists
Words Beats & Life is an 18-year-old non-profit organization that has provided in-person hip-hop programming not only in the Washington, DC area, but also abroad. Due to the nature of our in-person instruction, the coronavirus pandemic has adversely affected our ability to operate. At present, our youth programming, which we offer free to area youth has been cancelled.
Additionally, our annual fundraiser - The Fresh Ball - has been postponed. We are working through the effects of COVID-19.As an organization, we have consistently provided working artists opportunities to teach, create, and lead in the presentation of arts and culture in Washington D.C. and beyond. Whether you are one of the hundreds of thousands of people that have benefited from the time, dedication, and creative brilliance of our artists, or a friend of a friend who has, we are asking you to invest in our artists.
Your gift will help provide immediate financial support so they can cover housing costs, purchase food, and other essential supplies. Invest in the safety and health of some of our city’s most important and impactful citizens. You can be the difference in ensuring they can return to work, serving our community and our youth.
In the first 24 hours our goal is to raise $1,000. Every dollar makes a difference and every person is generous.
