No matter the environment artistic people will find ways to express themselves. On stage, through writing, creative movement, or visual display, all are avenues used on a daily bases by artists. The dedicated ones will study their craft. They will attend classes, read books, and learn the business aspect of their chosen field. The result is financial success. An important part of financial success is literacy.
Literacy means being able to read and write. Many children who live in underprivileged communities often lack the necessary resources for growth. If those disadvantages are still in place by the time they reach adulthood, then their understanding of the written word is very limited. Those restrictions can lead to feelings of doubt, frustration, and the desire to give up on goals.
Performing Artists Online Magazine believes that giving up on a goal is unacceptable. Since 2008 the company has made a commitment to support literacy organizations. Currently the magazine provides assistance through two programs; Your Journey Begins With One Step, and Literacy Is A Lifestyle.
This program helps companies & individuals find organizations that need funding. It also provides insightful tips on the giving process. To learn more click here.
