Sappi Fine Paper North America announced in September 2010 that SCAD Atlanta graduate student and Creative Director at Youth Photo Project Jessica Little had been awarded a grant from Sappi’s 11th Ideas that Matter — an annual, innovative grant program that transforms the creative ideas of designers into a powerful force for social good. The grant was used to fund a youth photography program within Covenant House, a shelter and ministry for homeless youth, and provided 40 Holga camera kits to residents in Atlanta and New York earlier this year. The photographic work of over 40 homeless youth, that are or were Covenant House residents over the last year, will be available for your donation this Saturday, November 19th in the Atlanta studio space of Raftermen, Inc., located at 256 Walker Street. SW, in Castleberry Hill, Atlanta, GA.
The event, and all proceeds raised by the youth’s photographs will benefit and honor Covenant House Georgia & New York during the month of November, which is the National Homeless Youth Awareness Month.
