About the Global Paint for Charity
The Global Paint project was created to give each person in developing countries and those in need in the United States, we serve the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of their shelter through every gallon of recycled paint. Through our efforts, we strive to protect the environment, change lives, beautify and transform communities throughout the world. Since 2010, we have collected more than 200,000 gallons of paint and redistributed more than 160,000 gallons to help with renovations and rejuvenation of family homes, homeless shelters, basic schools, churches, orphanages, and hospitals in targeted communities around the world and in many major cities right here in the U.S. and the fair market value of such donation is 4.6 million U.S. dollars.
All around the world, we can notice the immediate need of colors to bring hope and happiness in poor communities. It’s estimated that 80 percent of the world’s homes and schools face the dreary reality of unpainted walls in the underprivileged communities, and more than 70 million children have never had access to a painted classroom. While there may be more pressing issues in developing countries than the facade of a neglected wall, dusty classroom or a building, we believe that the right color in their rooms, and classrooms can truly change the ambiance and atmosphere of their environment and their livelihood.
Thanks to our program success, we have donated paint to support our major projects in Liberia, Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, Ghana, Kenya, Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti, Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Guyana and Jamaica. We still have a lot more work to do to be able to bring colors, hope, unity, peace and happiness to many other regions around the world. While getting people and businesses to donate paint isn’t a problem but collecting, mixing, repackaging and shipping the paint requires lot of funding. With just a small monetary donation from people like you and a little help from the corporations and private firms, we can make a real difference to better livelihoods around the world and help eradicate the causes and effects of poverty and sanitation solution. Your donation can provide buckets for repackaging the paint, cover transportation and shipping costs, or life-changing opportunities like supporting our micro-finance program. With your help, we can paint the world one gallon of paint at a time.
Global Paint for Charity is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, your monetary contributions and donations are tax-deductible.
