Art Through Pod Project

We were recently introduced to this amazing organization in Sacramento that provides the homeless with shelter from the elements, a bed to sleep in that isn't made of concrete and most importantly, a sense of dignity that many have lost. The Art-through-Pod Project is a community driven effort to help create, build and decorate shelters for the homeless in their community.

The idea is simple.. create a warm, lightweight and mobile place for someone to call home, while sharing artwork that adorns the community. Repurposing, upcycling, fundraising or donations.. materials are all around us!

Their second pod was inspired by a Natural Life camper... we're so honored!

They delivered it to Betty, who is 65-years-old and lives on the streets. It took 2 days...6 hours of walking the neighborhood to find her!

She was super excited about her new home! Their favorite part of this giveaway was Betty sitting up as straight as she could in her pod and the pride beaming from her face.

Each pod costs around $250 and they're looking to build 10 more pods before the start of the 2016 holiday season.

With so much positive feedback, they've made plans to expand this project by building even more Art-through-Pods so they can continue to lift up the homeless community.

Monetary donations of any size are now being accepted. Together we can make a difference... Gofundme Page here!

    Have a wheel chair if you need it. Have lots of steel pipe if you need it, various sizes. Have a pile of
    used half inch plywood. Have an extra $100 if you need that to. Have some paint, don’t know if
    you know it, but they give paint away at the city hazardous drop off site on Fruitridge.
    Have shop space in Elk Grove with arc welder, grinders, vices, etc..
