Later this month, Shane Grammer of SG studios is taking a team of artists to Svay Pak, Cambodia to paint murals with girls who were either rescued from or in danger of being forced into prostitution.

He is throwing a fundraising art show on April 8, 2010 that will include a silent auction of some of his work, along with the work of Aman, Jenvy Fox, and many others.  There will also be musical interludes by Dusty Brown, special guests, cocktails, food and a good vibe.

Sacramento Filmmaker Deon Taylor Doing Big Things

Dumbworld has to admit, it was a pretty cool feeling to see the commercials for Sacramento Filmmaker Deon Taylor’s Nite Tales on BET.  I haven’t got a chance to check it out yet, but just the fact that somebody from Sacramento, who shoots his stuff locally got that far is very inspiring.

In case you missed last week’s Sacramento Bee article on Deon Taylor, here it is.

Kevin Johnson Challenges Sacramento Residents to Give a Minimum of 10 Hours of Volunteer Service this Year and Dumbworld is Taking the Challenge

Yesterday, Kevin Johnson launched his “Volunteer Sacramento” program.  The goal of the program is to recruit thousands of residents to give at least 10 hours of service for the year.

Johnson told a story about being a child and driving back from Folsom with his grandfather every weekend.  Everytime there was a person out of gas or with a flat tire on the side of the road, his grandfather would stop and help.  This instilled in Kevin the importance of being a good neighbor.  And it is in this spirit that he hopes Sacramento will become the #1 city in the state of California when it comes to service hours. 

You can read about the launch of the campaign here and also see the video where Kevin Johnson tells the story about his grandfather.

Not sure how I will spend my 10 hours, but I have taken the first step and signed up at handsonsacramento.org.  You can go there for more information and to sign up for volunteer projects.  I will keep you updated on my volunteer efforts.

Dumbworld Quote of the Day

“The greatest achievers compete with themselves more than
against others – and that’s how they become great. They
dare themselves to conquer one obstacle after another, and
they do. Those who think success is dependent on other’s
poor performance don’t understand the art of rising above
oneself.”
