The Beginning of the End


StART is a nonprofit organization devoted to being the end of poverty through means of the arts. In 2012, the hundred richest people earned enough money to end world poverty four times, yet to this day, we still face the wrath of poverty. Children and adults are dying every minute due to the poverty in which they live.

By Combining the forces of artists and sponsors, I hope to gain enough money to StART the beginning of the end of poverty indefinitely.
