Artists Making a Difference is a community initiative that organizes and provides resources for the creation of murals at schools, community centers, and shelters around the Metro Atlanta area. The murals are created by selected local artists who want to give back to their community. The goal of the initiative is to inspire the kids at the participating schools, community centers, and shelters. The Awesome Atlanta grant would go toward producing two murals for the laundry area of the Gatewood Ronald McDonald House ("RMH"). The murals will practically serve as marker for the families staying at the RMH that cannot locate the laundry room in the garage. Spiritually, the murals will serve as source of inspiration, comfort, and uplifting for the parents who are staying there because their child is receiving life saving treatment at Emory Hospital.
