Rise up LA! Join us as volunteers UNITE for the makeover of a classroom for underprivileged children. We're mobilizing to create the future we want to see!

3 days of commUNITY action with food, music, and fun, as we come together to create an inspiring space for kids in need.

Come 1 day or all 3 days, come a few hours or stay the day to volunteer for: painting, design, handyman work, decoration, or organizing books and toys.

Since our last brainstorm (http://www.meetup.com/Revolution-LA/events/233747131/), RevLA members have planned and strategized the makeover process and now we’re READY for the execution phase.

Our hardworking team have spent the last few weeks finishing the construction and electrical part of the project. We have pulled together donations, supplies and materials, and now we need your help to COMPLETE this grand vision!

Volunteers at the non-profit Urban Partners Los Angeles (https://uplosangeles.org) have dedicated the past 5 years to Without Limits, a free math program for inner city kids ages 6 to 11 years old. Now they're working to expand their program with free language classes.

It’s up to us to help TRANSFORM the basement classroom into a safe and colorful place for the kids to learn and grow.

JOIN us for this fun 3-day volunteer project; you’re welcome to come to one or all three days and volunteer your time for any of the work below.

FRIDAY, October 21 – Painting and Spray Painting.

SATURDAY, October 22 – Design, Decorations, Installation, Organizing Books & Toys.

SUNDAY, October 23 - Design, Decorations and Organization.

We're raising funds for the project via Crowdrise (https://www.crowdrise.com/help-fund-the-makeover-of-a-classroom-for-underprivileged-children/fundraiser/revolutionla), all donations are tax-deductible and go directly to benefit UPLA's Without Limits classroom.

The Creators project aims to create fundamental changes in our community, empowering the underserved through direct action. Get involved and help make a difference!
