This painting makes my heart happy. I am captivated by Elliot’s use of color and light. The red fox is my favorite animal in this work. Because he represents wisdom and firmness of purpose, he reminds me that I need to keep a determined mindset if I am to follow in Elliot’s footsteps and make a difference in the world.

This painting now hangs in a place of honor in my home. I love the colors and motion, the ninja in flight! Thank you for helping me to see people whom I used to ignore. The heart and intention behind your art has shown me that simple giving enriches life.

About

One Ninja At A Time

One day when I was riding in the car with my mom, I saw a homeless person and I felt bad. I asked my mom if I could give my money to the homeless person. She said that I could help in other ways. When I got home, I thought about how I could help.
I like to paint, and I love ninjas. I asked my mom about starting my own Etsy shop, and she said it could be a way to help.
The first weekend, I sold almost every one of my paintings.

Two months later, the editor of the Greensboro Voice saw my shop, bought a shirt, and sent a reporter to visit me. After the interview, the local news station here came to interview me.

I have visited a tent city in our town, where I met the people who I help. I am planning to visit the camp again in the next few weeks. It made me feel good to help.

The idea of being homeless horrifies me. I wish that there was no such thing as homelessness. If every one helped, homelessness would be gone. One Ninja At A Time.
