Immediate Funding Need

*THIS PROJECT HAS BEEN FUNDED AND IS CURRENTLY INSTALLED AT THE INTERSECTION OF 10th and PIEDMONT. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!* Still Too Busy To Hate - 10th & Piedmont Building Wrap - Fundraiser for Local Atlanta Charities


In the ‘60s, Atlanta was dubbed “The City Too Busy To Hate.” Today, we seek to continue Atlanta’s decades-old commitment by standing up against intolerance and hate in all its forms. In the current political and social climate, we believe it is important to proclaim, as a city and community, that all individuals are deserving of love, hope, and protection. We have designed an art installation to stand testament to our commitment to create a world in which everyone is welcomed and celebrated. Installed on the historic corner of 10th & Piedmont, every heart in the wall will be filled by the name of a person or group that we love and are still too busy to hate. This building wrap will be unveiled at a special ceremony with speakers hosted at 10th and Piedmont on October 7th at 5-7pm (and will be up through the first quarter of 2018). 

The following local charities have been selected to receive donations from this project:

Trans Housing Atlanta Program

Lost-N-Found Youth

Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights

The Link Counseling Center

The Atlanta Women’s Foundation

We want everyone to be a part of contributing to this artwork with their creativity and support. Donors who give $100 or more will be able to contribute by leaving a personal message in one of the 342 hearts, including their name and who they are too busy to hate. Your contribution will remain an integral part of this art installation through the end of the first quarter 2018. After your donation, we will email you a mock-up of your personal heart(s) for you to approve and share. While this art installation, by its existence alone, will send a strong message of acceptance and support, we seek to make a more concrete impact.

Every dollar raised by this fundraiser will be used for the artwork or given to local charities in Atlanta to affect positive change.
