I was going to burn down
the high school I went to.
Classrooms where I took standardized tests
had ethnic wall art and urban posters
off the streets
about hoping to have
low income kids…
OS GEMEOS CREATE GIANTS IN VANCOUVER
That dynamic duo, street artists Os Gemeos (Portuguese for the twins)turned six large silos in the industrial area of Granville Island,Canada into their distinctive characters. Each 75-foot-tall cylinder features a different character, dressed in vibrant colors and bold patterns.
It was unveiled on September 7th as part of Os Gemeos’ international series, Giants, their largest undertaking to date. The art project was organized by the Vancouver Biennale as part of their city-wide effort to convert urban landscapes into open air exhibitions across the city.
This kid here is Julian, he’s 2 years old now. He was tragically injured in a car accident at 6 months old, thanks to a drunk driver asshole. He’s been in a wheelchair ever since. The doctors he goes to now say they don’t have enough experience dealing with those injuries on such a young person. Shriner’s in Chicago offered a free evaluation, they just need to get and stay there which unfortunately costs a lot of money anyway. So there’s this fund going and even if you can’t donate yourself please just signal boost this and maybe it reaches people who can.
(I’m trying not to be mad as fuck but seeing funds for shit like racist cops and potato salad reaching thousands and this fund going so slow is making it really hard not to get absolutely livid and throw stuff around.)
Guys, signal boost the fuck out of this. This kid has a shot at free treatment, and they just need to money to get to the Shriners hospital.
