Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 17 February, 2009 : - - Long Beach, Ca -- All 4 the Kids announced today it will have an art show featuring work by top artists, including Steve Fawley and Daniel Coleman. All 4 the Kids is a new non-profit organization whose mission is to provide children of global action sports destinations with tangible items that will help enrich and save their lives.
As a 501© (3) organization (pending), All 4 the Kids was formed to operate with no overhead, so that each and every dollar raised will go straight to the children who are its focus.
