From Canvassing to Canvasses, MYD delivers

MYD Itself // Only in NY // Take Action

MYD got in touch with its artsy side this weekend.  We headed up to PS199X in the Bronx, also known as the Shakespeare School, to paint classroom canvasses as part of New York Cares Day.  We used stencils for the outlines then got to work painting.  Of course, we talked a lot of politics, Heather recruited people to phonebank, and we even met a lovely woman who told us she was a proud Democrat!  Best of all, we were treated to a delicious lunch courtesy of the school!

It feels so great to know our canvasses will be hanging in classrooms for years to come.  To see our amazing masterpieces, check out the slideshow below!

After you’ve done that, and are sufficiently jealous of the awesome time we had, you can sign up for our next community service event at the Bowery Mission.  Email Kim at for more info.

Special thanks to Heather, Ahmed, Jen and Darryl for coming out to help!
