The AK47 foundation is a non profit in memoriam of Karen Loving. A woman whose purpose in life was to uplift all of the lives she came in contact with. A woman who chose to overcome the obstacles she faced in life with a smile and sense of tenacity. Someone who chose to not only be undefeated but to become the very weapon used to counter the darkness that threatened her, she was successful. Very appropriately nicknamed AK47 by the youth in her life.
We are committed to uplifting the lives of young people in the black community, using art. Focusing on those who have been brought up in damaged homes, those with parents dealing with substance abuse and those simply lost with no sense of direction. Our purpose is to break down the walls and barriers built by the chains of negativity and circumstance, to allow the light of every single young adult to shine through. We believe in every broken person lies a warrior and that brokenness is the tool to create men and women who are and will be our future leaders, trend setters and world changers. All it takes is vision, direction, a sense of who you are, who your heart tells you to be and most importantly WHOSE you are. All proceeds will go to several cancer research foundations and non profits committed to assisting single mothers and women escaping abuse.
