Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) August 23, 2012
No More Poverty and its co-founders Dr. Michael Omidi and Julian Omidi support the creativity of Dandelion Wishes and its director Lesley Glenn. The charity Dandelion Wishes uses therapeutic art to help the victims of violent crime and trauma to express themselves, develop self-worth, and transform their lives for the better. The organization’s current outreach efforts are focused on the San Bernardino Juvenile Detention Center and a sober-living home in Riverside County.
“The devastation inflicted on the lives of the poor and victimized is profound, and often mysteriously hidden. Helping Dandelion Wishes to bring understanding and healing to afflicted women and children, in our local community and internationally, is one of the missions of No More Poverty,” says Dr. Omidi, charity co-founder.
Dandelion Wishes evolved from a personal story of redemption, where founder and director, Lesley Glenn discovered healing from her pain and a new passion for life through painting and self-expression. And now, that is exactly what she offers and teaches others – how to access the healing and transformative aspects of art and creativity. With a heart for social justice at all levels, Glenn uses art because it transcends all languages, cultures and economic conditions. She has taken Dandelion Wishes to impoverished children and women in Nicaragua and provides healing arts workshops in prisons, juvenile detention centers, women’s shelters, and rehabilitation centers.
