Brian Peterson, a Californian based artist, is doing something truly inspiring to give back to his community. Brain founded a project called “The faces of Santa Ana”. In this project, Brian gets to know members of the homeless community in his area, understand their background story, and paint their portraits. After finishing each portrait, Brain lets the subject of the painting to sign his portrait, and then he sells the homeless paintings. The profits from the sell goes right back as a donation to that homeless person, as funds to help him get back on his feet. Brian’s project is a great example of a good deed that is both helping to his surrounding, and inspiring at the same time.
