Artists for Awareness, Inc., in conjunction with The Dirty Canteen, uses art as a tool to enrich the lives of Veterans.  While Artists for Awareness, Inc. is a young organization, we are eager to make a difference in our communities and in the lives of others. To ensure that we have the maximum effect on the most people possible, no persons affiliated with or working for Artists for Awareness, Inc. or any of its subsidiaries accepts a salary or any income of any kind from this organization. We feel that we should be the first to volunteer to help our communities before asking others to and to lead by example.
