The growing community in the advocacy of sharing blessings through art workshops and free painting sessions is progressively growing as many young professionals, artists and youth are joining for the act of volunteerism.
It started with the simple art workshop earlier this year aiming to teach street children around Metro Manila basic shapes, color mixing and doodling. The volunteers wanted to do more of this activities even without talent fee, thus Creative Street is born.
Creative Street was also introduced on Steemit by @aalagenesis and @deveerei to raise funds through posting blogs. The rewards are 100% donated to the group to buy art materials. Eventually, more and more Steemians and collective good-hearted persons noticed the group and begun helping by donating SBDs and Steems, resteeming and promoting the posts.
