DescriptionThe Global Paint for Charity seeks individuals, strongly committed to our vision and mission, to participate in the leadership of our organization. The Global Paint for Charity, Inc. (AKA "GPC" or "Global Paint") is another notable non-profit organization headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia with a brilliant plan focused on securing the future of our children and their environments through recycling unused architectural paint for construction, rejuvenation and beautification of schools, churches, orphanages, hospitals and family homes in urban communities around the world. Since 2010, the organization works together with commercial businesses, residential households and other not-for-profit organizations in an effort to recycle, repackage, and distribute unwanted paint throughout the world. To date, over 120,000 gallons of paint has been distributed to targeted communities in 18 developing countries in the Caribbean, Central America, the Middle East and Africa. Most of the paints are from major top brands including Akzonobel, PPG, Ralph Laurent, Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams, Valspar to site a few. The distributed paint has a market value of $4.5 million which made it one of the largest donations of foreign Aid to the developing countries without the assistance and support from the U.S. Government. Together, we bring hope, color, happiness, pride, encouragement, we uplift the spirit of many underserved urban families living in slum areas and poor environmental conditions, and put smiles on many faces in different continents one gallon at a time. While there may be more pressing issues in developing countries than the facade of a wall, a classroom or a building, when you really think about it, you may realize that the right color in a room can truly change the ambiance of a place and the attitudes of those who inhabit it. It's also an incubator for bacteria, disease, germs, mold and poor sanitation.
