INSIDE LEBRON JAMES’ $23 MILLION LA MANSION

As you might have heard, if you don’t live in a remote mountain cabin with no internet, Lebron James has taken his talents to Los Angeles.  Lebron (yes, I’m going to refer to him by his first name) is arguably the most popular athlete on the planet, and one of the richest, too.  His Nike deal is rumored to be worth a billion dollars, and the NBA contract he just signed is for $153 million over four years;  that breaks down to about half a million dollars per game, or ten grand per minute.  What kind of house does a guy like this buy when he moves to one of the most luxurious cities in the world?  A pretty nice one.

STREET SYMPHONY UNITES, HEALS DISENFRANCHISED LA COMMUNITIES WITH MUSIC

Street Symphony is a Los Angeles-based nonprofit that “places music at the center of social justice.” It does this by bringing together musicians and individuals living with homelessness and incarceration, who also often struggle with mental and physical illness and addiction. This endeavor was founded by Los Angeles Philharmonic Violinist Vijay Gupta and the musicians who participate are both world-class and burgeoning local professionals.

Many organizations have a physical and/or conceptual hub or center that they build themselves up around. For LA 501 (c)3 non-profit organization Art Division, this hub, foundation, and permanent base is their art library. The library currently contains between 8,000 to 10,000 books and resources and is still growing—they frequently get calls from people who have art book collections that need to find a new home.
