“Helping Hands Over The Border Project”

September 28th, 2014 Meme from F&F set out to do an event in Tijuana Mexico. After Meme’s latest adventure to Tj, she decided she wanted to do some type of charity event for the youth of the city. Meme found help from a local Tj artist that goes by the name of Tfour.

Tfour found the location and helped organize by getting all the kids together for this event. System Krush is an organization helping spread the positive message of music to youth all the way in West Africa as well as world wide. System Krush was a physical sponsor for the “Helping Hands Over The Border Project”.

Thank you to our sponsors: Ironlak, System Krush, Lurk Hard, Bandit 1sm, Mahfia Tv, Low Card Magazine, Smog City, Saba Anna Swim wear. and everyone that donated to this event!

Crossing the border into Tj on foot while carrying all the donated goods. Meme hurt her knee messing around. Each person helped carry so much we were all rushing to get to the cabs and head to our hotel. Artist Beth Emmerich got very sick and was unable to help with the event the next day.

On this beautiful sunny Seattle afternoon, participating artists… 179, Merlot, Meme, Dime, Deity, Ksra, Erin Ashford and Jenn Ponci all came together and painted a mural at Mudbay finishing within 3 hours followed by a celebration dinner and drinks.Some of the girls hadn’t seen each other for over a year! The next day the girls took Meme to a skater-built skatepark under a bridge in an industrial area of the city.

The next activity filled day had us meeting with female street-artist No Bonzo</em> from Portland, OR. Enjoying a walk in the beautiful nature of the Pacific Northwest, we followed a daisy lined trail to a hidden wall where we painted.

That night it rained heavily, but we didn’t let that spoil our nighttime fun. We did a Few and Far spellout on this trackside. photo

In the morning it was all about preparing for our 3rd Anniversary art show later that evening. Our nails were done by MaryJane Cha at TopCoat. We also had our hair styled and make-up done.

After a crazy night of festivities we opened our crusty eyes still wearing last nights makeup and our hair glued in the same position it was slept on. We began the journey to Canada, hoping nothing would stop us from getting into Vancouver. It worked! Our friends from the North, SONE, ENSOE, THEME, took us to paint. But really we cracked clam jokes, laughing for hours, inspired by the use of clam juice in the Bloody Mary’s.

Day 2: In Canada found us painting under a bridge, without much opportunity for good photos, but you get the idea.
