So Kyle and I just moved in together; Palms (near Culver City) to be exact. We had our first movie night last night and stumbled upon I Am (2011 film) on Netflix. Anybody else seen this documentary? With interviews & quotes from great thinkers of this world (Howard Zinn, Noam Chomsky, & the Dalai Lama to name a few), at the very least it’s a perspective-widening 78 minutes. It was yet again another sign that this community is on to something real, and what we’ve achieved/will achieve together has/will made/make this world better. All of our talents, love, and positive energy here helped (even if just for a little) make the lives of the homeless better, our relationships stronger, Friday nights more fun, and Camp Eayikes a reality. It’s been an honor to serve you all, and this is a little message to let y’all know WE STILL OUT HERE! I know it’s been quiet on the Donut front as of late, but you’re in our thoughts and we’re patiently waiting for the next chapter to begin. In the meantime, please head on over to, watch the video, give the campaign a read, and send some love to Ray & the crew. Peace be the journey friends! <3

It’s been a little while since we last posted, we have been doing some behind-the-scenes ground work for our community and future projects.  We want to make sure our vision is clear before we embark on this journey, and want to be able to share that with all of you.  We were very happy with how our first year of events went, and now it’s time to keep our feet moving!

As we briefly mentioned before, we are super excited for our next event this weekend at the LA Brewery Art Walk.   The bi-annual LA Art Walk at The Brewery in downtown hosts over 100 art, music, and tech showcases at the world’s largest artist-in-residence complex.  Centered around the infamous Brewery formerly owned by Pabst, the two-day event will bring in thousands of people to enjoy the arts, food, drinks, and good vibes.

We have a bunch of great artists coming out to showcase their work this weekend, including graphic designers, photographers, DJ’s, pop-up vendors, and a live band.

There is also some great news we would like to share with you about the future of The Donuts, so come join us as we create a space for great people in our community to share their arts!

Check out full event info and artist lineup HERE.

… and as always, free donuts :)
