How can you contribute in RN project?
We need fund, tools and equipments for our 2010 projects. We work at grassroot level, our volunteers go on field to train artists, artisans and victims of human trafficing with modern tools, techniques and product development assistance. Please visit Universal Giving website to see the equipments and funds we need for our various projects. We use 100% of your donation for all our philantropic activities as all our staffs volunteer their personal time. With your support, we will continue to make a positive difference in the life of underprivileged artists, artisans and victims of human trafficing together

If you have used art and craft tools in good working condition, please donate it to us. Those unused tools will help some artisan to earn their livelihood. You can also donate money to purchase art-kits and supplies for the artisans. Please ship your un-wanted art/craft tools and supplies (in good usable condition) to Renaissance Now, 41769 Trenouth Street, Fremont, Ca 94538.
