Drawing Hope is a charitable organization that – through art – serves survivors of abuse and other life struggles. Drawing Hope helps survivors connect with their own strength, see their beauty and embrace their freedom.
Drawing Hope is the organization behind a number of David’s projects: Points with Purpose (PWP), Freedom Woman, and the portfolio of charitable works David has been creating over the last decade as a Celebrity Artist. These projects have a number of things in common. They all aim to raise awareness of globally relevant issues; educate about topics that are not easy to talk about; inspire people to help each other to survive, heal and live well; and motivate action that – on a global scale – will create change.
In his work at Drawing Hope, David not only creates the artwork, he also envisions new ways to understand people’s life experiences, architects supportive communities, conceptualizes educational approaches and speaks at conferences.

Team True Beauty
With Team True Beauty Shantel hopes to continue to help those struggling feel supported and to spread the message that “what matters is what’s in your heart, what your goals are and what kind of life you want to lead.” The One Tree Hill star believes if we all unite with one another, we can all make a difference in each other’s lives. “ The more support someone has and is surrounded by, when they struggle, the better. No one is alone; it has affected every generation and it’s time for all of us to stand together.”
