Second Chance Ambassadors

Artist Gilbert Young Support The Atlanta Bailout

The Atlanta Bailout is fast becoming a nationally recognized initiative. Internationally acclaimed

artists Gilbert Young has decided to help DCMO orchestrate more Bailouts. By donating 80% of the proceeds of his special addition Second Chance series to Don’t Count Me Out to support the Atlanta Bailouts and retreats, Gilbert Young has boldly used his art as an innovative medium for awareness. 

The city of Atlanta is rich with new development and corporations springing up ever constant.

Atlanta is the cultural center of the Southeast and influences national and international culture. In this thriving metropolitan, art has massive power to move people to social change.

Former Mayor Kasim Reed and Judge Terrinee Gundy have changed the social justice paradigm by implementing bail reform in the City of Atlanta and Municipal Court respectively. Don’t Count Me Out, non-profit 501 C-3, has successfully assisted men released by Judge Gundy on signature bond for Father’s Day 2017 & 2018 and Thanksgiving 2017 to make positive lifestyle changes. With partners The Gateway Center and Hosea Feed the Hungry, DCMO has successful served 200 family members of the men bailed out.

We ask you to assist us to identify potential corporations who will become Second Chance Ambassadors, corporations who would donate to the DCMO Bailouts by accepting and displaying a special addition Second Chance series original.
