The Graffiti of War Joins Forces With National Security Leadership Foundation and Celebrate the Military Child
August 17th, 2011 - The National Security Leadership Foundation (NSLF) and Celebrate the Military Child (CtheMC), two separate organizations dedicated to providing alternative support services for military families, have agreed to form a partnership with The Graffiti of War Project. Although the Graffiti of War Project’s primary objective is to support and advocate for military service-members around the world, they also recognize that forming partnerships with organizations which also focus on the military families could only prove beneficial to their overall mission. As such, Graffiti of War is excited to be forming a partnership with the teams at NSLF and Celebrate the Military Child. Graffiti of War plans to support these outstanding organizations by including them in the National Art Gallery Tour, where CtheMC and NSLF will be able to reach out to military families and spread the word about their services.
August 12th, 2011 - The Graffiti of War Project announces that they will be featuring the amazing and award-winning photography of Zoriah.

Zoriah has been honored with numerous awards for his photojournalism skills—for example, the grand prize in the highly sought-after Photo Philanthropy Activist Awards (2009) and a rating of #6 in the Top Ten Photojournalists of All Time (2009) by Digital Photo Basics and some of the major news
corporations that have commissioned Zoriah’s work include BBC News, CNN, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek and many others. The Graffiti of War Project is more than honored to feature an artist of such caliber as Zoriah, who has been a loyal supporter of The Project and its team members.
