"Pull Up Your Pants" for The Thorpe Foundation
Pburnt Productions is excited to assist the Thorpe Foundation, with their efforts of bringing the message of empowerment and education to youth across the country through their first non profit peace titled, “Changing The Tide”. The Thorpe Foundation, began the “Pull Up Your Pants” campaign in 2011, utilizing a combination of mentorship, public appearances and the relationship to hip hop to reach adolescents struggling with which direction to take their lives.
Through theories of empowerment , education and most importantly the knowledge of self , the Thorpe Foundation is looking to enable the youth of today to find their voice to create positive growth. Through a series of recognizing historical and present day leaders, examples of community tragedies and dissecting Black on Black crime, The Thorpe Foundation leaves us wondering how we will make a change.
This project is filled with the theme of humanity and the prevention of leaving any child with the lack of resources to define their personal success.
