Click on link above to watch the video. Sorry that I couldnt get the actual video on here.
This is just something that I came across thanks to my new friend Bianca. I know you may think that this is not our usual topic of discussion or maybe you think it doesn't fall in line with our movement but it does believe it or not because this sh*t is not COOL! This isnt something that I can just overlook so I had to post something about it. Whatever feeling or action that this brings out of you, please put that feeling into play and help to make people more aware.

The LAx Paperboys started off in 2004 as early adopters of a budding creative renaissance in the heart of South Central, Los Angeles. Originally known as a clothing line created by Gavin "Mizzle" McNeill to uplift young like-minded individuals to embrace their circumstance and strive beyond with sincere ambition, the LAx Paperboys became well known for producing some of the hottest live shows and special events created to promote the clothing, the music and spread their messages of positivity. The young activists became well known for these events along with the popularity of the famed "I Love Cali" tee shirt. After building a name working with artists such as Dom Kennedy, U-N-I and Pac Div, the Paperboys soon established LAXPAPERBOYS.COM as a COOL Lifestyle blog created to capture the history that was being made and spread the word globally.
In August of 2008, the Lax Paperboys and Life & Times (L&X) Creative Agency collectively established JBC., The JUST BE COOL. Campaign as an effort to redefine COOL and empower the urban demographic. At the core of JBC., lives a COOL mentality that has grown from hard work and a positive, progressive frame of mind. Inspired by classic Los Angeles culture and the work ethic of the historic “paperboy,” this campaign is the foundation of what is now JBC. Global. Using music, merchandise and creative marketing, the mission behind JBC. Global is to spread messages of peace, unity and progress to its global audience and co-create a New World Culture.
Since inception, The JUST BE COOL Campaign has built a solid presence amongst the LA music scene. This lifestyle brand has been embraced amongst a 13-30 age demographic and has had the privilege of playing an early role in what has been referred to as a cultural renaissance. Cultivating strong relationships with the young talent that is at the forefront of this revolution, this campaign has been identified, established and endorsed by many young, like-minded influencers such as local acts J*DaVeY, OverDoz. and Polyester The Saint to name a few.
…A vision that involves creating a lifestyle brand that raises consciousness and is fueled by the individual who seeks progress despite his circumstances. This philosophy has become the backbone of the JUST BE COOL. Global movement. Work hard, stay positive and BE COOL.

Philanthropy - derives from Ancient Greek, meaning "to love people". Philanthropy is the act of donating money, services, time and/or effort to support a socially beneficial cause, with a defined objective and with no financial or material reward to the donor. In a more general sense, philanthropy may encompass any altruistic activity intended to promote good or improve human quality of life. One who practices philanthropy may be called a philanthropist. Although such individuals are often rich, people may perform philanthropic acts without possessing great wealth.
