Donate and Support Love Before Learning

Please support ASD, students and staff

Thank you for visiting our DONATE page.

On March 13 and 14, burglars broke in at our ART Center in Long Beach. The thieves first broke the glass window wall and stole several iPads and MacBooks and $300 in cash. The next night they returned, shattered the glass front door, and stole our 46” television, as well as some additional tech equipment.

We are very fortunate that no one was present during the break ins and that none of our staff or students were injured or endangered.

The cost of repairing damages (twice) and replacing our stolen technology and devices is approximately $10,000. Because we were forced to cancel classes on Saturday and Monday, there will be an additional loss of approximately $2,000 in lost enrollment funding.

Cost to replace one iPad = $500
Cost to replace our 46” TV = $600
Cost to replace one MacBook laptop = $1,000

We are gratefully accepting contributions to assist us in replacing our lost equipment and revenue. We do have insurance, but it will not cover the entire cost, nor replace our lost enrollment funding.

We will be back up and running very soon. If you are able to help, we will be very, very grateful.
