Painting with the Soul

The “To-KonPainters” add color to the lives of those who are short on cash. The volunteers will travel anywhere for a good cause, painting buildings and playground equipment free of charge. This program follows them to Lithuania, where they repainted the memorial hall for ChiuneSugihara. Sugihara was a Japanese diplomat who helped 6,000 Jews flee the Holocaust by issuing them transit visas. The painters overcame climatic and linguistic differences to get the job done.
