Philanthro Productions, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing Los Angeles� young urbanites with unique opportunities to give back, announced today its new partnership with Chrysalis. Chrysalis is an organization dedicated to helping disadvantaged and homeless individuals become self-sufficient by helping them find and prepare for employment opportunities.

Philanthro Productions will continue its tradition of efficiency and giving by donating 100% of the door cover to Chrysalis.

“Los Angeles has more homeless than any other city in the United States. We were emotionally impacted when visiting Chrysalis’ office on Skid Row and seeing the inspiring programs that change lives through job placement,� said co-president, Farhan Mahmood, �We witnessed first hand sustainable solutions to one of Los Angeles’ biggest problems.”
