Invest in Los Cuentos. Why?

To support Los Cuentos is to support a vision for the city of Los Angeles with a small nod or tip of the hat. At one point, ‘Los Cuentos‘ was just a motivational phrase for yours truly, something pushing me towards ‘The Stories.‘ It was based off the blog, the full title of which is JIMBO TIMES: The L.A. Storyteller.

Then came the clouds.

In the same way that the bubbly wandering epaluettes of the sky can appear from nowhere to draw our attention, the clouds for Los Cuentos symbolize the importance of mystery in our lives and imagining something different than what our immediate surroundings might offer. They also remind me of the far away places my people came from even before they became the ethnic and working-class communities highlighted throughout this blog. 

This is why the Los Cuentos Snap is just the right fit. The mission of my work over the last five years with JIMBO TIMES: The L.A. Storyteller has been to highlight and celebrate the magical and far-reaching ways of so many of our people out here. Now, with this hat, I can invite the rest of the world to celebrate their magic with me. So, pick up your first Los Cuentos Snapback, or support one for a student, and together we’ll nod to this great city in style.
