Hello there! My name is Aaron Plaat, and I’m the creator of 51movement.

In 2016, I became close friends with Sister J, who changed my heart/perception towards the homeless through our friendship.

I started 51movement to create a vehicle that would combine my love for the homeless with a desire to create beautiful artwork.

For every piece of artwork that’s sold, 51% of profits are donated to Portland Rescue Mission.

I am

I once met a man who made a deal with God, to donate 90% of his income. The man  become a tycoon in the energy business – while keeping his promise.

This story inspired me, and I yearned to do something similar; give more than you receive, while keeping the bills paid.

In 2007, I lost my Dad to colon cancer. He was 51-years-0ld when he left behind his wife and six children. The pain of his departure has never left my heart. Painting has been part of my healing, and I often feel his presence when I paint – which comes out through artistic expression of each stroke.

In memory of Wim Plaat, 51% is donated.

See you soon, Superman.
