Local college students grabbed some paint brushes to raise awareness about the humanitarian crisis in Darfur.

The event is called Tents of Hope.

Students made donations to paint part of a tent --which will be featured at the gathering of the tents event in Washington DC this fall.

The tents symbolize the uprooting of the millions of displaced people in Darfur.
