Did you know? The average youth in foster care experiences 3 home changes and loses up to 6 months of academic progress with each move. Helping ensure foster youth have what they need to succeed in school allows them to enter the classroom with confidence knowing they won’t need to borrow items or negatively stand out from their peers. There are many ways you can help whether it’s collecting school supplies by hosting a collection drive, donating online to purchase school supplies, donating school supplies and dropping off at your nearest Mattress Firm, or hosting an online fundraiser. Every pencil and dollar helps foster kids start the school year right. To donate online or learn more visit: tickettodream.org
A FREE WAY to help HOMELESS YOUTH….
We REALLY need YOUR WINTER CLOTHES you no longer wear or use. It would be for HOMELESS YOUNG PEOPLE in the New York City metro area. So we are inviting YOU AND YOUR GUESTS to Kevin Powell‘s 17th annual holiday party and clothing drive THIS FRIDAY EVENING, DEC 1, 7pm, at Le Poisson Rouge, 158 Bleecker Street, NEW YORK CITY.
If you could PLEASE BRING CLEAN new or used coats, gloves, hats, scarves, long underwear, boots, shoes, and other items for all body sizes that would be incredible. SAFE HORIZON STREET WORK PROJECT is the charity we support with this effort. They do AMAZING WORK for the homeless, helping THOUSANDS of young people every year between the ages of 13 and 25.
Admission is FREE with your clothing donations, and you can drop your clothes right out front and then come inside to enjoy GREAT MUSIC, incredible networking with a diverse group of #NYC influencers, and also have food and drink. VERY HAPPY to announce that our deejays will be Cynthia Cherish Malaran AKA DJ CherishTheLuv AND original Freedom Party deejays and founders Marc Smooth and Djcosi Levy (PLEASE check their NEW musical party, NYC Dope!). We hope to see you there! Oh, RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org #KPHolidayParty#kevinpowell #BUZZapproved

It is October and every year, we GO PINK in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same. We have made a lot of progress but still have a long way to go!
