MESSAGE from Ibrahim Asad Siddiq about his ongoing fundraiser for the homeless:
“The Artist Collective usually has an annual coat drive event for the homeless but this year I’ve decided to switch it up a bit.
We’re going to be ordering Emergency Thermal Blankets to hand out to the homeless. The cost of each blanket is $1 (in Bulk) therefore we’re charging $1 as a cover charge for this event which will go towards providing warmth to those in need this winter.
For those that would like to donate but aren’t able to make it to the event feel free to visit our GoFundMe Campaign.”
