With your generosity, we raised $1459 for Burners without Borders Detroit! This will greatly help to purchase much needed basic-need supplies (canned goods, water, toiletries, underclothing, gloves, blankets, etc) to create hundreds of survival backpacks for those on our cold streets and not in the crowded homeless shelters. This is real-life grassroots community “giving” by volunteers in the true spirit of the word with no corporate management profiteering and your generosity makes this happen!
And 2018 marks the 10th year of this wonderful fundraiser, which has generated $9785 since 2009 to help our friends in dire need in the winter. You are all truly making a difference in Detroit!
Want to have fun, help more, make new friends and be a part of something truly special? Attend the upcoming BWBD backpacking party on December 2nd:
Thank you again and remember: Be the change you wish to see in Detroit!
P.S. Much heartfelt DAMNED gratitudes goes to Dekilah and the DAMNED Devil Girls & Guys (Jessica, Lynn, Rachel, Ryan, Stacey & Yana) for their hard work in selling nearly 271 raffle tickets during the event to make this a reality. Without you all, this can never happen each DAMNED year.
P.P.S. And tremendous gratitude goes to Atelier Gothique for their generous donation of their fine alternative jewelry to the raffle each year! Please check out their work at: http://www.ateliergothique.com/
