To you amazing DAMNED patrons and online fans who purchased raffle tickets for the Atelier Gothique fundraiser, THANK YOU!
With your generosity, we raised $1,162 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 2019 marks the 11th year of this wonderful fundraiser, which has generated $10,947 since 2009 to help our friends in dire need in the winter. You are all truly making a difference in Detroit! (doxie bolded this!!)
Still want to help while having fun and making new friends? Attend the upcoming BWBD backpacking party on Sunday December 1st:
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 (Kiya, Lynn, Rachel & Stacey) for their hard work in selling 247 raffle tickets during the event to make this a reality. Without you all, this can never happen each DAMNED year.
