T minus 2 days until UTW Day 2015
Saturday, June 13 marks the date for the 3rd Annual Unfuck The World Day with events around the globe, introducing positive projects + people making change, and we here at the headquarters in L.A. are working all day and (almost) all night to get everything ready in time.
As in previous years, we are going to have cities participating on four continents – Australia, Asia, Europe and North America – and for the first time ever, we are going to have live video chats with UTW event organizers and supporters around the globe.
Our UTW Day event here at the L.A. headquarters will take place right where we are doing our outreach work in support of the youth and young adults who live in shelters, on sidewalks and on the embankments of the 101 freeway, right in the heart of Hollywood.
It includes a DONATION DRIVE where we invite people to stop by and drop off in-kind donations: gently worn, clean clothes and shoes, new underwear and socks, toiletries, back packs and sleeping bags all will be highly appreciated.
And why just stop by to drop off? We welcome everyone to stay and relax for a couple of hours. DJ Merc80 will be spinning his MUSIC throughout the day, creating the perfect ambience for a sunny, laid back California afternoon, while visitors can check out our ART SHOW, featuring works by local homeless and at-risk youth and young adults, as well as by artists from around the globe.
All pieces will be for sale, the proceeds of art created by the young homeless will go directly to them, and the sales of works donated by international artist will benefit our non-profit, A Million Drops, that is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of the young homeless in Hollywood.
The event will also provide a platform for NETWORKING, for meeting like-minded people and finding out about the good things that are happening in our city. We’ve invited groups and individuals who do good in our local communities to represent themselves, including Laundry Love, American Street Kid, Give A Beat, the Youth Center on Highland, the HoPe Veterinary Center, My Friend’s Place, Rob Greenfield of the Food Waste Fiasco and more.
And if that wasn’t enough, we are going to have a RAFFLE with lots of great prizes, tickets are only a dollar and people don’t even have to be present to win!
Here is our link for monetary donations and this is our wish list on Amazon. Both links are handled by our non-profit, A Million Drops, an official 501(c)3, and I guarantee personally that your donation will go directly to the specific areas that it was intended for.
