I will be collecting donations, and at every milestone I will use the money to buy clothing which I will then distribute to clothing donation bins and emergency shelters around Boston. Each article of clothing will have a small crest (shown in the picture) printed at the front-center. The crest is derived from heraldic symbols, and it represents dignity and protection (angel wings over a shield).
$375 => 25 T-Shirts
$750 => 25 Long Sleeve Tees
$1125 => 25 Crewneck Sweatshirts
$1500 => 25 Hoodies
$2500 => 100 Sweatpants
Each time the balance reaches the above specified milestones, I will withdraw the money and donate the corresponding items (i.e. when the collected total is $750, I will donate 25 long sleeve tees). By the end of the campaign, there will be 225 donated articles of clothing for $11 each.
Donations past $2500 will either be donated directly to various charities or used for another mini service project if there are enough funds.
For those of you who added it up and realized that it actually isn't 225 articles of clothing, good catch, but I wasn't lying. At each milestone I will also buy and donate 4 pairs of socks and a pair of sneakers on top of the items already listed using my own money.
WHAT I NEED FROM YOU:
First, we’ll need to reach these milestones, so I ask that you donate as much as you are willing to. More importantly, I need you guys to share this campaign and remind more people that a small donation can make a world of a difference for someone else.
