: We got 360 sets of thermal underwear (a fraction of the original goal given that the fundraising goal was not met). Distribution starts this week!
: We are closing the campaign this Wednesday (01/20) so that we can start distribution next week. Please consider making a donation in the next few days!
We are receiving donations to buy 1,000 sets of thermal underwear
(top and bottom). These will be distributed during the next few months to homeless individuals in the Chicago area. Our cost for each set is $6.00
which includes shipping, distribution and fundraising expenses (these are good quality sets which retail for $39.99, see photo attached). Your donations to this cause are tax deductible
This is not more complicated than that. If you’re ready to give, please click the red “Donate Now” button above (and to the right). If you need more information or want to help with distribution
, please read along or contact the organizers.
Who are we? Simply, a group of friends who have a concern for the homeless and who are expanding our outreach to those in need. We have a history of serving the homeless and one way we’ve done so is by distributing essential items such as gloves, underwear, coffee, sandwiches, etc. in numerous occasions, cities and countries.Tax exemption
: We have recently established a charitable organization "Love Your Neighbor
" (for more information see http://lyn.life
) and have received exemption from federal income tax. All donations through this page are eligible to be deducted as a charitable contribution. Further, donors giving $250 or more will receive a written acknowledgement of the contribution
from our organization. For more information email us at agr 'at' lyn.life.
As part of the mission outlined above, we’re looking to partner with others and raise awareness to the needs of others in our communities... yes, practical needs which together we can fulfill. This said, want to help? Please start by giving. Want to do more? Great. We can definitely use help with distribution. Please leave a comment or contact the organizers if you want to get involved.
