Family – I absolutely love this! This is a true example of good people making a positive impact in the community. Let’s help Maya and Shaka Smart raise awareness and money for a great cause, the FRIENDS Association of Richmond. FRIENDS Association for Children has been serving Richmond for more than 140 years and offers services that help children gain critical literacy and developmental skills. FRIENDS operates child development centers in Jackson Ward and Church Hill, serving nearly 1,000 children, with a broad array of services.
The Smart Family just started a 30-day fundraising campaign – along with Richmond T-Shirt start-up Bonfire Funds.
The long/short of it is that you can click this link CLICK HERE and buy a FRIENDS RVA T-Shirt. It goes to the amazing goal of raising $100,000 for FRIENDS. In March Madness fashion – you can organize (or coach) your own team and sell shirts for your team. The winning team gets an amazing prizes. Also, once teams reach certain selling goals they get some very cool prizes, like dinner at one of my favorite restaurants The Roosevelt with Shaka, “55” Samsung Smart TV, or an amazing print from Doug Orleski (RVA Coffee Stain).
It’s really a great cause. Please visit the Bonfire site and buy a shirt to support the campaign.
