PLEASE READ: A very personal note from Kevin Powell

Friday, December 2, 2011

Good day everyone. I pray you and your families are well as the holiday season and Winter approach. As many of you know, we are producing my 11th annual holiday party and clothing drive tonight in New York City. It is my sincere hope that you will join us at the event or, at the least, pass by for just a few minutes and drop off clean new or used coats, gloves, hats, scarves, or other items at a donation truck which will be parked right in front of the venue.

I started this event in December 2001 as my personal response to the September 11th tragedy. I wanted to do something that brought all kinds of people together in the wake of what happened to our beloved city. I wanted to do a party with a purpose. Have fun, yes, but also give back, and give to each other.

I decided to focus on the homeless community because there were several times in my young adult life where I floated from place to place, and did not have a permanent home, so I know what it is like to struggle in that way. While I cannot imagine what it is like to actually live on the streets of any city, I do know that as human beings we have a responsibility to care for each other, to help each other, in times of need.

Weather forecasters are predicting the 2011-2012 Winter will be brutally cold and filled with snowstorms, so doubly important we generate as many coats as possible for the Safe Horizon Streetwork Project. This wonderful New York organization services over 10,000 homeless young people in some way throughout the year, and we are honored to do this event for them.

Below is the evite for tonight. Please join us, please share the evite, or please simply say a prayer or meditation for those who are homeless in our city, in our nation. Anything you can do to help matters greatly.

Kevin Powell
