Everyone’s story is different…
There are many misconceptions of how people end up homeless. Sadly, there are numerous unfortunate reasons: sudden loss of employment, mental illness, a life altering event w/no family or friends to turn to, the possibilities go on.. So even though we may not be able to fix their situation, at least we can hopefully warm their heart by letting them know someone cares for them and provide them an ounce of hope and optimism. Infinite thanks to the most amazing family and friends who come together year after year to do our small part of sharing the warmth. 10 years strong and only getting stronger! For the next few weeks we will be gathering new items of warmth (gloves, scarves, socks, sweaters, beanies, etc.) and will be wrapping them up to create gift bags at our #WalnutGirls Xmas Party 12/23 to distribute to the streets of DTLA early Christmas morning.
*Gift cards also welcomed to purchase new items if you can’t make it to the store but must be received by 12/20.
Let’s spread the LOVE, share the WARMTH! For more info of where to deliver the items, email firstname.lastname@example.org or message me on instagram: @roslynnc. =)
Here is the 3 part interview in case you missed Kababayan Today where we talk about our mydiveo acquisition to engage:BDR, finding myself in the Philippines with Apl.de.Ap & crew, (changing my life/perspective), traveling to the White House aka “Brown House,” the fun of being a baon carrying proud Pinay in the music industry getting to work with artists like JustinBieber Drake Bruno Mars early on when they were baby superstars & launching Little B-Girl Clothing soon solely dedicated to inspire young girls creativity with a portion going to support non profit organizations for the group. Thanks again Giselle Tongi Walters for letting me share my story, hopefully for the benefit of helping young creatives know that it IS possible to live with passion & purpose while LOVING what your doing & God by your side. Don’t judge the bad hair day or the several times we cried
