Hey guys. I need your help, please. Actually, New York City needs your help. I am launching a Mother’s Day Campaign to raise funds for City Harvest New York. This campaign will consist of five downloadable, coloring Mother’s Day charity cards, for purchase for $3.50, with 100% of the proceeds going to City Harvest.
I am born and raised in NYC. My family has lived here for 6 generations. In my entire life, not even during September 11, have I ever seen New York so sad. The city that never sleeps has practically been in a coma for 6 weeks. It’s unfathomable. Not only is the city sleeping, the city is sick. Unemployment rates are unprecedented. The cities wealthy have left to escape the sadness and literally the threat of getting sick. Forget about physically, but mentally being cooped up in small NYC apartments is not easy either. But the city’s middle classes and lower classes are struggling MORE THAN EVER. Public school is cancelled. Which means that WAY TOO MANY FAMILIES CANNOT AFFORD TO PUT FOOD ON THEIR TABLES. That is the reason I am launching this Mother’s Day Campaign, as Mother’s Day charity donation to our wonderful city. Covid has not been easy on me. I am in the middle of a huge move, by myself, with no help, working full time and with two little kids. But thank God, I can eat. I have shelter. There is more demand for City Harvest than ever. MY CITY, NEW YORK CITY, NEEDS YOUR HELP.
I have launched 3 coloring books, all for free. My hard earned intellectual property, given as a gesture to the public, to help people stay creative and sane during this time. It is time I start to do more than that. I feel it is my duty as a brand owner, artist, and mother to raise funds desperately needed at this time. I cannot imagine what it must feel like for the mothers out there who suddenly cannot afford to feed their children. It is literally breaking my heart. PLEASE, SUPPORT MY MOTHER’S DAY CAMPAIGN. Send your wife, mother, grandmother, friend, and frontline workers a beautiful and heartfelt coloring card, straight from your heart. I can guarantee you will put cheer on many people’s faces, your own included. I’m so excited to see the results of this Mother’s Day Campaign. I’m setting a $10,000 goal but really I’d love to raise way more than that. Please help me get there! My coloring books got downloaded over 10,000 times for free. I only need to get about 3,000 downloads on these to reach (and hopefully exceed) my goal. Seriously appreciate your support, let’s make this Mother’s Day charity event for our city a blessing.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the INCREDIBLE moms out there. Your job is harder now more than ever. And a serious round of applause and standing ovation to the moms working the front lines. I can’t imagine what that must feel like and the entire world is grateful and praying for you.
