In honor of Suicide Prevention Day we hosted a charity livestream through our Instagram live. Fans joined us and spinned a wheel to either get prizes or money donated in their name. Every fan that joined, was $1 donated to ASFP.org.
We partnered with Berry-Yo, a local frozen Yogurt shop for a “Swirl and Care” event. For every sale at the shop, 15% was donated towards mental health research. At the event fans could experience happiness through our sunflower wall, happiness flavor, post on our bulletin board and donate to enter our hoodie raffle.
We hosted a toy drive to help those in need over
the holiday season. For every purchase on our “Holiday Drop”, one toy was donated. We hosted a toy drive livestream through our instagram for toys to be donated in our fans names.
We are proud to say over 125 toys were
donated to our local toy drive.
