Brave Space Alliance donations

So far we have raised over $100 dollars for Brave Space Alliance. You can help them out directly by visiting https://www.bravespacealliance.org/donate

We will continue to offer the items up on this page (https://mpcustommade.com/2020/06/12/sales-into-support/) and update them according to what’s sold. Hopefully we’ll add some new stuff too.

That said, if you see something on the rest of the site that doesn’t have a ‘buy now” button you’d be interested in, let us know! Maybe we can add that button to other items and add its purchase towards the fundraising efforts.

Thank you for helping!

Sales into Support

Brave Space Alliance http://www.bravespacealliance.org is an organization that works hard to support BIPOC LGBT+ people in their own communities. They have also been providing integral food pantry and other services to neighbors during the difficulties of CoVid 19. Recently, Brave Space Alliance stepped in to ensure more food and other essential services to their neighbors during protests– including making sure CPS students and their families received meals after the city stopped distribution to some of the most vulnerable.

Brave Space Alliance is a boots-on-the-ground organization that deserves your support as they continue their work in the South and West Sides, as well as continue to inspire change across Chicago.
