Blankets of Hope 2017


Hey! We’re the happyFreaks.

We’re entrepreneurs and lifestyle explorers from Brooklyn, NY.

Last Winter, we had a terrifying thought…

What if everything and everyone we loved was tragically taken from us?

Our comfy bed and fridge filled with food… gone.

Our hot showers and clean drinking water… gone.

Our family and friends… gone.

Fortunately, we came back to reality and realized how lucky we really were.

But unfortunately, this Winter, more than 60,000 people in NYC won’t have to imagine that stuff happening... they’ll actually be living it on the streets.

Due to one circumstance or another, these men, women and children will be completely alone.

Hungry, ALONE, and freezing cold.

So Last Winter, we made it our mission to deliver warmth to some of those in need.

With the support from our family, friends and community,

We wrote personalized notes, and handed out 100 Blankets of Hope to the homeless.

And our message was simple: We believe in you.

The cool part...We actually had awesome time doing it and felt like real change was being made!

So this year, we’re ready to 10X things!

Starting November 1st,

Our goal is to hand out 1,000 Blankets of Hope to the homeless of NYC.

But we definitely can’t do it alone. We need a team.

We need you.

Each blanket costs us $15.

So to reach our goal of handing out 1,000 blankets this Winter…

We’re going to need to put together $15,000.

And listen, we know $15 isn’t chump change... but we also know this:

you’re not just buying a blanket.

You’re changing someone’s life.

You’re doing your part in making this world a more loving place.

Oh and btw, just in case you’re still a little skeptical of these 2 kids from Brooklyn...

We’ll be documenting our entire journey on Facebook so that you can actually SEE where your money is going!

So, can we count on your help?!
