Help "Juneteenth Celebration" with Cleaning Fees

Hey everyone!

A month ago on June 19th, my team and I hosted a Juneteenth Celebration event for our people to celebrate our independence for free. We felt the importance that we provided a fun and safe space for our people to celebrate a holiday that was made for us to celebrate our freedom, and doing it for free.  With this being a free event, we attracted and hosted over 18,000 people at Liberty State Park, which was an amazing turn out to say the least. It was so much love in the air and the energy was unbelievable, it was one of the greatest days of our lives. Unfortunately, with it being a free event, we didn't have it in our budget to hire a clean-up team and we was charged with a extremely costly maintenance fee for the clean-up after the event.

If we're not able to pay this maintenance fee, we would not be able to host another Juneteenth Celebration event at Liberty State Park. We're here asking for your help! With this being such an amazing event, we want to make this event happen annually, and for our people to come back every year to celebrate such an amazing day with us.

If you're reading this, we ask if you can help us and donate whatever you can so we can cover these maintenance fees so we'll be able to come back stronger next year! Thank you so much!
