Raised by 73 people in 2 months
Dear Ones,
We just awoke to the news of this morning's fire at Robert Shoes on Chicago and Lake Street. Apartments, artist studios, and store fronts were destroyed. We are SO thankful no one was injured.

Sadly, DJ Michel Be.'s Roland DJ 808 controller was destroyed in the blaze, along with many artists' beautiful work and resources. We are holding folks impacted in our hearts as they recover. We are honestly in a moment of grief, stress, and don't know what to do.

If you know Be you know that music for community, Ancestral vibration, and healing through frequencies are their calling. Their medicine. Be has been steadily investing in their craft and in this controller to take that healing vision to the next level, and has many events coming even this week.

On top of it all, today is also moving day! After getting engaged in March, Michel.Be and Nicque Mabrey are finally creating a home together. It's been a season of growth and hard work we are proud of. We need your help to keep things on track for Michel.Be and begin our life in one home.

Any help you can provide will go toward replacing Michel's controller, and recovering financially from the setback as we move. Please give what you are able, and what is meaningful to you.

With our Love and Deepest Gratitude,
Nicque and Michel.Be

Community has really shown me what support and investment is really about.

I am ending my fundraiser thanks to the tremendous support for me, my craft, my career, and my life.

Please encourage your networks to continue to support the others who have suffered great loss in the fire.

With great love and appreciation, Thank you!
