The Joy of Giving: BK Nation Holiday Drive
Organized by: Kevin Powell
BK Nation is a new national organization based in New York City (the “BK” stands for “Building Knowledge”). It is a movement of people from all backgrounds, combining grassroots activism, pop culture, technology, and social media to spark projects and campaigns led by the people, for the people. We embrace the motto “The leadership is us” to convey that any real and lasting change in our America, and on our planet, will happen because of our voices, our ideas, and our actions.
With the desire to bring people of all communities and backgrounds together, BK Nation holds
- quarterly Live Music and Culture sessions featuring up and coming artists and performers,
- monthly forums on topics such as education, immigration, youth, financial literacy, health, and political engagement,
- and an annual holiday party and clothing drive for homeless youth in New York City.
In the past BK Nation has sponsored the 50th Anniversary March on Washington and held fundraisers, including a 2013 benefit for victims of the Philippine’s typhoon.
Our work has just begun, and we need your help. We especially want to be supported by people like you, and take as few donations as possible from any outlets that would stunt our growth or our ability to represent you to the best of our abilities.
