Raise #5 to the rafters for George Floyd t-shirt fundraiser complete, movement continues

The "Raise #5 to the rafters for George Floyd" t-shirt fundraiser is now complete and we sold 36 t-shirts. This raised $176.49 total. First off, thank you to everyone who bought a t-shirt and spread the word - Marvin and Mandy Billups, Spencer Smith, Sadia Alroabie, Alexis Ozoria, Bianca Lisa, Olivia Oyola, Kaheem Davis, Sandra Sanabria, William Davis, Shanyka and Beatrice Scott, Jermaine Lewis, Jason Lewis, Patrick James, TJ Schorr, Kevin Major, Corey Orgias, Jenee Johnson, Kevin Johnson and John Simmons. Also, shout out to our trivia contest winners - Branden Gibson, Marvin Billups Jr, Nkeba Baker, Spencer Smith, Corey Orgias and Daniel Jacas.

Our goal was to sell 50 t-shirts which was projected to raise $288.50. With Max's All Stars matching that amount, our donation to https://secure.actblue.com/donate/bail_funds_george_floyd would have been $577.00. Unfortunately, we fell short of our fundraising goal - but that's okay because Max's All Stars covered the difference and rounded up to make a donation of $600.00. Our contribution will be split among dozens of community bail funds, mutual aid funds, and racial justice organizers.

Even though our t-shirt fundraiser is now complete, the movement we have created will continue. Max's All Stars remains committed to using our platform to speak out on issues of social and racial injustice. We will continue to share historical facts, make donations and sign petitions. Whatever we can do to help make this world a better place, no matter how big or small, let's do it together. If anyone has suggestions for organizations to support and things we can do to help the cause, please contact us. Thank you.
