Keep the Homeless Warm

Update posted by Anshuman Mishra On Nov 30, 2015

I'm extremely proud to tell everyone today that this campaign was a complete success. With the generous amounts selflessly donated for this cause, we were able to arrange for a bulk order at a discounted rate from Meijer. Upon this shipment's arrival, we transported all one hundred sleeping bags (it took several trips!) to Star House.

Some recognition is in order. I want to thank Meijer, who organized a heavy discount on the order and would happily do more, and the staff that run Star House, a center for homeless and transitioning youths.

Star House is often in need of basic amenities and even plain cash, so I encourage all of you to give what you can. They serve a portion of society most of us are unaware of, and deserve all the help they can get.

Once again, thanks to everyone who donated for making this idea a reality. I hope to see y'all again next year.

Thanks to monetary pledges and cash donations, this campaign has just passed the $2000 mark, as we head into the final stage.

I've concretely established three sleeping bags I'm thinking of purchasing, and I am currently in contact with agencies downtown regarding the distribution of the bags. I will inform y'all of these details as soon as they are definite.

I want to thank everyone who has donated for their compassion and selflessness, and I urge those of you reading this for the first time to please donate.

When I started this campaign last month, I had no idea that we would be able to raise as much money as fast as we have. However, yesterday we passed the $1000 dollar mark.

This milestone seems to me the best place to begin the next phase of this campaign. I have already narrowed down the various sleeping bag options and created a shortlist of the best ones and the best places to procure them in Columbus. My next step is to contact the managers of these stores to see if I can obtain any discounts, allowing me to get more bang for my buck. I will also begin to contact various homeless shelters and aid providers in Columbus to discuss how best to distribute these sleeping bags to the needy in the area.

I want to thank everyone who has donated to this campaign for their generosity. I hope that others find it in their hearts to help this cause.
