City Slang: Kem helps the homeless

Posted By on Fri, Jun 8, 2012 at 5:33 AM

Motown artist Kem is teaming up with BlackCelebrityGiving.com for a summer campaign called “Help Us, Help Them”, providing toiletries to homeless communities across the country.

“Homelessness for me is a cause that touches my heart like no other,” said Jasmine Crowe, founder of BlackCelebrityGiving.com™. “I’ve had the chance to speak intimately with homeless individuals and families, and what propelled me the most towards this campaign is that I know that every day, people are just a paycheck or two away from being in the same situation.”

Kem added that, ““I’ve been fortunate in my life to overcome many obstacles, including being addicted and homeless. If it weren’t for organizations dedicated to helping the homeless, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I hope to be an inspiration to others to offer something tangible like toiletries, with the hope that we might make a difference for somebody who might be struggling to manage life on a daily basis.”

The campaign will be going on throughout summer. Items like toothbrushes, toothpaste, lotion, soap and shaving cream can be sent to BCG 5025 N. Cantral Ave., Suite 271, Phoenix, AZ 85012 c/o Help Us, Help Them.
