GBNY Charity Raffle Air Jordan 13 Lucky Green on 26th Of September 2020
GBNY for the first time conducted a charity raffle with the Air Jordan 13 Lucky Green to fundraise for the Children's Aid Foundation. At Children’s Aid, they help children in poverty to succeed and thrive. They do this by providing comprehensive support to children, youth, and their families in targeted high-needs New York City neighborhoods.
"We believe all kids have limitless potential. But for those growing up surrounded by poverty, family instability, and physical or emotional stress, life is too often about survival, not possibility. It’s unacceptable that in New York, a city of historic opportunity, so many of our children face serious barriers to realizing their own promise. We know what it takes to ensure children grow up strong and healthy, and ready to thrive in school and life: excellent education and health care, social-emotional support, and strong, stable families." - Children's Aid
