A raffle ticket costs $20 USD and 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to the aforementioned organization, which helps by providing bail to medically vulnerable people who are currently being held in jails throughout New York — the inability to pay bail disproportionately affects low-income communities of color. The fund also provides comprehensive post-release support, such as shelter and food, to those in need of its help.
Bodega Rose’s founder Olivia Rose wrote in an Instagram post, “Complacency will not be tolerated. Silence is not acceptable. America owes so much to the black community; I owe so much to the black community. Thank you for giving so much to the world.” Alongside the raffle ticket donations, Rose will be donating daily to foundations that “support black businesses, safety and health, and the protest efforts.”
The raffle for Bodega Rose’s Air Jordan 1 “Travis Scott” vase ends on June 5 at 11:59 p.m. EST. Tickets can be purchased on Bodega Rose’s website.
In other news, Bandcamp has announced that it will be donating its profits to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund every Juneteenth.
