Homelessness is a growing epidemic in Turtle Island. In Austin, Texas alone over 2,700 people are homeless and it's mostly Origines that makes up the Austin, Texas homeless population. And that's not all. Each year 3.5 million people experience homelessness and 40% are labeled "African American" when in reality most of them are possibly reclassified Origines. They may have or had Origine ancestors but their ancestors and possibly elders were reclassified several times on several different censuses. The numbers of Origines experiencing homelessness continue to grow each year.
November 2018 we decided to create the HGB fundraiser (now called Help the Homeless program) for people to donate our worthy cause. We donate $1 of each profit we make to the Help The Homeless program and are no longer accepting donations. When you shop with an Origine owned brand like from Shop Origine you'll already helping those in need to.
We are starting off small but want to continue to do big things.
Our current goal is to provide 100 hoodies and 50 gift baskets to local areas in Texas, California, District of Columbia and possibly more states.
For every order we'll donate $1 of our profits to our Help the homeless program. This program was created to show love, strength and honor we have towards Origines and Origine culture. We send apparel and gift baskets to the local homeless shelters in our areas and in our brand ambassadors area. We want to send the message that just because you're far away doesn't mean we can't do something to help.
Origine's Help the homeless program is proof that we can reach each out and help each other through our brand.
Here is Tasha Xi (Brand Ambassador of Origine) shopping for products to give the homeless.
