LATE KNIGHTS IN WARMING ARMOUR
Winter is here, and it’s getting colder by the day. You’re probably reading this from the comfort of your home or office; snuggled up or in your warm knit-piece. You’re dreading that transition area between the front door and the car. Some feel that same nerve-wracking chill you get when you get out of bed on a cold December morning; but every morning, every minute, everyday.
This winter season, following last year’s outstanding response, The Grand Factory joins forces once again with Basmeh and Zeitooneh to help those in the cold. The +1 initiative under The Grand Factory’s ‘Late Knights’ campaign (a movement working towards a better society) kept hundreds of families warm, through donations last year.
The drill: Bring an extra item of clothing to The Grand Factory parties (MWF, Factory Fridays or C U NXT SAT) and drop them off at the entrance. Imagine that extra kilo or two you’re holding, imagine it on someone who’s constantly trying to brave the cold he/she lives in.
Basmeh and Zeitooneh is a humanitarian organization dedicated to serving and empowering refugees and homeless people so that they may lead a life of dignity and independence. “They don’t know how long they will have to live in temporary homes. We know that with proper support refugees can thrive even in the most turbulent times.”
It’s never a party without your + 1. The Grand Factory is your clothes drop-off.
