One final stat we want to leave you with is this. Sometimes we take for granted that we have the basic necessities in life like food on the table or a roof over our head. But as we move into the harsh winter, keep in mind that not everyone has the same resources available to them which is a shame when there's so much to go around for everyone. Help us be part of the solution tomorrow night and beyond. It's up to US! #homelessnessinamerica #homelessnessinnewjersey #hungerinamerica #bethesolution #hiphopagainsthunger #itsbiggerthanhiphop #hiphopgivesback #hiphopforacause #benefitconcert #feedthehomeless #endhunger #newark #newarkhiphop #lovethyneighbor #communityrestoration #empowerthehomeless

This should be cause for immediate concern and action from EVERY one of us as it could happen to ANY one of us!

“There’s no better feeling than knowing that I’m bringing what I learn in school home to the partnership and helping to restore our lands.” — Shawaan Gamble-Jackson, Keex' Kwaan Community Forest Partnership crew lead. In southeast Alaska, there is a growing partnership between the tribal government in Kake, state and federal agencies, nonprofits and others, working to build climate resilience, invigorate the local economy, and most of all, reinstate the voice of the Keex’ Kwaan community as the foremost authority over their lands. Now on our blog, KKCFP Coordinator and Ecotruster @miakahnix shares field notes from working with a crew of five local young people as they conducted ecological surveys of the land. Link in bio.

For this year's featured artist, we're proud to present to you a local legend in the graf and street art world, Chris “Cent” Reyes. Born and raised in the Kearny/Newark area, @cent_pfe finds graffiti to be a constructive part of his life, keeping him out of trouble in some instances, and landing him square in it in others. A first generation American, Chris’ parents relocated from Chile in hopes of better opportunities. Consequently, he grew up with a lack of extended family and, naturally, a lack of guidance. Therefore the streets became his playground; the walls his canvas, and spray paint his brush.Today, Cent is an entrepreneur and professional artist showcasing his talent via public and private art commissions, “Official Bizness” branded t-shirts, flyer design, and art show production. He is also part of the @drscollective which includes a coalition of artists, musicians, and DJs. His work can be found all over the streets of the Tri-State area and we're very fortunate to feature him at this year's event, where he'll be creating a live piece which one lucky attendee will be able to take home via our Rebuild Raffle! #centpfe #cent #drscollective #graffiti #streetart #hiphopagainsthunger #hiphopgivesback #hiphopforacause #benefitshow #benefitconcert #feedthehomeless #endhunger #newark #newarkhiphop #ymcanewarkandvicinity #dogood #bethechange #giveback #beselfless #lovethyneighbor #communityrestoration #empowerthehomeless #foodnotbombs

The City of Windsor got a little greener today as more than 30 volunteers gathered to plant 50 large trees at Gignac Park. Volunteers included students from the @uwindsor Odette School of Business, staff from @pricewaterhousecoopers, the @windsorpolice and members of the community. The trees were funded by local entrepreneur and philanthropist Sam Sinjari 🌳 The trees are a diversity of native hardwoods best suited for the wet, heavy clay soil conditions at the park including Burr Oak, Swamp White Oak, Sycamore, Swamp Maple and others. Trees help to improve air and water quality, and can reduce the impacts of flooding and climate change.  As well, access to natural areas has positive mental, physical and spiritual health benefits. #treeplanting #placeforlife #communityrestoration #volunteers

It was truly inspiring to see all the programs, people, and resources they have available to help those who need us the most therefore we decided to make YMCA Newark & Vicinity our 2019 Beneficiary for @hiphopagainsthunger! This is a call to action! Below are the items they're desperately in need of which we'll be collecting at this year's event!

The journey I’ve been led to take, and I’ve chosen to take, has allowed me to walk through devastating communities after natural disasters. Last Tuesday, I walked through places devastated by Tropical Storm Imelda in Beaumont and Vidor, Texas. Walking through these spaces made me sad, frustrated, and grateful. Grateful because a lot of people didn’t lose their lives, frustrated because people can’t seem to understand that other people need them to show up for them, grateful because I am able to help connect them to resources. This journey isn’t always easy but I give thanks for the ability to help others. Please consider sharing our efforts and donating. #barefootempress #communityrestoration #disasterrelief #disasterresponse

On Tuesday we were able to go through communities that were impacted by Tropical Storm Imelda, to find peoples’s entire lives ruined by the flood. People who lived on the bottom floor of Sunlight apartment lost everything. We are working to help people restore their lives and get supplies. People’s cars were completely flooded and they are unable to leave to obtain what they need. Please donate to our efforts to help people who’ve lost everything. #communityrestoration #disasterrelief

Imagine, two years after Hurricane Harvey you’re home and car is flooded again. FEMA hasn’t declared a state of emergency and you don’t have anything. No clothes. No car. No furniture. We our out here in Beaumont to learn what more we can do. We can come help them move. We can donate supplies and resources. This is just one location. Please donate. Link is in the bio. #disasterrelief #disaster #communityrestoration

A shot from our storytelling video being filmed in Urbanna, Va. Home of the @urbannaoysterfestival A few years ago, they realized that oysters were no longer found in their eponymously named creek. . . . With support from @nfwf , @epagov, and private donors, the collective vision of @christchurchschool, @townofurbanna411, and @cbgs4mes has come to life. . . . Today, millions of oysters have been restored along the shorelines of Urbanna Creek. Underwater grasses are coming back. Birds and fish are thriving. And the students involved have a truly living classroom. . . . This project is all ♥️. It shows what one smal community can do to make a difference 💪. Stay tuned for the full video! 🎥

In the rest and relaxation, you reconnect to the center of power, divinity, love, freedom, creativity/creation, flow, Godhood, bliss, consciousness. This portal is You. What you find, in remembrance, is You. The You that remembers it is all experience. That You that remembers you are infinite and powerful. That You that has been with you in all of your experiences. The You that is wisdom, all-knowing, omnipotent and omnipresent. Then you remember and remember. Your curiosity leads to more portals, more remembrance, which leads you to your knowing of the true Self and the One, the Source, that created You, that created All. This Oneness, this consciousness, is You. It all comes back to You, it all comes back to the Divine, simultaneously. Yes, you can trust the voice that is calmly guiding you to remember, to receive, to BE. #buddha #beingness #love #oneconsciousness #divineflow #remembrance #awakening #awakeningbody #infiniteawareness #houstonspirituality #communityrestoration #spiritualawakening

ICYMI: Lead poisoning disproportionately affects black and low-income communities. Typically, the exposure occurs in the place they should feel the most safe — home. Unfortunately, not all homes are lead-free. As we work toward #leadfreekids & #leadfreehousing we can also learn where to look for lead in our homes, reach out to our child’s doctor to learn more about signs and symptoms of lead poisoning and be sure to save the Association of Poison Control Center’s Number — 1.800.222.1222 #WellnessWednesday #NationalSafetyMonth #LeadPoisoning #HousingMatters #StrongFamilies #BuildCommunity #CommunityRestoration #BeDifferent #MakeADifference photo credit: @epagov

Summer breaks are the absolute best 💯😎 As we all soak up those sun rays, let’s also be sure to talk with our kids about the family check-in plan. Whether your plan involves texting location info at specific intervals or to come back from the playground ever so often is completely based on your family’s needs. What’s most important is that you have it, know it and use it. Safe families are strong families and strong families build community. #NationalSafetyMonth #CommunityRestoration #StrongFamilies #BuildCommunity #SummerBreak #TipTuesday #WhatsYourPlan #MakeAnImpact #BeDifferent
