Party With A Purpose

Most people know Spkng for obviously our clothing, but the biggest piece behind the brand is service and using creativity to find and fill need. Ron wanted to serve for his birthday and sat down with Dionte Allen of Spbx and thought that it would be really cool to get water to Flint, Michigan. To stand out from other fundraisers, we figured that instead of charging a cover to get into the venue, party goers could bring water to serve as their entrance fee.

#ForFlint was originally scheduled for October 14th, 2016 but because of Fall Break at Miami University we decided to push the event back to the 21st when students returned to increase participation. With about 2 weeks of planning we were able to collect 76 cases of water, over $200 in monetary donations used to cover travel and additional cases of water, in addition to a $100 gift card donated to us from the Oxford, Ohio Walmart. The highlight was seeing every one rush to the venue to drop off water, leave to change, then come back to party with us.

This event wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for collaboration. There were a number of independent donors that not only contributed financially, but took the time out to share our posts to their social media, pass out flyers, in addition to simply telling their friends about our efforts. A special thank you to DJ Shoe, the Delta Upsilon Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Incorporated, LYLAS, the Miami University Chapter of NSBE, Cellar Bar & Grill, the Office of Diversity Affairs, the Office of the Dean of Students at Miami University, Walmart, Enterprise, and most importantly Mt. Calvary Missionary Baptist Church for allowing us to donate what we collected.
