Rise For the Cause

            Every sneaker head or urban hypebeast walking knows how big of a classic the Retro “Royal” Air Jordan 1 is so lets skip the significance of the shoe and talk about a more controversial crisis that it’s release is causing. Local New York boutique Rise is using a raffle to donate proceeds to the Flint water crisis.
            24 pairs of the shoe are available sizes 8-13 through the raffle. Raffle entries run $1 each and there’s a minimum spend of $10. The goal was to raise at least $3,000 but that was pass as $4,500 has now been raised. Rise will contact the winners on Friday and the shoes will release Saturday April 1st.

            Rise is really for the culture using a monumental event to give back to the people who really matter. Hopefully we see more retailers and companies pick up this trend and make a difference to what counts and not accounts.
