Roseville, CA (PressExposure) July 01, 2013 -- Sacramento area residents were determined to make a difference when they donated a collection of furniture, clothing, electronics and appliances to help raise funds for the Robinhooding for Homeless (R4H) garage sale. The event took place on June 8th & 9th in Sacramento, CA and raised $800. To help continue growing the R4H program, the funds raised were applied towards the filing fees to make R4H a California Registered Charitable Organization as a 501(c)3. This allows them to be able to accept tax-deductible donations and to provide donation receipts.
The mission of R4H is to aid the homeless while creating mindfulness and being the change we wish to see in the world. The team collects hygiene items and delivers them to local area shelters, helping to alleviate some of the financial strain placed on the shelters. "Our hope is that this will help them to allocate more of their resources toward developing programs that assist with housing and job placement", says Michelle Buller.
Robinhooding for Homeless is a true grassroots movement at its core. The 12 year old, grass-roots champion, Rachel Buller works to increase the region by distributing the items collected alongside her Sister, Michelle Buller. Michelle works as the Outreach Coordinator, who adopted the idea and turned it into a cause that makes it easy for anybody to step-in and make a donation. The director of the board, Debbie Viramontes along with Michelle and Rachel Buller lead the garage sale efforts to true success.
Robinhooding for Homeless is a grassroots movement which has focused on collecting travel-sized shampoo, conditioner, lotion, soap bars; dental items and combs & brushes for the homeless. Up until recently, the R4H efforts were funded solely by Michelle Buller, an entrepreneur in the Sacramento, California area. Now that the momentum for this effort has grown, they have been featured in many area events, and encouraged individuals and families from all around to join in on the movement.
