Hi again Space,
You (yes YOU!) are invited to attend fundraising events in support of Habitat for Humanity (HFH). These events are meant to be fun little social events, so no work is involved! But please bring your dollars, 100% of proceeds will go straight to HFH! These events are all 21+ and located in downtown L.A., sorry baby faces. <3

WHAT'S THIS ALL FOR??
I've decided to do some good deeds in the off-season. I am fundraising for HFH, which is a charity organization that builds homes to help hardworking, limited-income families. Later on this year, I will be building a new home for a well-deserved lucky family.

We will be hosting a series of awesome fundraising events in downtown LA, and you are invited to attend! Every dollar counts, 100% of proceeds from all events will go straight to HFH!
(These events are all 21+, sorry youngies <3)
**Remember to contact Zina Hwang through Facebook or her email for questions about any these events, where to park in downtown LA, etc.**
