Come! Mend! Please help support the homies at Commend NYC
Beyond providing a structural and aesthetic boon to Commend, new floors will provide a more dynamic use for the storefront. Through this campaign, we plan to open up Commend as a meeting space to young non-profits for one Monday morning a month over the course of a year.
Between the hours of 9:30a - 12:00p, use our (new!) floors to develop world-changing endeavors; use our internet, our kettle, our bathroom and our - most of all - support and energy to keep your conversations glowing. We plan to begin a monthly Monday evening Town Hall meeting at Commend for communities to seek support, offer help, and foster love for one another. We need the L more than ever now.
Your investment will allow us to further nurture a safe space in the Lower East Side and develop initiatives to expand our support network beyond the New York City bubble. If you’ve picked up our Plant Parenthood or Healing The Nation pamphlets, you’ll have a good reference for more printed materials to come.
If our campaign goal exceeds expectations, we hope for a coat of new paint and to remove the big, bulky black “command station” in the middle of Commend to allow a freer flow of energy and exchange.
This campaign is just the beginning of a much larger conversation. We hope you join in.
