Chance and the Empowerment Plan presented the Warmest Winter initiative in hopes of bringing 1,000 coats to the homeless. When it launched in December, Chance wanted to give Chicagoans a special coat that is “water-resistant” and “self-heating.” It can transform into a sleeping bag, or be worn as an over-the-shoulder bag when it is not in use.
Chance gave an update on Christmas when he confirmed his third mixtape wasn’t coming, but shared great news that the campaign raised almost $60,000 in ten days.
As of this writing, Chance has raised $102,507 and sponsored 1,025 coats. Peep his official announcement, below.
