Operation Warm Feet

Are you looking for a way to help our Youth this holiday season? Operation Warm Feet is a holiday mission geared towards helping to warm homeless youth and young adults in our community with style!

Most homeless youth are sometimes left without the basic necessities of life! As we know it is imperative to keep your feet clean and dry. Access to shoes and socks are often limited for youth and young adults living in homeless shelters or on the streets of our communities. Therefore, as socks are such a basic need we need your help this season to help complete the mission of Operation Warm Feet!

GOAL: THIS YEAR OPERATION WARM FEET WOULD LIKE TO GIVE OUT 1,000 PAIRS OF SOCKS TO HOMELESS SHELTERS AND INDIVIDUALS LIVING ON THE STREETS IN NEED!

A Feet Fact: Did you know?
The feet are one of the most vital body parts. The core of your body drops in temperature to compensate for the drop in the limbs. Warm feet means you are well on your way to heating the rest of your body.

Can You Help?—Will You Help?—You can help!
This mission is simple, should you choose to accept. Just collect as many thick, well insulated, stylish, colorful NEW socks as you can, and call us for a pick up or drop location, however all new socks will be accepted.

Are you having a holiday party?
Charge two pair of socks for admission to help the homeless in our community.

To get started just download the flyer: Operation Warm Feet and share it with your co-workers, classmates, colleagues, friends, family or whoever you’d like to participate. The sock collection will be held from December 12 – 20, 2014. If you are interested in hosting a drop off location, would like to arrange a pick up, drop off donations or request more information, send us an email (operationwarmfeet@gmail.com) or call (516) 647-2760. If you would like to send socks from out of town, please ship your socks to: PO BOX 745, Freeport, NY 11520 (Attn: Operation Warm Feet). Thank you!

Warming the lives of others,

Dexter Hedgepeth
Founder & President
Operation Warm Feet

Feature: Vintage Wealth Apparel

Vintage Wealth was created in September of 2013. The idea originally came from the lead designer (Fa$tLyfe), disappointment with one of his favorite clothing lines to wear. Once they started to mass produce merchandise, he took it upon himself to start up his own line to bring back the exclusive feel that he prefers. That was the birth of Vintage Wealth.

The goal with Vintage Wealth is to have a high-end, yet affordable brand that appeals to all ages and races. Typically with a black owner, clothing lines get pushed into the urban market, but not Vintage Wealth.

Vintage Wealth wants to be mentioned with names like Chanel and Ralph Lauren. What makes the clothing so different is that its hand painted and there are only three of each size made; so once a item is sold out its no longer available. Which gives the consumer a better feel because they paid for exclusivity and quality.

The picture above is with creator and designer of Vintage Wealth (Fa$tLyfe) displaying one of his custom, hand painted shirts worn by myself, Miss Jones. The shirt says, ‘Good Things Come.” Which goes with what Lovely Miss Jones stands for.

When asked, Fa$t gave the meaning behind those words. “To me it’s a message about having faith. So many people usually put “Good things come to people who hustle”, etc. I want people to know if you have faith “Good Things Come” that’s it. No hustle, etc. The way is through GOD & having the faith of the mustard seed. Media spends so much time breaking people down, its time to bring people up and assure them that “Good Things Come”.

Along with this shirt, vintage wealth has many other T-shirts, tanks, sweatshirts, beanies, and snapbacks. High end fashion, at affordable prices. Below are a few of the many designs.

Here are three simple yet cute outfits that display the possibilities of rocking this denim trend:
