All profits will be donated to the Fill Hotels Not Graves fund. Here's some information on the purpose and mission of this fund:

"Since April 24, 2020, three grassroots homeless advocacy groups have been raising money to move unsheltered Oakland residents into hotels, in an attempt to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Fill Hotels not Graves is the innovative collaboration of The East Oakland Collective, Love and Justice in the Streets, and The Village in Oakland. Relying on a GoFundMe campaign, and without support from any government agencies or figures, they have sheltered vulnerable folks, prioritizing elders, the immunocompromised, and families with infants and small children. The goal is to give unhoused Oaklanders a site to Shelter In Place before they contract the deadly virus.

The organizers believe their efforts have not just proven successful, but are demonstrating that mutual aid and grassroots solutions are more effective than state programs. Hotels Not Graves debunks the ungrounded belief that only “professionals” can effectively do this work. The program is run by, and was created by, two unhoused Black and Brown woman leaders of The Village, who are sheltered through the program."
